Financing round package

What’s included?

Initial kick-off call to discuss the term sheet, general deal structure, key deal variables, strategy and implications for the company, as well as the analytics and potential projections of your cap table

Drafting of the needed agreements (shareholder agreement and investment agreement)

Legal expert session for review, discussions, and adjustments

Negotiation support including basic investor questions and supporting the signing process

E-signature set-up and collection of signatures

Closing including the preparation of all corporate actions to close the round and a closing checklist

What’s subject to additional work?

In particular, for later rounds (from series A and B), more negotiation support is often required. Our legal experts can add great value to negotiations and ensure you’ll get the best out of the deal. As this additional work is sometimes difficult to estimate, negotiations are hourly (with transparent tracking, so you’re always aware of your legal costs).
