Emerging Companies

GW represents startup companies through every stage of their lifecycle. GW currently represents over one hundred technology startups and has counseled hundreds of entrepreneurs and startup companies on matters including incorporation, corporate governance, employment issues, commercial contracts, and seed and venture capital financings. GW has represented companies participating in the leading startup accelerators, such as YCombinator, 500 Startups, Techstars. GW's attorneys serve as mentors at Starta Capital Accelerator, Pulsar Accelerator, and Hack Temple. GW's attorneys are skilled at counseling on the basics (e.g., formation, financings, equity incentive arrangements, labor and employment, governance issues and intellectual property protection).

As a result of our experience in the startup community, we understand the practical business needs of early-stage companies. GW acts as outside general counsel to many of startup and emerging growth clients, including participating in board-level discussions and serving as an extension of the management team. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide cost-efficient and practical solutions with the flexible terms that startup companies desire.

GW maintains an extensive network of service providers and investors in several jurisdictions and can often act as one-stop shop for just about every need of an emerging company.
