Venture Capital & Start Ups

Supporting growth

A good contract is important for the success of venture capital investments. But what is really key is passion, innovative power, and creativity of a company's founders.

We offer more than just good contracts. We understand what really matters and focus squarely on ensuring that both investors and start-ups benefit optimally from the enormous opportunities provided by VC. As a solution provider, we combine extensive VC expertise and deep understanding of the legal landscape with a clear focus on client goals. Regardless of whether we are representing company founders or investors, our approach to VC investments is collaborative, leaving behind only fertile ground after negotiations, not scorched earth.

We advise institutional VC funds, strategic investors, business angels, and start-ups on all types of financing from founding to exit, including capital increases, convertible loans, and SAFEs. Structuring investment funds is another core competence. We assist clients in many different areas, particularly in the Internet and blockchain, fintech, e-commerce, biotech, food and beverage, and leisure and entertainment sectors.

Our clients trust us, because in addition to drafting good contracts, which is undoubtedly important, we offer just so much more.
