King & Spalding's Emerging Company Practice Group represents entrepreneurial and emerging growth companies, both public and private, and the investors and investment banking firms that finance them. Our job is to function as members of a team with growing enterprises that want to succeed in business. We concentrate on helping companies get started, find financing and structure and grow their businesses. From business planning and raising capital, to protecting intellectual property assets, to negotiating mergers and partnering deals, our lawyers provide the expertise and experience needed to support the growth of emerging growth companies.
We have worked closely with numerous emerging and established companies from a mix of industries. We are familiar with the most rapidly growing and changing fields including communications, software development, biotechnology and financial services. As companies grow, our securities litigation, labor and employment, executive compensation, real estate and environmental experience positions us to meet their additional legal needs.
King & Spalding provides counsel to many of the top venture capital and investment banking firms on issues relating to fund formation, investments, mergers and acquisitions and public offerings—a valued role that keeps our lawyers close to the industry pioneers and sources of capital that continue to play a significant part in the development of today's emerging company marketplace.
As members of a company's team, King & Spalding lawyers counsel management through all phases of corporate development—from inception and business planning through financing, partnering and merger and acquisition activities.
