The Lifecycle of a Business

The convention among law firms is to articulate the work they do around practice areas or industry experience – sometimes both. However, as companies build, grow, change, and sometimes decline, plainly the life cycle of an enterprise is not static.

A start-up disrupting an industry will have entirely different legal issues to a mature business seeking to restructure or from a mature business dealing with an abnormal event or from a company on the threshold of insolvency.

From choosing and setting up a legal structure for your business, to connecting you with potential investors, to cashing out, we are there through the lifecycle of a business.
