Private Equity & Venture Funds

We work with our clients to structure successful strategies for mergers, acquisitions, equity and debt financings to raise capital, incentivizing executives, and starting and expanding operations. We draw on our corporate experience to help funds, incubators, angel investors, high net worth individuals, family offices and foundations identify, pursue and complete innovative and productive deals. We create efficient tax structures, counsel on securities laws and privacy regulations and navigate complex regulatory issues.

Our transaction-seasoned attorneys take the lead to launch new companies and accelerate the growth of portfolio companies. We help companies maintain control of their operations, advance their vision and deal with the complex legal issues that accompany capital infusion and growth. We establish effective formation and management strategies; protect intellectual property and proprietary technology; and implement compliance with SEC and industry-specific regulatory bodies. We advise portfolio companies as they mature through their life cycles on strategic alliances, acquisitions, dispositions, investments and exit strategies.
