Capital enables growth. Start-ups may require several rounds of external financing before they are self-funding or able to reach a liquidity event. Our clients retain us to represent them in all aspects of venture capital financings, from providing introductions to investors, to negotiating the terms, to ensuring compliance with securities law.
We understand the need to balance aggressive protection of founders’ interests with preservation of the long-term relationship with investors while making sure the deal gets done. Because we represent some of the world’s most prominent venture capitalists, we know the financing terms and their challenges, and bring this knowledge as value-add in negotiating the term sheet and the principal documentation. We anticipate issues and their resolution. We get the deal done—efficiently and effectively.
