Emerging Growth and Venture Capital

The Emerging Growth and Venture Capital practice at K&L Gates represents venture funds, corporate investors, and individuals in connection with their investments in start-up and early stage, emerging growth companies. These engagements have involved venture capital financing, acquisitions and disposals of portfolio companies, recapitalizations, restructurings, and liquidity and realization events, including IPOs.

We also represent many start-up and early stage, emerging growth companies across diverse industries, and work with these companies from formation, through the various stages of their financing activities, and in their strategic joint venturing, acquisitions and disposals, and liquidity transactions. Some of the world’s leading businesses have turned to K&L Gates for assistance and guidance with their most important opportunities and challenges as young companies.

The 2017 Global Corporate and Transactional Highlights Brochure showcases our work in several industries across our five-continent platform.

K&L Gates is consistently recognized as a market leader in venture capital and private equity. Since 2008, Private Equity Analyst has ranked our firm among the most active law firms based on the number of venture capital or private equity funds formed and transactions completed. We completed more than 250 venture capital and private equity transactions and formed or represented investors in nearly 100 venture and private equity funds in 2011.
