Emerging Business & Technology

Our emerging business and technology (EB&T) lawyers provide growth businesses with personalized and effective long-term representation, from initial start-up to maturity, utilizing lawyers in offices in major technology centers throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. We offer clients a pragmatic, business-oriented approach to solving a range of complex legal problems, cost-efficient legal services, and value-added access to sources of capital and other business resources.

Our lawyers provide legal services well suited to rapidly growing technology and life sciences companies, including guidance on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), initial public offerings (IPOs), intellectual property (IP) protection, employment, international expansion, regulatory, cybersecurity, and tax issues. We leverage the experience and domain knowledge developed through our representation of many of the leading technology, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, financial services, and energy companies. We look to establish life-long lead counsel relationships, from early-stage development through global expansion and initial funding to an IPO or other liquidity event.

Our reputation and relationships help entrepreneurs and investors make profitable decisions and valuable connections. We keep clients close to the financing resources that fund today’s growing companies through our established relationships with the venture capital and investment banking communities in the Boston, New York, Mid-Atlantic, Silicon Valley, Southern California, and international markets.
