Our attorneys serve as strategic members of their clients’ business operations, whether formally as members of Advisory Boards and Boards of Directors, or informally during the course of counseling on purely legal matters.  Our engagement with a client company typically touches the most critical aspects of planning for the future direction of the company, such as whether to develop technology in house or license technology from outside sources.  We are often instrumental in helping a client develop its capital fundraising timeline and goals.  Similarly, we are called upon to help clients define their relationships with strategic partners, advising on joint ventures, co-development agreements, acquisitions, service arrangements and other strategic partnerships.

Creativity lies at the core of our services when structuring strategic relationships for our clients. Our experience at the highest levels of the corporate legal services industry has given us the insight necessary to suggest novel solutions to apparent roadblocks to forming strategic relationships.

An example of our firm’s creative role is the firm’s series of lectures to community leaders regarding the potential impact of the JOBS Act on the funding process for start-up companies. According to the SEC, underlying the JOBS Act is the belief that, “Cost-effective access to capital for companies of all sizes plays a critical role in our national economy, and companies seeking access to capital should not be hindered by unnecessary or overly burdensome regulations.” We specialize in providing strategic legal counsel to enable our clients to have access to early stage public financing when it makes sense. With our help, such clients are able to attract investors and offer the potential for immediate liquidity in the public securities markets.

Please be aware that we follow a formal engagement process. Nothing on this website is meant to construe the creation of an attorney-client relationship. We disclaim any duty of confidentiality prior to formal engagement. Therefore, please do not provide confidential information to us until you have formally engaged us as your attorney, including having received a formal engagement letter from us. Communicating with us by phone, email or otherwise does not create an attorney-client relationship between us.
