In the rapidly growing venture capital market, as investors increasingly seek to leverage strategic investments, it’s critical to find a legal team that can help you find and maximize those opportunities.

We tackle your business objectives from a holistic perspective, having advised both innovators and investors in a variety of industries on the full spectrum of domestic and international investment transactions.

With decades of experience working with companies throughout the business lifecycle—from formation to sale or initial public offering—we can partner closely with you to achieve efficient solutions to any challenge. We operate across practices and areas of specialty to provide a full slate of corporate and transactional advice, and we have a deep understanding of the venture ecosystem, current market trends and the variety of issues you might face in the world of growth equity and innovation. To best serve your needs, we draw on our history representing both venture and private equity funds and venture-backed companies spanning multiple industries in acquisitions, financing transactions, the negotiation of credit facilities, corporate governance, employment and equity compensation matters. In any sector, ranging from digital health to insurance and FinTech, we have the industry knowledge and skill to perform effective due diligence, help assess company strategy and beyond.
