Financings & Fund Formation

Representing both companies and investors, we are experts in all types of financing structures for private companies, including venture capital equity financings, venture debt, convertible notes, warrants, private equity, commercial lending, SAFE/KISS instruments, and secondary sale transactions. We’ve represented hundreds of clients in venture capital, angel, and other financing transactions. We know what the venture community wants and expects from companies, enabling faster and more confident fundraising.

We have decades of experience representing a wide variety of investors in the formation and maintenance of their investment entities and the evaluation, negotiation, and protection of their investments. Our clients include individual investors, angel groups, seed funds, venture funds and secondary funds. We also represent individuals who are joining or leaving general partners and other fund managers.

Our fund formation practice includes the formation of investment funds and special purpose investment vehicles, regulatory and securities compliance, the admission and withdrawal of managers, hiring and departure of employees and consultants, issuance of carried interest and transfers of interests in fund and management entities.

In our individual investor practice, we represent high net worth individuals such as angel investors, founders and C-level executives, protecting their interests in critical equity-based transactions such as financings, mergers/acquisitions, and executive compensation arrangements.

We also represent individual and institutional buyers and sellers of securities in the secondary markets in transactions that include purchases of private company securities from individuals and venture and corporate funds, acquisitions of portfolios from venture and corporate funds, purchases of partnership interests from limited and general partners and acquisitions of investment funds.
