START-UP AND EMERGING COMPANIES
The attorneys at Bowles Liberman & Newman LLP provide a broad range of legal and strategic guidance to emerging start-up companies, looking beyond the immediate horizon to prepare our clients for long-term success. Our team regularly advises entrepreneurs on matters throughout the lifecycle of their business, ranging from the selection of an appropriate legal entity, to raising start-up capital and bridge financings, intellectual property protection, employment matters, contractual matters, founder arrangements, real property leases, VC financings and exit events. We pride ourselves on our unique ability to advise entrepreneurs on both important legal matters as well as strategic business decisions.
We work directly with founders to craft the ideal governing documents for their companies, including bylaws, shareholder agreements, operating agreements and partnership agreements. We also advise our clients on critical contracts for early-stage businesses, including stock purchase agreements, non-disclosure agreements, business plans, offering memoranda and other important documents related to a company’s development.
As our clients launch and develop their businesses, we provide comprehensive corporate counsel services on an ongoing basis. We advise our clients on contract matters, joint ventures, strategic alliances, employee hiring and terminations, licensing, corporate governance and compliance, debt financings, liability issues, capital raising, executive compensations, mergers and acquisitions transactions, business disputes and maintenance of corporate records. We are dedicated to providing creative and cost-effective legal solutions to our clients that lay a solid foundation for the future success of their emerging businesses.
