Venture Capital and Private Placement

Our Venture Capital Practice Group has over forty years of experience representing entrepreneurs, investors, and venture capital companies in a variety of transactions, including conception and business plan development, “friends and family” funding, initial and subsequent rounds of venture capital financing, mezzanine debt financing, negotiations with strategic partners, and the ultimate realization of the investment upon sale or liquidation of the investment.

Our attorneys have been involved as owners and entrepreneurs in a number of venture capital projects including Syracuse Telephone Company, Onondaga Venture Capital Fund, Gallinger Real Estate, Eagle Newspapers, MONY Towers, the State Tower Building, Presidential Plaza, Northway Plaza, EMO O’Donnell Building, The Craftsman Inn, and The Marx Hotel.

In addition to providing our clients with technical expertise, we often consult our Tax Planning and Advocacy, and Intellectual Property Practice Groups when analyzing and planning venture capital projects, which results in a comprehensive road map to a successful outcome.
