FINANCING & SECURITIES

Raising capital for a business, whether debt or equity, often implicates complying with securities regulations. Securities compliance can be intimidating for any management team, but it is especially daunting for first-time fundraisers. Hiring an experienced attorney takes the guesswork out of compliance and fundraising. We can help you choose the best debt, equity, or hybrid instrument to raise capital for your venture, regardless of growth stage or complexity. We also assist clients with mapping out fundraising strategies that align with their business goals.

 

We have assisted clients in securing funding from a wide array of sources, including individual angels, angel groups, investment bankers, private equity, and venture capital firms. We will take the time to explain how your investors may assess your valuation and how a participating liquidation preference may impact founders’ exit opportunities.

 

Our Financing & Securities services include, but are not limited to the following:

 

  • Seed financings (including “friends & family”)

  • Angel and venture capital financings

  • Debt financings
