Venture capital

We specialize in advising venture capital investors in relations with private, public (Polish Development Fund), and international investors (EIF, EBRD). We work on investments at all phases of enterprise growth, from startups at the seed capital stage, to early growth and investments in large companies.

We stand out for our huge experience in new technologies and innovative products.

Our team has broad experience working on complicated transactions involving entities from the sector of new technologies as well as innovative products, services and processes. We know how these sectors operate, we analyze market trends and challenges, enabling us to deliver clients not only legal support, but also knowledge helping them reach sound business decisions.

We have a strong team ensuring support for transactions at a high and repeatable level.

Complex transactions require the involvement of an experienced team of lawyers who can ensure repeatable and top-quality support for transactions. On every project we offer the support of advisers fluently operating across all relevant areas of law.

We provide comprehensive legal support for investments by venture capital funds.

We work on transactions for raising capital at all phases of growth of private companies, supporting venture capital funds on legal issues connected with structuring of the investment and the form of funding, as well as in relations between investors and the entities seeking funding.

We conduct domestic and international transactions.

Thanks to cooperation with colleagues in Eversheds Sutherland we can support clients not only in Poland, but also in Asia, the Middle East, the United States, and across Europe. We are particularly active in Central & Eastern Europe, the Baltic states and Scandinavia.
