In helping our clients grow their businesses, we draw upon our experience with industry-leading public companies and financial institutions, as well as our extensive work with innovative entrepreneurs and emerging growth companies. Whether forming creative start-ups, facilitating seed and mezzanine financing, handling initial public offerings and mergers and acquisitions, or providing strategic prelitigation counseling and representation in adversarial proceedings, Cooley is as equally adept at representing two-person start-ups as it is Fortune 500 companies.
