Taking an early stage company to the next level often requires raising significant amounts of outside capital to successfully execute business strategies. The securities lawyers at Morningstar Law Group advise growing companies on the best way to structure preferred stock for sale to angel investors, venture capital funds, family offices and other private equity investors.
Our attorneys have worked with new and emerging companies, many in the technology and life sciences industries, to successfully handle hundreds of these transactions. We’ve negotiated $100 million agreements with some of the large venture capital and equity funds in the country — and worked with startups to raise $25,000 in growth capital to help get their business off the ground.
Regardless of the size or complexity of the transaction, the issues are often the same. What’s the most beneficial way to structure the deal? How much control are you comfortable giving up? What are the tax implications? Our securities lawyers understand these issues, and know the typical terms, because we negotiate these deals day in and day out.
Our finance attorneys also advise real estate developers on the financing of specific projects, including issues involving structure, governance, and partnership tax implications. A primary objective of development financing is achieving tax advantages for investors and developers through opportunity zones and other available tax credits.
