The members of Ice Miller's Emerging Companies Group have a strong passion for entrepreneurship and a unique understanding of the challenges that face emerging companies. Our motivation is the opportunity to make a contribution to the success of the businesses founded by our entrepreneurial clients and the impact that those businesses have on the local and international economy.
Our full-service practice provides strategic and practical advice to emerging companies in all stages of the life cycle, starting with the development of the initial concept and business plan by the founders, followed by the implementation of a strategy for raising the capital necessary to meet the company's goals and objectives and ultimately developing and executing a successful exit strategy. Our attorneys have deep experience in the legal issues that are critical to the growth and success of an emerging company such as entity formation, capitalization, capital raising, alternative financing, intellectual property rights and protection, growth and exit strategies, corporate governance, tax matters and employee incentive compensation arrangements.
The members of Ice Miller's Emerging Companies Group have a vast array of resources available to our early stage clients, including long-standing relationships with venture capital funds and angel groups, as well as a cost-effective pre-packaged set of formation documents to get a start-up business up and running.
