Guiding Entrepreneurs Through Critical Decisions

For new business owners working with experienced venture financing firms can be daunting. How can businesses get the financing they need while protecting the founders’ stake and other interests such as voting rights, board of directors seats, corporate strategies, and operating budgets?

We evaluate the terms of investment contracts to ensure that the terms are reasonable and clearly define all aspects of the venture financing deal, including:

  • Valuation – Rights and responsibilities of founding and investing parties.
  • Exit Strategy – Methods for ending businesses or realizing the capital gain.
  • Liquidation Preference – Rights and privileges of founders and investors during mergers and acquisitions.
  • Corporate Governance – Voting rights, seats on the board of directors, operations control.

Our skillful San Jose business lawyers can help you navigate the maze of issues related to funding a business in today’s economic environment. We can help you discover a balance between maintaining control of your business and finding the necessary money to fund your idea. Whether you are a high-tech start-up in Silicon Valley or an entrepreneur looking to create an offshore company, you can rely on us to protect your investments.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
