How long does it take to close a capital raise?

It depends on the complexity of the transaction and how well we know the client. The most straightforward matters can be completed in 2-3 weeks. If there are other parties, negotiation can also determine the timeline. There may also be regulatory requirements, such as filings with federal and state regulators. The most important part of our approach is working with our clients to map out a timeline and strategy.

What are the typical documents you prepare?

It depends on the transaction and the type of capital you are raising. However, we typically handle the most common agreements in a fund raising. For example, in a Series A financing, we will help negotiate the Articles of Incorporation, Purchase Agreement, and ancillary agreements such as Investor Rights Agreement, Voting Agreement and Right of First Refusal and Co-Sale Agreement.

My investor wants to use form documents from the National Venture Capital Association. Are you familiar with those?

We are extremely familiar with these and other form agreements and regularly counsel clients on them.
