Busch Mills’ corporate attorneys have expertise in venture capital and franchise transactions unmatched by many of the Southeast’s largest law firms. We counsel both entrepreneurs and established companies in structuring early and late-stage angel and venture capital transactions, and develop and prepare private placements, registered public offerings, hedge funds and project financings. Members of the firm have represented clients in connection with private placements of equity and debt securities, venture capital, project finance, joint venture transactions, IPO’s and ongoing SEC and state securities compliance issues.
Our venture capital lawyers regularly represent both issuers and investors in private capital-raising transactions. Our issuer clients range from start-up entities who are seeking seed capital to more mature entities who are obtaining mid- and late-round financings and bridge financings. Our investor clients include angels, venture capital funds, and private equity funds. We assist our venture capital clients in due diligence investigations of potential portfolio companies and help negotiate, structure and document their investments, whether in the form of preferred stock, convertible debt or another security. We also counsel clients as they prepare for and go “public”, and advise clients when they want to go “private”. Our team also assists both public and private companies in connection with federal and state securities law requirements when establishing executive and employee stock compensation plans or arrangements.
