Start-up businesses need very different legal services from those required by large, established institutional clients. Our attorneys recognize this and have developed a strong following among entrepreneurs, who rely upon our unique skills to start their businesses off on sound footing. We are also sensitive to the financial constraints of emerging businesses, so we strive to work as partners with them by considering alternative fee arrangements that accommodate their immediate needs. Our services for start-up businesses include:

  • Financing and capital
  • Private placements
  • Business formation and structuring
  • Joint ventures
  • Contract drafting/negotiation/review
  • Employment matters
  • Interaction with governmental entities
  • Taxation
  • Pension
  • Intellectual property (particularly copyright and trademark protection)
  • Real estate
  • Estate and succession planning
