Legal Counsel for Emerging Companies

What We Do

Starting Up

From choosing the right entity to founder agreements and early stage financing transactions, making the right decisions depends upon asking the right questions. We help entrepreneurs navigate the myriad issues associated with launching a new business. 


From term sheet to closing and beyond, we help companies through all aspects of raising capital in all types of financing transactions including convertible notes,  SAFEs, warrants, preferred stock, credit facilities and other transaction structures.


We provide emerging companies with experienced and affordable counsel for their critical third party relationships with customers, licensors and licensees, resellers, employees,  consultants, advisors, service providers and other strategic partners.

General Counsel

Building an emerging company can be lonely as there are few places to turn for experienced and independent advice.  We get to know our client’s business so we can serve as a knowledgeable sounding board for business and legal matters.

Our Clients

Experience, Value and Communication

Company Counsel doesn't do marketing. Instead, we obtain new clients solely through word of mouth. This means that each of our clients is connected in some way to our other clients. Our clients tell us that it's like being in a secret club.

Why Choose Us

"Company Counsel has been a true partner for all of my startups. While we may employ many legal specialists throughout a company's life cycle - from inception to acquisition - Company Counsel is a lynchpin to managing all of our legal issues.” ~ Dave Balter – Serial Entrepreneur (BzzAgent, Smarterer and Flipside Crypto)
