Cash is the lifeblood of emerging growth companies that must be able to raise money, when necessary, in a timely and efficient manner. Companies seeking private investors value law firms that offer both investor contacts and extensive experience in venture capital and private investments.

Perkins Coie is a recognized leader in venture capital transactions, representing both companies seeking financing and venture capital firms seeking to invest. Our team was recently recognized by Chambers USA as one of the leading venture capital practices in the United States. Our expansive network enables us to introduce our clients to our venture capital contacts, which, in turn, helps both the companies seeking funding and the venture capital firms seeking new investments.

Our attorneys have handled hundreds of venture capital deals. Our representation of both emerging growth companies and venture capital firms provides us with broad and deep experience negotiating and closing financing transactions quickly and efficiently.

As a full-service firm, we also offer emerging growth companies counsel on a wide range of critical early-stage business activities, including structuring outsourcing arrangements, negotiating trade secret and noncompete agreements with employees, and developing key customer and vendor contracts.
