Start-up & Venture Capital

You are a start-up entrepreneur? We provide advice during initial incorporation and financing of your company. Like an external legal department, we attend to all legal aspects of your growing company according to your requirements.

You are an investment manager or a partner of a venture capital company? We provide you with relevant legal advice for your investment(s) in German technology companies.

In 2011 we helped in the closing of 16 financing rounds with an aggregate volume in excess of EUR 100 million, in ten of which we acted as Company Counsel and in six of which we acted as as Investor Counsel. In the last five years (2007 thru 2011) we closed 71 financing rounds with a total volume of over EUR 500 million, 44 as Company Counsel and 27 as Investor Counsel.

Annually, we issue the VC Deal Term Report. This study analyses deal terms in VC transactions of young German technology companies. To receive a copy of our annual study (VC Deal Terms 2009, 2010, or 2011), please send an email to info@mlawgroup.de.
