  • “I have worked closely with Stradling on several financing deals over the past 7 years. I have found them to be knowledgeable, fair, responsive and thoughtful. They have been able and willing to address complex problems and to propose straightforward and workable answers. The attorneys at SYCR have successfully negotiated several difficult transactions, including successfully handling protracted negotiations among founders, senior executives, universities and several venture capital funds. The SYCR advisory role with respect to the technology and financial terms were instrumental in the success of the deals.”

  • "Stradling has been an essential ingredient to our long-term success: they provided critical advice when we set-up our company, provided essential advice as we have been growing our enterprise and been a great resource in introducing us to investors and negotiating financing documents on behalf of the Company. In connection with technology transactions, we have consistently received expert advice from experienced counselors who understand our business needs and organizational challenges.

  • "I have worked with Stradling for several years and found exceptionally talented lawyers and terrific business partners. Experts in corporate law, from launch to IPO and beyond, they've helped our professors, graduate students and college students envision, launch and develop their ideas into thriving businesses. Their lawyers' understanding of business challenges of emerging growth companies, their deep bench of experience including in licensing (especially in a university context) and their ability to explain issues to new entrepreneurs have made them invaluable partners."
