Whether it's providing legal advice, negotiating deals, or helping clients navigate complex regulatory environments, we strive to be a trusted partner to our clients throughout their VC journey.

Curtis also advises start-ups through every step of their lifecycle, from structuring and fundraising to implementing growth strategies and facilitating exit.
Curtis works with start-ups from the very beginning, often before company formation. We assist with choosing the best entity and ownership structure, prepare formation documents, issue initial securities to founders, establish corporate governance procedures, and draft agreements for founders and service providers to assign and protect intellectual property. Our experienced team ensures that our clients' legal and business needs are met from the outset.
Raising funds can be a complex and challenging process. Curtis has extensive experience in assisting with different forms of start-up fundraising, including convertible debt, convertible equity, and venture capital. We help our clients negotiate term sheets, oversee the due diligence process, draft necessary documents, and coordinate closing and post-closing matters. In addition, we help and assist start-ups to access international capital markets, particularly in the United States. Our team works to establish the right framework to attract a US and international investor base, promoting our clients' fundraising abilities and growth potential.
As start-ups grow and scale, they face new challenges and opportunities. Curtis proactively addresses potential areas of litigation, advises in connection with the hiring of executive-level employees and board members, and assists with the negotiation, drafting, and closing of later-stage financings from VC and PE funds, strategic partnerships, and venture debt from banks or dedicated venture debt funds. Our team ensures that our clients have the necessary legal support to achieve their growth objectives.
When it's time for an exit strategy, Curtis is there to help advise, structure, and negotiate and implement your start-up's exit plan. Our dedicated mergers & acquisitions and equity capital markets teams manage and advise on asset purchases and mergers and acquisitions, whether you are the purchaser or the seller. We also advise on exit through the equity capital markets where relevant. Our clients can trust us to help them achieve the best outcome for their exit.
