Privately held companies turn to Bradley for our decades of experience with every stage in the lifecycle of a business. From the appropriate structure of a new entity and advice on capitalization and financing, to a liquidity event or transfer to the next generation of leadership, our years of legal experience provide a comprehensive and integrated approach to legal counsel.

Our attorneys provide customized services for each client. For some, our attorneys regularly serve as outside general counsel or as resources for C-level executives or existing in-house counsel. For others, we act on a transaction-specific basis, which leverages our industry experience and strategic insights on capital markets.

Regardless of the situation, we deliver creative, cutting-edge solutions for business operation, transaction, and succession planning that add significant value, which is one of the reasons why our clients rely on us to coordinate all their legal needs. We also collaborate with the client’s other counsel and professional advisors, such as accountants and investment and insurance advisors.

Among the services we provide to private companies are:

  • Business formation and counseling
  • Venture financing
  • Private equity
  • Corporate governance
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Joint venture formation
  • Tax and incentives
  • Governmental affairs
  • Intellectual property
  • Technology transactions
  • Regulatory (antitrust and consumer/privacy and data security)
  • Litigation
  • Employment (benefits and executive compensation)
  • Real estate

As a testament to our reputation, Chambers USA and The Best Lawyers in America have recognized the lawyers in each of these complementary areas as leaders in their respective practices. Bradley’s interdisciplinary approach and the breadth and depth of our practice allow us to serve as a strategic advisor through each stage of a private company's lifecycle.
