WHAT WE DO

Our singular goal is to deliver the highest caliber of legal service to each and every client.

Private Equity Transactions

 

Our attorneys represent private equity funds, family offices, and high-net worth individuals in their investment in and acquisition of portfolio companies operating across various industries throughout the United States.  Our extensive buy-side experience allows us to efficiently broker deals to closing.

Mergers & Acquisitions

 

Our attorneys represent both buyers and sellers across the country in lower middle market M&A transactions, typically with enterprise values between $5mm and $100mm. 

Capital Raises

 

We routinely represent clients on both sides of private capital raises, working with early-stage venture funds and angel investors, on the investor side, or companies raising capital across their life cycle from first round, start-up capital through institutional and strategic investor rounds. 

Outside General Counsel

 

We often sit as General Counsel for our clients based upon our attorneys' years of experience in both law and business.  In this role, we may advise on entity formation, negotiate and draft contracts, or handle employment matters.

OUR MISSION

 

WORK ETHIC

We love what we do. 

Becoming a key member of our client's management team

enables us to contribute far beyond providing sound legal advice. 

 

We want to work with our clients for years,

helping them grow their businesses, no matter what the industry. 

 

Because we enjoy what we do, you might actually find we are lawyers who you enjoy working with. 

Imagine that, it is possible.

 

Finding lawyers to help you accomplish your business goals rather than put up roadblocks.

TEN

Our lawyers love their families and their communities.

We love that we are fortunate enough to work hard

helping our clients achieve remarkable success,

while still having the ability to give.

When we formed Midtown GC, we did it with a primary goal of enabling the firm

to give ten percent of its revenue to worthy causes.
