Emerging Companies and Venture Capital

Weintraub attorneys work with startups and emerging businesses to launch and move their new ventures forward. Our attorneys assist clients in making crucial early-stage decisions regarding choice of entity, ownership structure and operating arrangements, as well as licensing and taxation issues.

Our work with emerging companies extends to employment concerns such as key employee incentive compensation, equity grants, invention ownership, trade secret and other intellectual property protection (such as trademarks, copyrights and patents). We also advise entrepreneurs on positioning their companies for successful seed and venture capital financing rounds.

When specialized legal assistance is required, Weintraub provides comprehensive representation from the Firm’s various practice groups, bringing in attorneys who focus on intellectual property, employment matters, real estate transactions, and tax planning.

Additionally, if the need arises, Weintraub mediators and litigators are experienced in the disputes that can arise during a company’s life cycle.

Our attorneys are committed to working closely with clients, and with each other, through each stage of our clients’ growth – from formation, to raising capital, to major liquidity events.
