Emerging Growth Companies & Mid-Sized Businesses

As a fast-growing company, having an experienced business lawyer to help guide you through the day-to-day of your business is critical. Whether it’s drafting contracts for the various relationships in your growing business, assisting with compliance, training your team on best practices, providing guidance around the pros and cons with a corporate restructuring, or providing insights into raising money for your tech company, there are many ways the team at Meyer Law can assist. We can provide legal counsel on a project-by-project basis; you can choose an emerging growth package, or we act as your outsourced general counsel and provide guidance on a regular basis. Our decades of experience as technology lawyers will be an asset to your business as you scale and grow.

General Counsel

Whether you need recurring support with the day-to-day situations arising while scaling your successful technology company or one-time strategic legal advice to best determine the path forward for your business, we understand that you need reliable legal support for the many issues you’ll face.  From difficult, complex contract negotiations to key strategic partnership to protecting valuable confidential information and intellectual property while minimizing risk, each task is critical to your success and growth. It’s much more cost-effective than to get your legal foundation and protections right early on to avoid making costly mistakes down the line. Our team can act as your outsourced, on-demand general counsel or assist on an ongoing basis with our general counsel packages.

In-House Counsel

Whether you’re the general counsel at the next unicorn tech company with a small team or one of many on an in-house counsel team at a large corporation, we understand there isn’t enough time in the day for your team, given the speed at which the executives generally like to move. The team at Meyer Law is incredibly responsive, moving quickly to drive matters forward, and we have extensive experience working with technology companies.

In addition, the technology lawyers at Meyer Law can appreciate the need to take on a level of risk when growing a company and can provide real-world advice so that our clients can make informed decisions. Our team has negotiated thousands of contracts against and on behalf of some of the largest corporations in the world. We can help your in-house team on a project-by-project basis or on a recurring basis with our in-house counsel packages.
