Business, Corporate Finance, and Tax
Emerging Companies and Venture Capital
We represent emerging companies at every stage of development and across industry sectors, including software, hardware and peripherals, computer gaming, medical devices and clean technology. We also represent regulated industry sectors such as cannabis (in Washington State) and alcohol.* Our emerging-company clients find that Garvey Schubert Barer differentiates itself from larger competitors by providing a steadfast, accountable and experienced corporate lawyer to serve as a single point of contact for virtually all their legal needs. We offer a unique value proposition while maintaining a comprehensive platform that provides access to lawyers practicing in specialized legal areas such as labor and employment, executive compensation, real estate, intellectual property, technology licensing, and tax.
We regularly represent companies, angel investors and venture capital funds in private placements of equity and debt, joint ventures, strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions, and public offerings. Through this experience we bring a real-world understanding of the business and financing environments in which our emerging-company clients operate. We take the long-term view of partnerships with clients and frequently spend significant nonbillable time with emerging-company clients and their boards as an investment in their future success.
