Emerging Companies

Arnall Golden Gregory’s Emerging Companies Practice Group represents entrepreneurial and emerging growth companies and the investors that finance them.  We work with these companies as members of their team by providing expertise and experience to support their growth and success.

We work with companies and entrepreneurs in a mix of industries including technology, information technology, social networking, telecommunications, pharma/biotech, medical devices, healthcare, manufacturing and alternative energy.  We help companies and entrepreneurs with all of their business needs, including determining the best corporate and tax structure; raising capital from angel, venture capital and other investors; private equity and debt financing; public offering planning; developing and protecting intellectual property (patents, trademarks and copyrights) and other assets; privacy issue counseling; negotiating and implementing commercial contracts and licenses; mergers and acquisitions; executive compensation and benefits; and employment matters.  We also represent investors and entities desiring to acquire emerging growth companies through strategic, institutional, joint venture or licensing transactions and with their venture organization and fund raising activities.

We helped found the Southeast's oldest venture capital trade association and maintain an active role and sponsorships with the regional venture and entrepreneurial communities, including ATDC, Flashpoint, StartUp Chicks, InVenture, SEMDA, GeorgiaBIO and GT:IPS. We have decades of experience working with both growing companies and their funding sources and apply that experience to help our clients anticipate and implement strategies best suited to their needs.
