While we act for medium size businesses and the corporate legal departments of large organizations, we have developed a specialization and affinity for working with start-up companies, particularly in the technology sector. We will help a start-up determine the optimal method of formation. If we incorporate a company, we will utilize attractive share structures to encourage future financing. In the tech sector, we help our clients understand the value of contractually clarifying the ownership of the intellectual property that is being developed through the use of contractor or software development agreements. We will help our clients understand when their IP should be further protected.
We help you build the foundation of your start-up to ensure its “attractiveness” to potential angel and institutional investors. Finally, when your business is primed for a financing, we can help prepare term sheets, subscription agreements and additional debt instruments to raise money for your business.
