Startups

We advise start-ups at all phases throughout their business life cycles. At inception, we form companies, draft organizational agreements, equity incentive plans and other foundational corporate documents. As companies mature, we partner with our clients to serve as their external general counsel, advising on compliance, ongoing commercial contracts, privacy and dispute resolution needs. As companies seek exits, we represent them in mergers, acquisitions and other business combinations.


Consumer Brands

Our attorneys work with a diverse range of clients in the retail and consumer products industries. We advise on a full spectrum of issues across the legal landscape, from intellectual property, manufacturing and design, commercial contracts, disputes, and financings, to mergers and acquisitions. In addition, we have significant experience in product labeling, safety and compliance.


Venture Capital Firms

We represent venture capital firms making pre-seed, seed and control investments in companies operating in a variety of industries. We also advise on the formation of investment funds, single-investment SPVs and other alternative investment structures.


Founders and Executives

We advise founders and executives on the individual aspects of their employment and securities holdings. We help executives to negotiate equity and employment offers, navigate complex human resources situations, and negotiate exit packages. We work with founders on partnerships and company formations and represent them in founder disputes and founder separations.


Agencies and Creatives

We serve as outside counsel to design and branding agencies, advising on employment law, intellectual property, representation contracts and fee/equity deals. We work with well-known artists, creatives and influencers to negotiate talent contracts, ensure protection of intellectual property rights, and advise on disputes.


Restaurants and Restaurateurs

We work with the country’s top restaurants, bars, restaurateurs, chefs, and sommeliers, providing a range of corporate, regulatory, intellectual property and employment law services. We advise our food and beverage clients on brand protection, intellectual property, licensing, and insurance coverage. We also negotiate leases, operating agreements, acquisitions, brand partnerships, sponsorships, and vendor agreements.
