Venture capital funding is critical to entrepreneurs, start-up companies and small business. The lawyers at PLDO are experienced in counseling our business clients to raise capital through private placements or debt financing which provides operating and growth capital. Venture capital is typically allocated to small companies with exceptional growth potential, or to companies that have grown quickly and appear poised to continue to expand. We work closely with the client and their financial advisors to structure multiple forms of capital formation.

In today’s challenging economic environment, clients often need assistance to access funding sources to maximize their effort for raising capital. Our experienced lawyers deal with financial institutions and investors routinely to identify the most appropriate source of capital depending upon the nature and maturity of the business.
