Our Firm’s Partnership Growth Cycle

Our attorneys at Rosenberg Fortuna & Laitman, LLP can help you build your business from the ground up. Our firm can also provide professional and capable guidance to existing firms seeking focused assistance. No matter the industry, complexity, or maturity of your company, we can serve as your partners and work to help you achieve your goals in each of these stages.

Starting Out

When you only have an idea or a loose collection of assets, you will need to select the appropriate business entity and formally structure your company. We can assist in the entity selection process and ensure that you choose a structure that is consistent with your objectives.

We will then guide you through each step of the entity formation process and file all appropriate documentation with the state. Our team can also assist you with founder agreements that govern your firm’s leadership and define each partner’s obligations to the firm.

Creating and Protecting

Intellectual property is what allows many businesses to compete in crowded industries. Unique products or services can also allow you to fill unserved niches. We can help you refine and protect your new firm’s intellectual property.

We can also assist with licensing of any required components and outsource elements that your firm will not directly handle.

Building a Team

You will need employees, contractors, and vendors to handle your day-to-day operations. We can assist in the sourcing, vetting, and hiring of your workforce and advise on appropriate levels of compensation and the verbiage of employment agreements.

Your company will also need commercial real estate for offices and production facilities. Our team can assist you in managing and closing complex commercial real estate leasing agreements.

Raising Funds

Once your product is ready and your team is in place, you will need funding to make your venture a reality. Our firm has access to a large network of venture capital investors and can assist in connecting you with the appropriate funding sources. We can also assist with private equity and other forms of financing.

Managing the Firm

Companies are subject to intense regulatory and disclosure requirements, especially in certain industries and when they elect to offer public securities. We can provide complete guidance in these areas and keep you appraised of anticipated changes to the regulatory landscape.

We can also assist in matters of corporate governance and ensure that your recordkeeping and corporate decision-making are in compliance with local laws.

Selling and Exiting

When your enterprise has matured, you may seek to collect on your hard work. We can assist business owners in developing and executing a clear and profitable exit plan. We can also assist with complex mergers and acquisitions as well as joint venture agreements.

We can assist your business at every stage of its lifecycle. Contact us online or call (516) 200-3935 today!
