Corporate Private Equity and Venture Capital

Arnall Golden Gregory’s Corporate Private Equity and Venture Capital Practice represents entities involved in capital raising activities and institutional and corporate venture capital and private equity funds in connection with their fundraising, governance and investment activities.

We assist clients in control and minority investments through debt or equity financings, including negotiations of terms sheets and investment documents, initial and follow-on acquisitions, recapitalizations, exit transactions and initial public offerings.  We assist established and emerging private equity firms in the following activities: venture organization and fundraising activities; fund spin-outs and partner negotiations; portfolio investment negotiation, preparation and closings; due diligence investigations; and fiduciary and conflicts issues avoidance with partners and portfolio investments.

We provide advice to portfolio companies in the technology, real estate and health care industries.  We have the experience and expertise to address various aspects of transactions including tax, executive compensation, ERISA, labor, intellectual property and real estate law.

We have experience in the organization of private funds and the related management companies and represent sponsors and investment managers, lead investors and limited partners.

Our experience and expertise allows us to advise our clients on market terms, including the differences in east coast and west coast U.S. and off-shore terms for venture capital investments and on management fees and performance metrics and other terms for private equity transactions.  We routinely prepare and negotiate necessary documentation, including private placement memoranda, limited and general partnership agreements, and subscription materials.

Our related practice areas allow us to address all aspects of investments and provide guidance for all investment phases.
