Emerging Companies
Our Emerging Companies practice provides a full range of legal and business services to start-up and emerging companies to meet their needs from formation to liquidity. We understand the needs of rapidly expanding companies and aim to provide them with more attention than they receive from large law firms and a higher quality work product than they receive from small firms, all at affordable rates.

When working with emerging businesses, we strive to become as knowledgeable as possible with our clients' business objectives and overall goals. Because cash flow is always a primary concern for emerging companies, the firm offers various fee arrangements that are tailored to the specific needs of our clients.

Our attorneys assist with a wide range of legal and business services geared toward development and growth, including:
  • Review of business plans and evaluation of key strengths and weaknesses;
  • Review of financial models;
  • Introductions to sources of funding and service providers;
  • Company formation, including selection of the most appropriate type of entity;
  • Capital agreements and private placements;
  • Founders agreements, employee incentive plans and employment law compliance;
  • Attendance at board meetings and related strategic advice and counseling;
  • Angel financings, venture capital financings, equipment financing and joint development arrangements;

  • Internet related advice;
  • Confidentiality and consulting arrangements;
  • Joint venture and strategic partner structuring;
  • Mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and liquidity fundings;
