Corporate Formation, Structure & Strategy

When it comes to corporate entities, one size does not fit all.

We advise on how to create corporate structures and management systems that make sense for your current operating needs, and help you to strategically plan for the road ahead. We advise entrepreneurs and innovative companies around the globe throughout all stages of their company’s life-cycles, from conception, to financing, to operation, to exit strategies including transition, private and public offerings, and sale.  As your outsourced in-house counsel, we help you navigate the legal issues you face in each phase of your business.  As an active participant of your executive team, we can help you make decisions to position your company for success, and, in many instances, connect you with business resources and partners, financing sources and other strategic assistance.
