General Business

Businesses have a life cycle of their own, and often with complex legal decisions involved at every stage. Making important, well-informed decisions begins at the formation of the business and will repeat often throughout the life of the company.

From choosing the right business entity through raising capital and structuring ongoing operations, our business lawyers have the skill and judgment to help your business succeed in the short and long term. We have extensive experience in creating business entities, financing businesses through issuing securities and raising capital, and negotiating and drafting all kinds of commercial contracts. We also advise venture capital firms looking to invest in new and growing businesses.
