Venture Capital & Emerging Growth

A core focus of the Firm’s practice is serving the needs of emerging growth and technology companies. The Firm draws upon its attorneys’ broad transactional expertise to provide strategic legal and business advice to its emerging growth clients through their entire life cycle – from formation and initial funding, to venture capital financings and through eventual exit by IPO or acquisition.

As a result of the Firm’s deep roots in the emerging growth market, the Firm understands the unique practical business needs of early-stage and high-growth companies. The Firm typically acts as outside general counsel to its emerging growth clients, including participating in board-level discussions and serving as an extension of the management team. The Firm strives to understand its clients’ business and markets and give them senior-level attention, which enables the Firm to provide practical and cost-effective legal advice.

Representing private companies as they seek funding from venture capital firms, angel investors or other investors has been a key component of the Firm’s practice. The Firm also represents and has extensive relationships with the most prominent venture capital firms and angel investor groups in Southern California. The Firm has extensive experience in advising on a wide range of financing structures, including seed and angel investor financings, venture capital investments, private equity and other institutional financings, bridge loans, and PIPE transactions for public companies. The Firm’s representation of cutting-edge companies and leading investors allows it to stay apprised of developing market trends and, where appropriate, to make introductions to investors and companies.
