The venture capital investment field is a rapidly changing environment in which investors and entrepreneurs share the need for experienced, in-depth guidance on the legal and the financial landscapes.
Pearl Cohen’s Investment and Venture Capital group draws on our strong track record and widespread network of venture, angel and corporate investors to connect clients to capital. With one of the most globally integrated funds practices in Israel and with experienced teams in Tel Aviv, Haifa, New York, Boston and London, our dedicated funds specialists offer invaluable strategic legal advice to clients at every step of the fund lifecycle, both from the perspective of the incorporation of the fund and the perspective of the potential investor in the fund. Accordingly, our team can provide guidance from the initial steps of the fund’s incorporation and the raising of its capital, through the ongoing investments in portfolio companies and ending on the closing of the fund and the opening of its successor fund.
We act for angel investors, venture capitalists and private equity firms on a full range of financing transactions – from pre-seed to later-stage funding transactions, from equity-based deals through secured debt structured investments. Our comprehensive representation embeds in-depth analysis of the various aspects relevant to each financing transaction, tapping into our relevant practices such as intellectual property and licensing when necessary.
Working closely with our Corporate practice, we provide a full service to clients, including incorporation, licensing and other commercial transactions, taxation, employment and incentive plans. Our experienced corporate attorneys enable us to focus on solutions and deal closings through innovative approaches, which are often a direct result of insights from our cross-border and global transactional experience
