Rodriques Law, PLLC plays a crucial role in helping to raise capital for start-ups and emerging companies. We are closely involved in formulating, structuring and implementing an effective capital-raising plan, in order to maximize effectiveness and minimize problems and delays.
Emerging businesses have always faced obstacles that established companies do not. As such, an experienced lawyer should be an integral part of the company, from its start-up through friends and family (angel financing), to building its sales and marketing strategy, to venture capital financing, to finding and structuring the right strategic alliances and relationships, to maturity and exit. We provide invaluable assistance in helping our clients avoid common risks, pitfalls and road-blocks along the way to success. We help with establishing market presence, forging supplier and provider relationships, developing customer goodwill, gaining bargaining power, achieving economies of scale and coping with federal and state regulatory schemes.
We also assist clients in forming and managing a wide variety of private equity funds, including venture capital funds, hedge funds, film funds and other forms of investment vehicles.
