STARTUPS

Forming your company correctly creates a path for future success. 

Dixon Law will make forming your company simple and straightforward. While anyone can start a company, not everyone can tell you the "why" of what you're doing, what you should ignore, and what to worry about. Only through seeing the ups and downs of many startups and the successes and failures that play out over the years can a legal advisor provide you with the insights you need to manage risks while ensuring you don't get caught off guard. Dixon Law will use its experience and in-depth knowledge of industry-specific priorities and participants to set you on the right path from day one. Have access to thoughtful legal structuring while we help manage the contractual, corporate governance, and other legal challenges you face daily.

Passionate founders and visionary investors can create remarkable things together; a well-structured financing transaction can ensure the relationship gets off on the right foot.

A financing transaction is a critical opportunity to establish the ground rules among founders and investors. From economic preferences to voting provisions, governance rights, and board composition, the many decisions made during any financing transaction will have long-lasting impacts on the founders, the investors, and the company's overall path to success. Whether you are a first-time founder, a serial entrepreneur, or an institutional investor, Dixon Law can provide thoughtful advice and guidance tailored to your specific goals and priorities.

MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS

Selling a company is high pressure and high stakes, for both sellers and buyers, but it doesn't have to be painful.

Selling your company can be a dream or a nightmare. Buying a company can leave you with more (or less) than you bargained for in the beginning. By engaging early in the sale process, identifying risks, thoughtfully structuring the transaction, setting expectations, and improving coordination between buyers and sellers, Dixon Law can enhance the experience of going through an M&A transaction and increase the chances that it concludes with a successful closing. The sale of a business is a lot of work, but Dixon Law offers sophisticated and efficient legal guidance to help you get through every step of the process.
