Venture Capital Transactions

Venture capital transactions can seem extremely complex. There are many different types of rights of various classes of preferred and common stock (as well as other securities) that must be coordinated with one another. Investors negotiate various mechanisms to insure they will have influence and visibility in the company’s affairs and to maximize a profitable exit. However, these complex mechanisms typically take similar forms and follow similar patterns. Having an attorney who is familiar with these mechanisms and patterns makes all the difference in the efficiency with which the transaction proceeds. It is important to have attorneys on both sides who not only can produce technically excellent documentation, but are also experienced in venture capital transactions and know what terms are expected and reasonable and what terms are not. Ward has completed numerous venture capital transactions and has the legal knowledge and experience for smooth and successful execution.
