Finance is the lifeblood of business – whether raising seed capital, obtaining venture capital, or issuing shares to new investors. Investment funds allow your business to grow. But issuing securities is a heavily-regulated activity. Its legal implications are every bit as important as its financial implications.

Valant lawyers protect their clients’ interests in negotiating investment transactions, while helping ensure that their clients do not run afoul of the complex web of state and federal statutes and regulations that govern the issuance of securities. Corporate finance is a problem that all businesses must concern themselves with; Valant lawyers help provide solutions.

Here are some examples of what our finance lawyers do to assist their clients:

  • Advise on debt and equity financing
  • Negotiate investment agreements
  • Advise on federal and state securities laws compliance
