Entrepreneurs and Start-Ups

Entrepreneurship is a fundamental principle of our economy. It is what helps drive innovation and progress. Some of the largest companies started out with the smallest of ideas. Yet with strategic thinking, motivation, and an ability to identify and leverage the best resources possible, a start-up organization can flourish in even the most competitive of markets. 

Freeborn’s Emerging Industries Team provides technology-related entrepreneurs and start-ups with the support they need to propel them through the early stages of their company and lay the groundwork for continued growth. Our team consists of lawyers from across various practice areas who bring to bear a tremendous degree of business and legal knowledge that is vital to the health of a fledgling company.

Our corporate attorneys can serve as outside general counsel, acting as a company’s go-to legal consultant for matters related to such needs as articles of incorporation, licensing and sales contracts, and non-disclosure and non-compete agreements, among others.

Should conflict arise, whether as a defendant or a plaintiff, our skilled litigators are there to help you make your case and vigorously assert your argument. If you are the defendant, our goal is to mitigate your liability and potential damages. If you are a plaintiff, we want to achieve the best possible outcome for your business.

Our Emerging Technologies Industry Team also handles a variety of other legal matters including issues related to protecting and licensing intellectual property, employment disputes and policies, bankruptcy, real estate law, and issues related to private equity and venture capital.
