Technology & Start-Up Companies

Start up companies have focused needs. They face all the legal issues of established companies, plus more, but with less infrastructure and resources. Moreover, any litigation is potentially high stakes for start-ups, and it must be dealt with quickly and decisively. Our experience includes:

  • Guided the board of a start-up company providing an internet platform for electronic medical records through shareholder disputes, including termination of founding shareholder’s role as CEO.
  • Successfully defended start-up company developing mobile banking and cell phone payment technology in a number of actions seeking to prevent shareholders from manipulating restricted trading shares.
  • Represented a start-up social media company in dispute with technology service provider and successfully negotiated resolution without litigation.
  • Successfully defended start-up engineering company in patent dispute with a founding partner. Brought in three months before trial, our investigators uncovered devastating evidence that ended the matter favorably and promptly.
  • Represented start-up consumer products company in negotiating the termination of an acquisition agreement.
