Emerging Companies and Start-ups

Startups and Emerging Businesses

Entrepreneurs create start-ups because they’ve got great ideas. They turn to Allen & Gooch to translate those great ideas into great businesses.

Flexible Approach

Allen & Gooch start-up attorneys are vital in helping entrepreneurs set a trajectory for success. We help entrepreneurs with such tasks as selecting the most appropriate type of entity, drafting noncompete, employment, and operating agreements, and structuring financing from venture capital and commercial lenders. 

But we are also available to provide assistance with the day-to-day issues of running a business, whether it is signing leases or negotiating with vendors and customers. With every decision, our attorneys draw on their broad knowledge of the law and their knowledge of business to help entrepreneurs determine the most efficient and cost-effective allocation of resources. And as companies chart their ultimate course, we can offer advice on mergers and acquisitions, licensing agreements, and the full range of exit strategies.
