Start-Ups & Early Stage Companies
We work closely with start-up and emerging companies from inception through financing, growth and maturity. We have worked with hundreds of start-up clients on incorporation, angel and venture financings, intellectual property, employment, mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, licensing, immigration and more.
SederLaw attorneys provide extensive experience, teamwork and a reputation over the past 100-years for having a strong dedication to assisting our clients in growing their business. Several of our attorneys in the Business & Corporate group are prior start-up business owners ourselves, which allows them to keenly understand and be aware of the challenges faced by start-ups and emerging growth companies. Clients across a wide array of industries partner with us to get the advantage of an entrepreneurial law firm culture that specializes in a broad range of services to assist them in transforming breakthrough ideas into successful companies. We advise on organizing, structuring and documenting all forms of legal entities throughout the United States, including initial investments, tax structures, founders’ agreements, protection of intellectual property and the satisfaction of regulatory requirements, as well as structuring and advising on the implementation of exit strategies and liquidity events through private sale, public offering, recapitalization and other strategies. Our attorneys evaluate and structure seed, angel and venture capital financings, joint ventures and strategic partnerships, and joint development arrangements. We often serve as outside general counsel to the executive management teams of our clients.
