Day Pitney's attorneys have significant experience representing private equity and venture capital funds in several capacities. In addition to our involvement forming venture capital funds, leveraged buyout (LBO) funds, real estate funds and many different kinds of hedge funds, the firm's attorneys have also represented institutional, individual investors, venture capital funds and family offices in connection with their strategic investment transactions. We have experience establishing U.S. business operations and business partnerships as well as company asset sales, acquisitions, and financings, including debt and equity investments in portfolio companies and advice in connection with portfolio company IPOs and related stock sales.
The attorneys in the Private Equity and Venture Capital practice work as a one-stop-shop for all of your legal needs for both domestic and international private investment funds.
We assist our institutional venture finance clients in deploying capital in a wide range of industries, transaction structures and transaction objectives. Our venture finance clients have a diverse range of investment approaches, from “stand-alone” preferred equity investments to more comprehensive broker-dealer relationships.
We understand “angel” investments and work with our clients to negotiate and execute early stage transactions in an efficient and thorough manner. Angel investors are a diverse group, from family offices to individuals to strategic industry participants. We combine a rich history of precedential deal negotiation with a strong focus on our clients’ particular motivations and objectives. We are comfortable working with many different deal structures, from convertible notes to the various permutations of Series Seed preferred stock financings to more novel transaction structures such as SAFEs, depending on the client’s needs.
We also have experience assisting the “venture arms” of large corporate clients in making strategic investments in early stage companies, with an eye toward solidifying business relationships with the investment target or setting the stage for a future acquisition.
Our services also include representing family offices, with a focus on single family offices (SFO), and their executives and family principals in a wide variety of complex matters; providing tax advice in connection with the creation of new funds; structuring the investment entities, advising on acquisitions, restructuring existing funds, advising on investment activities, providing employment and benefit advice and advising on exit strategies.
