Answers to FAQs

What is the difference between private equity and venture capital?

Both terms refer to investing in private companies and exiting through some form of a liquidation transaction. Although, venture capital is typically at the early stages of a business which makes it more speculative and at times a riskier environment. Private equity most often ties into the later point of a business. It’s more of an investment to help provide growth capital or liquidation for the founders of the early investors. 

Why would I need a corporate lawyer? 

The most important reason is for us to help look over and clarify contracts. A good agreement is like an insurance policy if things lead to disputes or into litigation. We don’t want you to get blindsided, and we want to provide you with solid advice, judgment, identify risks, and help negotiate key terms within the transaction.
