Our expertise is focused on advising small businesses, tech startups and private funds. Our objective is to foster business growth and we pride ourselves on offering professional services that positively influence a company’s life. Our legal services are specifically tailored to each client to add value and effect a positive contribution.

Corporate counsel services

As business lawyers for emerging companies and startups we tend to be involved from the early stages of our business clients’ life and are therefore in a position to provide strategic advice from the very outset on formation, corporate governance, shareholder relations, equity compensation and capital raising.

We advise clients on all manner of M&A issues, from entity conversions to so-called acqui-hires and corporate control contests. We are used to working with non-US clients in negotiating and documenting cross-border acquisitions, divestitures and joint venture transactions.

We have significant expertise in drafting all types of commercial agreements, including distribution, licensing, SAAS, reseller, revenue sharing, joint venture and all types of partnership agreements.

Capital raising and commercial finance 

Our main focus is to assist startups in closing third party investments. Because we have represented many startups in convertible instrument offerings and preferred stock rounds, we can anticipate the issues that can arise before closing and can help make the capital raising process as effortless and predictable as possible.

We advise fund managers and general partners on the formation of investment vehicles and draft their respective limited partnership or LLC operating agreements.

We also represent corporate borrowers in connection with domestic and cross-border financing transactions with banks and other institutional lenders.

Trademarks and intellectual property

Most of our clients are technology startups who span the whole breadth of the digital economy and we help them address most intellectual property issues:

  • US and international trademark registrations,
  • GDPR and CCPA compliance,
  • Terms of service,
  • Software, data and technology license agreements,
  • Reseller agreements,
  • Master service agreements,
  • Systems integration agreements.

Executive compensation

We assist our clients on all aspects of executive compensation, from stock plan adoption, options pricing, offer letters and bonuses to severance agreements.
