Start-ups and Venture Capital

We advise founders and investors on everything from the creation and financing of their project to the development, sale and exit of start-ups.

In private equity, and especially in the field of venture capital, the alignment of interests of investors, operating shareholders (especially founders) and members of the board of directors and executive management plays a central role in regard to joint success and a prosperous future. We draft financing and shareholders’ agreements, articles of association and organisational regulations tailored to specific needs, which take into account the interests of the individual players involved in the start-up.

In particular, we help founders choose the appropriate legal structure of their firm, support them in establishing effective corporate governance and demonstrate to them the various options that they have in regard to financing.

We also advise investors on effective and efficient incentive structures for the founders and on monitoring.
