At Loeb & Loeb, we understand the needs and challenges facing start-up and high growth companies, as well as the angels, venture capital firms and strategic investors that invest in them. We combine a comprehensive knowledge of the venture capital market with a clear understanding of our clients’ vision and businesses objectives to provide creative solutions and practical legal advice at every stage of the business cycle.
Our attorneys offer a full range of services to emerging companies across a variety of industries, including digital media, entertainment, consumer brands, cleantech, financial services, life sciences, software, semiconductors and telecommunications. We counsel such companies in their formation, issuance of equity for services, seed funding, financings, intellectual property protection, human resource matters, acquisitions, dispositions, and IPOs and other public offerings. We also help emerging companies identify appropriate funding sources and partners and assist them in initiating and developing relationships with funding partners. Additionally, we often serve as outside general counsel to our clients and assist them with their day-to-day legal matters.
We represent venture capital and other private equity funds, and strategic and angel investors in their formation of investment vehicles, fundraising, and governance activities. Much of our practice involves representing investors in all types of financings, from early or seed stage investments through subsequent multi-investor and mezzanine financings, recapitalizations, leveraged buy-outs, and dispositions. We also have extensive experience representing the principal investing and merchant banking groups of investment banks, funds managed by investment banks, and strategic investors in connection with various private equity investments.
Our attorneys understand the venture capital process and have significant experience with the documentation involved in venture capital financings and other private equity transactions. Just as important, we understand the market when it comes to the standards by which institutional investors assess ventures, the types and terms of securities involved, and the dynamics of multi-investor groups. At Loeb & Loeb we provide added value through educated assessments of legal risks, savvy dealmaking, and efficient and effective transactional counseling that achieves results.
We approach each client relationship as a partnership. We are a resource for our clients, including numerous investors, start-ups, growth companies, and acquisition targets. From counseling on risk assessments to getting the deals done, we collaborate with our clients throughout the investment cycle. Our practice brings together attorneys with corporate, capital markets, technology licensing, tax, employment, intellectual property, litigation, environmental, and other backgrounds, as needed, to best service our clients’ needs.
