Emerging growth and venture capital have played crucial roles in the development of Southern California's diverse economy, and Stradling has been a key industry leader for 40 years.

From the ground up, emerging growth companies must formulate a business plan, assemble the right management team, and secure the funding needed to establish, execute, and expand the business. Stradling is a dependable and resourceful partner each step of the way.

We seek to partner with clients, providing advice through all stages of clients’ development in order to assist entrepreneurs, executives, and directors as nascent emerging growth enterprises ultimately expand into thriving expansive businesses.

Stradling attorneys are intimately familiar with the legal issues faced by entrepreneurs, including:

  • Organizational structure
  • Securities
  • Protection and licensing of intellectual property
  • Employee incentives
  • Employment
  • Compliance
  • Tax matters

Throughout the lifecycles of clients, our firm’s cross-disciplinary, integrated approach provides clients with the flexibility to call upon specialists with both practice experience and industry-specific competencies. As emerging companies grow and expand, Stradling’s additional practices often become invaluable assets, whether our clients seek to partner with other entities, license technology, sell, or undertake an initial public offering.
