Financing & Capitalization

A company’s access to capital is critical to foster growth.  Economic and financial resources make growth possible through new investments, acquisitions, developments and expansions.  In the new economic environment, with lower risk tolerance and heightened scrutiny, counsel must be both creative and practical in order to provide effective financing solutions to clients.

Our attorneys counsel clients on all types of financing transactions, including those secured by business assets and/or real estate, as well as secured transactions under the Uniform Commercial Code.  We also assist clients with loan restructuring, loanwork-outs and the management and disposition of troubled assets.

Our attorneys represent startups and high-growth businesses in raising capital through a variety of means, including private placements of equity and/or debt, angel investments, mezzanine investments, venture capital investments, recapitalizations and institutional lender financing.

We advise our clients through every aspect of the capital raise process, including securities compliance and business structuring matters.  Our attorneys also have experience in representing a number of capital investors, including angel investors, private equity funds, mezzanine funds, venture capital funds and institutional lenders.

Our services include:

Analysis of Available Options to Raise Capital
