KickStart Program for Start-Ups and Emerging Companies
Our Silicon Valley-based start-up team specializes in advising entrepreneurs who want to rapidly scale new businesses by accessing private investment from high net worth individuals, venture capital and private equity firms. Using experience gained from working with hundreds of emerging companies, our Silicon Valley team provides first time and serial entrepreneurs with timely legal advice on matters ranging from choice of entity, corporate formation, founders share issuances and restrictions, stock option plans and appropriate uses of equity-based compensation, negotiation of debt and equity financing terms, board composition and governance, licensing and commercial transactions and agreements, to exits by acquisition or initial public offering. A fixed-fee can be offered for many legal services, including corporate formation, note financing, and trademark services.
The U.S. Desk can assist Swedish entrepreneurs entering the U.S. market to access the Kilpatrick Townsend LLP’s KickStart program, giving eligible startups a low-cost, comprehensive package of U.S. legal services that includes partner-level counseling, formation of a Delaware corporation and preparation of a comprehensive set of corporate documents and template agreements that will fully equip emerging companies to meet their initial legal needs. We provide innovative fee structures to partner with our clients and most services are provided on a fixed fee basis.
