Venture Capital & Private Equity

Rep­re­sent­ing gen­er­al part­ners and investors in ven­ture cap­i­tal and pri­vate equi­ty invest­ment funds is one of the cor­ner­stones of our prac­tice. Our lawyers cov­er the entire range of ven­ture cap­i­tal and pri­vate equi­ty mat­ters including:

  • fund for­ma­tion and cap­i­tal rais­ings through pri­vate placements
  • dai­ly man­age­ment and (reg­u­la­to­ry) compliance
  • invest­ment activities
  • exits of port­fo­lio companies

As we reg­u­lar­ly work for both fund spon­sors and lim­it­ed part­ners, Cresco is very well posi­tioned to pro­vide unbi­ased advice on a num­ber of strate­gic issues, such as:

  • how to struc­ture the fund for pur­pos­es of effi­cient fundraising
  • how to struc­ture and rec­on­cile the diverg­ing demands and require­ments of lim­it­ed part­ners, gen­er­al part­ners and invest­ment professionals
  • how to struc­ture the com­pen­sa­tion mod­el of invest­ment pro­fes­sion­als to ensure moti­va­tion and retention
