Emerging Businesses
OVERVIEW

From its inception, Maynard Cooper has played an active role in assisting its clients with the issues that arise in connection with both the start-up of a new business and the creation of a new line of business. Our firm continues to build on its tradition of providing our clients with comprehensive and timely service in today’s ever-changing and fast paced marketplace. Many emerging businesses face similar issues despite differences in their particular industries, and we regularly counsel our clients as they address these issues. We help companies identify sources of capital and how best to structure the financing transactions. In connection with addressing financing issues, we also help companies determine if they are eligible for federal and state tax subsidies and incentives. We also assist with various employment related issues including designing and implementing executive compensation plans and other employee benefit arrangements.

We are often called upon to help a company structure its contractual relationships and other arrangements with third parties. In addition, technology is becoming a critical component of many businesses’ success, and we take an active role in counseling our clients on how to best manage the wide variety of technology issues. As companies mature, their needs also change, and we draw on the expertise of lawyers in a wide variety of practice areas to insure that all of our clients’ needs are addressed. It is our goal to be an active participant with our clients in achieving success at every phase of the company’s development.
