Emerging Companies

The Emerging Companies Practice at Latham & Watkins is global in scope, consisting of both transactional and litigation attorneys who are immersed in the legal, business and regulatory issues that affect our clients' enterprises. Whether addressing matters limited to a specific region or with global implications, we provide an international network of experienced attorneys who can handle the spectrum of needs of our clients - from start-ups to multinational conglomerates - and the investment banks and venture capital firms that serve them.

Latham & Watkins' services span the entire growth cycle of a company, from organization and incorporation, through venture and mezzanine and late-stage funding and initial public offerings to sophisticated transactions for Fortune 100 public companies. With a focus on technology, cleantech and life sciences companies, we help set-up optimal legal and capital structures, advise on corporate governance and compliance standards, coordinate employment and employee benefit arrangements, draft, negotiate and advise on domestic and international supply and distribution agreements, material transfer and intellectual property license agreements, as well as cross-border structuring agreements and outsourcing, and where appropriate, arrange introductions to providers of capital.

With a sophisticated perspective and an entrepreneurial spirit, our Emerging Companies group combines expertise in corporate finance, capital markets, venture financing, and mergers and acquisitions with an in-depth understanding of the intellectual property, technology transactions, liability, regulatory and privacy issues facing these companies.
