Our firm has built its experience working with emerging enterprises through incubation, acceleration and maturation. We have represented companies from bootstrapping, friends and family raises, angel investors, Series A and B, with varying capitalization strategies and formulas for success. We stand beside our clients as they grow. Through years of representing smaller companies, we have effectively digested a thorough understanding of company valuation, growth potential and internal needs, that equip us well for serving acquiring companies and investors as they seek out the opportunity to take a smaller successful company and move it to the next stage of success.
Our firm’s work is devoted to the success of our clients that only occurs when attempted deals close and succeed. We are here to help you “make a deal”, to break down the barriers to its success, and to enable you to move forward as profitably as possible once the deal is done.
