Your Business is Hitting its Stride

After considerable time spent developing and strategizing, your business is finally focused on one goal: creating and growing a space for itself in the marketplace. You have developed a robust understanding of the competitive landscape and target markets. Projections look promising. Large-scale investors are showing interest. You have begun to negotiate your first customer agreements. 

But, as you struggle to set up support services and systems, finish promotional campaigns, and secure adequate inventories, you find an avalanche of ancillary concerns crowding in. Term sheets and informal understandings with customers and vendors need to be documented. Key employees need contracts. New investor relationships need to be negotiated without losing the support of those who got you here.

Accordingly, the following transactions and considerations need to be handled with precision by experienced business counsel:

  • Documenting customer contracts
  • Protecting intellectual property assets, confidential information,and trade secrets
  • Preparing vendor agreements 
  • Ensuring promotional claims are clear and defensible 
  • Managing and planning for talent, including through key employee and executive contracts 
  • Non-compete, non-solicit, and confidentiality concerns 
  • Managing for industry regulation 
  • Changing investor profiles—often to larger, more institutional sources of capital
