We work with founders of startups and early-stage companies to launch dynamic new ventures in a variety of business verticals. We help these clients with a variety of transactional needs from their formation through seed- and later-stage capital raises.
We help C-suite and senior executives manage sensitive moments in their careers: from new-hire employment negotiations; to separation and settlement negotiations; to circumstances warranting special incentive, bonus and equity compensation arrangements.
We help executives and management teams navigate the most transformational moments of their companies’ corporate existence: from evaluating a potential sale transaction; to exploring strategic partnership and joint venture opportunities; to negotiating management and executive change-of-control “exits” and post-closing “rollover” arrangements.
