Lawyers in the Private Equity & Venture Capital practice have many years of experience representing both portfolio companies and equity investors in private equity and venture capital transactions. We work with our clients to enhance company value and investor return.
Through the use of preferred stock and convertible debt, stock purchase or subscription agreements as well as stock purchase warrants, registration rights agreements and other instruments, attorneys creatively assist clients in managing transaction risks and allocating rewards in accordance with client expectations.
Our lawyers are knowledgeable about the many devices used in venture financing, such as antidilution protection, board representation, investor controls over key decisions like limitations on financings and exit strategies, as well as investor protections like registration rights and informational requirements. The firm's lawyers also carefully document matters of executive compensation and other management issues.
