Starting a business requires founders to give careful thought not only to issues that will arise short-term, but legal, regulatory, and sector–specific requirements that they will confront further down the road. Decisions made at the early stages of a new company can significantly impact a company’s ability to secure financing, attract qualified personnel, and successfully expand its operations.
We represent entrepreneurs and start-up companies based both inside and outside the United States, assisting them in making the right decisions from the outset. We have training and experience both in the legal and business aspects of company expansion, financing, partnering, and operation, and we provide business–savvy guidance in crafting structures for emerging technology companies. We also act as outside general counsel to address the myriad issues that confront a growing company, collaborating with our network of colleagues both in the United States and abroad to provide coverage on the full spectrum of legal issues confronting a company. We help clients manage big law firm engagements and the process such engagements entail cost-efficiently.
