Venture Capital

Starting a new business or expanding an existing business often requires the infusion of capital. For many business owners, this capital must come from outside investors, leaving them with the dilemma of how to obtain financing and structure financing deals to protect their interests.  As an experienced venture capital attorney, I help business clients of all sizes find investors, draft investment documents and understand their legal rights and obligations when it comes to having investors in their business.

With more than twenty years of experience, I understand the intricacies of obtaining capital for newly-formed or established businesses. I offer personal service and work collaboratively with each of my clients and their management to ensure that their business goals are met in a way that also minimizes their risks.

Raise Capital with Experience on Your Side

Attracting investors to a startup venture or to fund the expansion of an existing business can be challenging without the advice and assistance of an experienced venture capital attorney.  With the help of a skilled lawyer, a business can obtain financing and make sure that the investment is properly structured to protect their interests.

I am skilled at structuring new businesses to appeal to investors who are necessary to provide capital and work collaboratively with clients to help them demonstrate a reasonable growth rate that will yield profits for potential investors. Additionally, I assist clients in obtaining venture capital financing from a broad range of investors, such as private hedge funds, strategic investors and friends and family members. I also work to secure funding from angel investors, which are typically private individuals or groups of people seeking good investments.

Once potential investors have been identified, the next step is to draft and negotiate investment documents. I am highly skilled at drafting these complicated documents so as to maximize investment potential and minimize risks. I simultaneously work hand-in-hand with business owners and management to make sure that they understand their legal rights and obligations under the terms of the proposed investment agreement.  

When investment is necessary to start or expand your business, representation by trusted counsel can be invaluable to help you obtain the financing that you need while protecting your interest in your business.
