As a former startup founder myself, I bring a unique blend of legal counsel and startup advice to my clients. I specialize in corporate law, fundraising transactions, M&A and commercial contracts. I started my career working with Fortune 50 public companies at a major international law firm in New York, and I strive to bring the same level of dedication and expertise to my startup clients now. I believe that the best outcome for any negotiation is for both sides to come away feeling like they've won.
In general, I believe a good lawyer can help her clients do anything they have set their minds to. Here are some of the specific ways I can help.
RAISING STARTUP CAPITAL
Whether you're an idea-stage company looking to raise a friends-and-family round or a growing startup raising institutional capital, you need someone in your corner who's been there before. I can help.
Thinking of doing an equity crowdfunding raise under Regulation CF? As the first female founder to raise over $1 million on the Republic crowdfunding platform, I am one of the few true legal experts on equity crowdfunding.
EXIT STAGE LEFT
The day you sell your company is one of the most important days of your life as a startup founder. Whether it's a huge acquisition or a small strategic merger, it's always important to have great counsel beside you.
Should I form a corporation or an LLC? Do I need a Delaware C-corp, or might a partnership work just as well? From choosing the right entity to helping you form it correctly, I can help.
CAP TABLE MANAGEMENT
You'd be surprised how many founders need help managing their cap table -- and understanding the dilutive impact of financing transactions. This doesn't have to be an expensive proposition if you do it right.
A founder relationship is, at its core, a marriage. It's important to set clear expectations about what you're getting into -- and even then, things sometimes fall apart. When that happens, I can help.
If you'd like to chat about your legal needs and how I can help, I'm happy to jump on a quick call to discuss.
