Sophisticated Counsel in Venture Capital Financings and Private Placements

The attorneys in VLP’s Securities & Capital Raising practice represent issuers and investors in venture capital financings and all manner of private placements. We work with companies operating across a broad range of industries, with a particular focus on technology, start-up and emerging growth businesses. Our lawyers also counsel and advise venture capital funds, corporate venture capital groups, pooled investment vehicles, and angel, seed and high net worth investors.

VLP has the knowledge and skills necessary to handle the most sophisticated private securities transactions. We provide strategic and ongoing representation to investors and issuers in a wide variety of venture capital contexts, including preferred equity and convertible debt transactions. Our lawyers also represent issuers, agents and investors in private placements of equity and debt securities, including private investments in public equity (PIPEs).

Developing Innovative Solutions

VLP’s seasoned legal professionals focus on creating innovative capital-raising solutions for our clients. On the issuer side, we understand our clients’ businesses and work closely with them to structure transactions that meet their particular financing needs and goals. On the investor side, we have broad experience tailoring capital-raising transactions to serve the specific investment objectives of venture capital funds, angel investors, and other investor types. Our Securities & Capital Raising attorneys also routinely collaborate with lawyers in other practice groups throughout the firm, including Intellectual Property, Technology Transactions, Corporate and Mergers & Acquisitions, to help clients address and resolve the complex and diverse issues that so often arise in connection with these transactions.

Beyond venture capital financings and private placements, VLP Securities & Capital Raising attorneys work with corporate counsel to provide targeted advice and support in connection with public offerings. Many of our attorneys have substantial experience working as general and in-house counsel and are well-positioned to serve as part of a company’s overall public company reporting and regulatory compliance team.
