New York City Premier Boutique Law Firm
Talk to Us.
Our clients are small and medium size technology companies, many at the early stages of development. From the "idea" stage to clients who may have raised a round or three of capital - and need to clean up a messy cap table, we specialize in early growth tech.
We help with the worries that keep founders up at night, whether hiring people, allocating equity, dealing with shareholders and investors, raising money, client negotiations, and early litigation counseling (before you need a litigator).
We focus on start-ups and early/medium-stage technology companies - we focus on 'venture.' Most law firms see you as a feeder to their other practices. We see you as the goal - we want to work with growing/emerging companies. Our clients are all over the world - but they are all coming to the US to seek the higher valuations/better investor relations and, ultimately, deeper capital markets they find in the US.
Clients choose us because they need someone focused on start-ups. They have usually either had a bad experience with a small law firm that doesn't understand venture capital and start-ups, or they have experienced "Big Law" and their incredibly high invoices (or both). We hit the sweet spot.
Many of my clients are international with US-based holding companies (Delaware usually). My 17 years abroad helped me "translate" between different regimes and enabled Civil and Common Law lawyers to unite and bridge the legal needs of very different jurisdictional authorities.
We regularly handle early-stage financings, including Convertible Notes, Seed, and Series A/B financings; "flips" to Delaware "TopCos," commercial and technology contracts, licensing agreements; international transactions; strategic tax; early and mid-level mergers and acquisitions. We are regularly on the other side of the "Big Firms." In the last year, we've been across the table from Goodwin/Cooley/Gunderson/Fenwick/Latham and many other prominent US players. We hold our own and get our clients what they need.
