We have long-standing relationships with venture capitalists and angel investors, and constantly look for opportunities to match innovation to investment. We regularly introduce our start-up clients to our extensive network of financing sources, and know how to circumvent common financing obstacles once a connection is made.
We understand the cash constraints facing new ventures, and use innovative billing practices, a practical, problem-solving approach to develop cost-effective legal solutions to accommodate and facilitate the emerging companies’ growth and those of their investors.
As our clients’ businesses grow, our finance, securities, tax, intellectual property, labor, employment and employee benefits, and real estate attorneys collaborate to anticipate problems and offer no-nonsense advice on a cost-efficient basis. Our number one goal: make sure our emerging growth clients and their investors succeed through all phases of their life cycle.
