Startups play an important role in developing next-generation ideas on numerous fronts, from agribusiness and biotech to electronics and lifesaving medical inventions. Through our “incubator to exit” services, Armstrong Teasdale’s Emerging Companies practice area guides startup companies over legal hurdles and allows them to stay focused on the ideas and solutions they are most passionate about. 

Our team of lawyers includes former business owners and entrepreneurs, as well as individuals with technical skills in a wide range of fields. Their varied experience, interests and knowledge create a multidisciplinary approach that helps startup companies protect their investment and use their resources efficiently.

While ideas and enthusiasm can spur a business, managing legal issues is key to growth. This includes:

  • Business organization
  • Raising capital and securing financing
  • Employment and compensation issues
  • Contracts
  • Intellectual property, technology and security

Our Emerging Companies practice area includes lawyers with experience in these and other areas. Taking a collaborative approach, we work with attorneys across practice areas to offer the most effective counsel customized to each client’s unique situation, whether they need assistance with entity formation; founder equity and vesting; drafting capital formation and securities documents; entrance into incubator and accelerator programs; noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements; licensing agreements; or registering patents, trademarks and copyrights.

As a business grows and prospers, new issues will arise relating to venture capital and loans, estate and succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, and expansion and divestiture, among others. No matter the stage or industry of a company, our experienced team of professionals will work cooperatively with executives and advisers to develop a cost-appropriate, holistic solution.
