A global partner to disruptors and innovators
Working with high-growth enterprises and their investors is different than serving long-established companies, from the business challenges they face to their level of legal insights. Our emerging growth and venture capital lawyers think like our clients think, providing advice that’s tailored, pragmatic and cost effective.
Agility, creativity and adaptability are vital to success, whether you’re an investor or an emerging company. We share our knowledge of trends and benchmarks across sectors to help you make decisions with confidence. We’re inspired by the challenge of finding innovative solutions to new problems – and better solutions to old ones. In the last three years, we’ve completed over 2,200 financings totaling nearly USD82 billion.
We tackle the challenges you need resolved, and we address them from all sides. Working in multidisciplinary teams, including tax, IP, employment, regulation and technology, our lawyers combine industry knowledge and local experience to give you full advice. You get a portfolio of services for each stage of your business lifecycle.
“They are incredibly close to the venture community […] They do hundreds of top-tier venture deals.”
For investors, we help you identify opportunities and maximize returns. And we manage and commercialize innovation with your strategic, short- and long-term investment goals in mind. For high-growth companies of all sizes, we advise on everything from raising capital to preparing an IPO. We guide you through both opportunities and risks. We’ve helped turn startups into international enterprises. Many of the same companies continue to rely on us today.
With roots dating back to the early days of Silicon Valley, we’re among the largest emerging growth and venture capital law firm teams. We’re 900 corporate lawyers around the world, focused on solving any problems that get in the way of your doing business. Though we’re your outside counsel, we pair up with you to give you practical, strategic advice that addresses commercial reality.
