Corporate Transactions & Governance

In addition to venture debt and venture equity, Legal Scale offers assistance with a broad range of general legal matters such as corporate transactions, entity formation, and corporate governance. We have a particular emphasis and expertise in finance and equity markets and frequently work with domestic and international clients to help them grow their businesses and exceed their goals.

Corporate Transactions

Our lawyers stand ready to provide legal advice and assistance with a variety of corporate transactions, including negotiation and preparation of contracts, mergers and acquisitions, recapitalizations, restructuring and token offerings. We assist our clients with all of their needs, whether that’s a particular transaction or ongoing corporate advice and guidance.

Entity Formation

Choosing the correct structure for your business can set the stage for success. We will strategically assess your goals and recommend a business structure that will protect your personal assets and increase the likelihood of successfully securing the funding necessary to start your new venture. We can assist with simple structures, as well as more complicated bankruptcy-remote SPVs or Delaware statutory trusts based on the needs of each transaction.

Corporate Governance

Starting a new business is the ideal time to address corporate governance. Addressing issues of day-to-day operations, share allocations and the distribution of responsibilities among owners can avoid potentially disastrous disagreements in the future. Legal Scale can prepare the documents necessary to ensure clean documentation from the start and avoid business-ending ownership disputes. A thoughtfully-prepared operating agreement and organizational documents will identify the rights and responsibilities of the owners and provide a process for resolving disputes should the need arise. Similarly, the Legal Scale team can create clear operating agreements for funds and special purpose vehicles to align the interests of investors and ensure that these funds are poised to accomplish their objectives.

Trust Legal Scale for Help with Your New Business

Clients choose Legal Scale because we are responsive.

Our founding attorneys began their careers at one of the nation’s most respected large law firms. We gained extensive experience assisting clients with large-scale public and private transactions. But we felt that many clients were not receiving the personal attention they deserved. So we broke the mold and created something different — a boutique firm with the skills and resources of a large law firm.

We use our extensive experience to provide the sophisticated legal analysis clients traditionally expect from Biglaw, but couple that expertise with the personalized attention that can only be found at a small boutique.

We strive to build relationships that make our clients feel heard and valued. We work every day to earn our client’s trust by being meticulously prepared and providing responsive service and creative solutions as we facilitate transactions that help our clients generate alpha.

Our clients know that Legal Scale will handle the details of their transaction, allowing them to focus on the continued growth and success of their business. We strive to be transparent, candid and thorough at all phases of a business relationship and each transaction. We value your time and prioritize efficiency to get your deal done on your terms.
