Our client base of entrepreneurs and high-growth companies are avid consumers of capital. As a result, private equity, venture capital and investment funds comprise a critical component of our Corporate & Securities practice. Our experience covers a variety of industries, including (i) technology and SaaS, (ii) manufacturing, (iii) real estate, (iv) medical devices, (v) consumer products, (vi) media, (vii) financial institutions and other investment sectors prominent throughout the United States.
Our attorneys offer in-depth experience in representing both domestic and international funds with formation and compliance matters. We also assist funds with their own capital needs by working with fund sponsors, as well as institutional funds and individual investors by addressing the following:
- Capital allocation
- Vesting schedules and terms
- Ownership structure
- Compensation structure
- Internal governance and procedures
By regularly representing both fund clients and investors, we understand concerns from both sides of a transaction – the importance of deal flow for investors and the importance of access to capital for companies. This broad network and experience enables our attorneys to identify opportunities and make strategic introductions between our clients and potential financing sources, co-investors and/or attractive deals. Our Corporate attorneys also advise on the practical aspects of organizing and operating a fund, while also capturing the pulse of market conditions and identifying the relative bargaining power of all interested parties.
Lifecycle Deal Experience
Through our consistent presence in the marketplace, Munsch Hardt’s business-minded attorneys also frequently serve as outside general counsel on all aspects of our clients' legal, transactional and financing needs, from seed capital to venture capital to mature private equity transactions, including management and other leveraged financings and recapitalizations.
As a full-service firm, we are able to scale with our clients to provide the comprehensive services they require, while still maintaining the flexibility, efficiency and responsiveness they expect to meet their business goals. To that end, we use an interdisciplinary, cross-practice approach to draw upon the resources of the Firm’s attorneys in other practice areas, such as Tax, Employee Benefits, Labor and Employment, Intellectual Property and Real Estate.
