The lawyers in our Emerging Companies/Venture Capital practice provide strategic business and legal advice to emerging companies and their founders, managers, investors, boards of directors and advisors.
A race against time to create value and reduce risk.
We bring decades of experience to helping these companies create high-growth businesses in the information technology, life sciences, energy/cleantech and agribusiness sectors. We staff matters efficiently and offer our clients competitive and flexible pricing structures.
We also facilitate introductions between our clients and our network of contacts - VCs, angels and corporate investors, bankers, entrepreneurs, accountants, consultants, etc. - to help ensure their success.
The strength of our corporate venture capital practice is one of the distinguishing factors that sets us apart from other law firms. We advise corporate investors in developing and executing venture investment strategies and we advise in both domestic and international financing transactions, from small seed-rounds to much larger later-stage investments. Our lawyers have handled hundreds of portfolio investments and have long-standing relationships with a wide range of corporate investors, including many Fortune 100 companies.
Many of our business lawyers are technology company veterans, with an operating company perspective of how to successfully start and grow a business. The strength of our practice, coupled with the firm’s leading regulatory practice and international offices, provides our clients with sophisticated guidance and counseling on complex business and legal issues at all stages of growth.
We represent clients in emerging technology centers worldwide, including Palo Alto/San Francisco, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Asia (Singapore, Tokyo, China and Hong Kong), London and Texas. We also have a strong focus on representing non-U.S. companies as they establish operations in the United States.
Our lawyers are consistently recognized as leading practitioners by their peers, clients and various publications and ranking organizations including U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” survey, Chambers USA, The Legal 500 and Who’s Who Legal, among others.
