Our Startup and Venture Capital Practice Team combines a wide range of expertise to provide a full spectrum of legal guidance from company formation, to explosive growth, to successful exit. We advise clients in all areas critical to new and emerging growth businesses—from formations, capital structures, financing transactions, and intellectual property matters, to employee benefits and executive compensation. We also regularly counsel our clients on business concerns and day-to-day legal issues that arise.
