Our domestic practice is focused on helping and protecting dynamic young companies. We understand technology and the business issues involving software, hardware, internet, and media. With an entrepreneurial mindset, we partner with our clients throughout the growth cycle, from the startup phase to exit strategy. We provide strategic advice on business structure and business plans, facilitate and document financing transactions, and attend to the myriad of details in commercial negotiations and documentation so our clients can sleep better at night.
