Entity Formation

The initial decisions you make as a business owner, such as your company’s entity structure, can have a massive impact. This is especially true as your organization changes or grows over time, as successful enterprises tend to do.

Business owners must consider various issues, such as potential liability, taxation, and transferability of stakeholder interests, when making this foundational decision for their organization.

Corporate Financing

Financing is usually needed for businesses at some point in time, whether it’s in the start-up phase or through a period of growth or difficulty. Unfortunately the process of raising capital for any startup or venture may be complex and challenging, with details that are often outside of the regular day-to-day activities of the organization.

What Are Potential Sources of Corporate Financing?

  • Venture Capitalists are investors who acquire an interest in early-stage businesses and start-ups.
  • Angels investors are also known as private or seed investors. They invest money into a start-up in exchange for stock in the company.
  • Banks can issue secured or unsecured funds to an organization in the form of debt financing.
  • Crowdfunding platforms such as Republic and We Funder are popular for raising money for start-up companies. These platforms are subject to various laws and restrictions.

The Venture Lawyer represents both lenders and borrowers in a variety of financing transactions, including acquisition finances, senior and mezzanine debt, venture lending, and other financings. We represent our clients from the term sheet stage, formal documentation and through closing.
