Helping businesses move onward and upward

When businesses are raising capital for business growth, proceeding without legal representation can result in dire and unexpected consequences. That is why businesses often see better long-term results when they retain experienced legal counsel to help them structure sound investment deals.

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s corporate finance and capital funding lawyers have the skills and expertise to guide businesses through the laws and regulations that govern private investments. Whether for startups or more mature businesses seeking investment capital, our corporate attorneys work closely with our clients to explore viable private financing options and to arrange deals that will best serve their business needs and objectives.

Our experience in corporate finance and raising capital

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s corporate finance team has helped businesses in a myriad of industries obtain funding to propel them forward. We help clients get the capital they need to meet their business objectives while mitigating risk. Our law firm has worked with clients to raise millions of dollars from private debt and equity investors while navigating a complicated maze of federal and state securities laws.

Many business owners rely on us to help them fine-tune their investment structure and vet their approach. Other clients send us a signed term sheet and simply request that we paper the deal. Sometimes, company founders are overwhelmed by the whole investment process and ask us to walk them through the entire process from start to finish.

What we do

  • Advise clients on compliance with federal and state investment and securities laws including Regulation D (Rules 504, 505, and 506) and blue sky laws
  • Explore and evaluate private financing options and investment structures
  • Structure and negotiate financing deals

  • Advise clients on venture capital funding and strategic partner investments
  • Draft private placement memoranda
  • Draft stock purchase agreements, subscription agreements, investor rights agreements, and founders’ agreements
  • Help clients secure bridge, seed, and angel funding
