McCarter’s Venture Capital & Emerging Growth Companies practice empowers clients throughout the development cycle—from ideation to creation, capitalization, implementation, commercialization and monetization. Our representation is defined by a paradigm-shifting business model that offers a compelling value proposition with nationally renowned lawyers at a sensible fee structure.
Our numbers speak for themselves. We completed more than 120 transactions in the first half of 2018, with aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $1.3 billion, representing both the issuer/company and investors.
Our leadership in the tech and startup spheres is evident with Dave Sorin being recognized in NJBIZ’s “Vanguard Series: Leaders in Law,” which focuses on attorneys who are instrumental in giving back to their profession by providing opportunities for other lawyers to get to the next level in their careers or who stand out for their roles in important cases. The NJBIZ article highlights our work as the exclusive law firm associated with Colab at Bell Works, a massive live-work mecca and center of commerce and interaction developed by Somerset Development Company in Holmdel, New Jersey. Dave has established an “office hours” relationship between McCarter and Colab where attorneys meet with entrepreneurs weekly to discuss legal and operational issues, company formulation, intellectual property issues and cost-benefit analysis.
Our attorneys are frequent speakers and authors, and appear regularly in the press in connection with trending topics and developing news in the tech and entrepreneurial ecosystem. Below are select recent and upcoming speaking engagements and events. For more information, please click the titles. For those open to registration, a link is included.
