LEGAL HELP FOR SAN JOSE START-UPS & TECH COMPANIES

With a deep understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities in representing Silicon-Valley start-up companies, we provide comprehensive legal solutions tailored to your specific needs and objectives. Our attorneys take a strategic view of each company, examining its growth path relative to its industry, creating commitments for its technology and creative team, instituting solid corporate governance documentation, and helping to prepare for financing and ultimate exit. Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur with a game-changing idea or an established tech company looking to scale, we have the knowledge and resources to help you navigate the complexities of the tech landscape. 

We approach each emerging growth company as an individual organism growing within a shifting ecosystem. Knowing that cash is a minimum for an early company, we assist the start-up in determining which services are critical, and which can be delayed. We first focus on the team, and provide the necessary advice toward equity incentives and intellectual property assignment. If the start-up is a corporation, we create critical corporate governance documentation to document adherence to legal procedures. We assist in early-stage funding through various vehicles, including convertible notes and short agreements for equity, and also assist in facilitating seed equity rounds, and substantial venture and strategic financings.

We offer strategic guidance and practical advice to help tech companies navigate complex legal issues and make informed decisions that drive growth and success. Whether you’re looking to acquire another company or planning your exit strategy, we provide expert guidance in mergers and acquisitions and other strategic transactions. 

With experience representing overseas technology companies and owners, but wish to enter the U.S. market, we have the expertise to facilitate cross border transactions and navigate international regulations from simple sales office arrangements to corporate flip-ups.  

We take great joy in watching our client companies grow and prosper and welcome each opportunity to assist our clients in creating unique devices and services.
