Guidance for Startups and Companies in Growth or Transition

Securing funding is one of the most important, and most challenging, events in the early stages of a business's development. It is essential to prepare diligently, putting in place comprehensive documentation to assure investors of the value of a company's prospects and the strength of its business plan. An attorney who understands not only the law in this area, but the business and its technology, is essential to presenting the company in its best light.

Wilkinson Law works with new businesses seeking to partner with the right investor, as well as with existing companies seeking to achieve their business objectives through affiliated companies and joint ventures with third parties. Wilkinson Law offers advice on changing ownership structures within a firm or among affiliates and on preparing to sell or acquire a company or division.
