Successfully launching and growing a business requires an integrated strategy and a broad vision: you need to address immediate needs and minimize future risk, all while keeping costs under control. And, you need a team of advisors that understands those goals.
For entrepreneurs, investors, and innovators, we are that team, at the ready with services for every stage of your venture’s lifecycle.
Whether from founders, angel investors, venture capital, or crowdfunding, growth capital is the lifeblood of any emerging business. Our attorneys have been on both sides of the table in a wide array of investment negotiations, giving us valuable insight into the legal, financial, and emotional aspects of funding negotiations.
Our lawyers have extensive experience representing businesses in internal and external disputes, in the courtroom and in arbitration. In addition to being sharp litigators, we are skilled at incorporating the clients’ business, financial, and emotional goals into a holistic strategy for resolving difficult disputes.
Our approach to intellectual property emphasizes creation of long-term value by establishing, developing, and protecting these essential assets. We regularly advise clients on matters of trademark, copyright, and trade secrets, including registration of intellectual property and enforcement of IP rights.
We routinely counsel clients on mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate transactions across a wide range of industries. With experience representing buyers and sellers at all stages of development, our lawyers are well-positioned to maximize value and advise on risk in high-stakes corporate transactions.
We believe that a venture’s investment in the environment and society is an investment in the value of the company itself. Our lawyers form B-corporations and 501(c)(3)s, ensure compliance with environmental and labor standards, and otherwise integrate our clients’ values into the fabric of their business.
Our music practice counsels clients on a wide variety of negotiations, with an emphasis on independent record and publishing deals and digital distribution. In the visual arts, we counsel artists and galleries on questions of commissions, liability, insurance, and copyright.
