We believe small business capital formation is critical to not only the health of our individual business clients but the economy as a whole.
Banking reform precipitated as a result of the great recession has left many small businesses with a lack of access to capital. Without capital many businesses cannot grow, adapt, or even fund their current, successful business. Capital practitioners and even the US Securities and Exchange Commission have gotten creative in an attempt to provide solutions while still protecting the investing public.
We have structured and focused our firm to help our clients raise capital and/or leverage their business to bring in capital.
There are only a limited number of ways a business can raise capital, outside of the provision of its products and services. A business can borrow (including from a traditional bank if you can get it), participate in a joint venture, franchise, sell equity, and/or license your intellectual property and other assets.
Our combined decades of legal and business experience allows us to deliver guidance, documentation, and provide the legal and regulatory assistance needed to raise money in a variety of formats. Some examples of how we can help:
