Capital Formation

An important element of our business organization practice at the Cleveland offices of Joseph D. Carney & Associates, LLC., is the comprehensive legal advice and litigation services we provide to corporate clients, individual investors, advisors and broker dealers. We counsel clients in all aspects of corporate and entrepreneurial financing, including capitalization for business start-up and investment from individuals, family members, "angel investors," private equity, venture capital groups, and others.

Our capital formation attorneys assist clients in Ohio and across the United States to access private and institutional equity and debt capital, and provide ongoing guidance on a broad range of issues encountered during the capitalization process:

  • Public and private issuance of securities and their reporting obligations
  • Securities transactions, public and private placement of equity and debt, state and federal regulatory compliance
  • Establishment of investment and hedge funds and other investment models
  • Drafting, structuring, review, and implementation of transactional agreements including stock and asset purchase agreements, shareholder agreements, and placement and underwriting agreements
  • Dispute Resolution, mediation, and litigation services
  • Investment management and administration agreements
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Venture capital
  • Initial public offerings (IPO)
  • Initial stockholder/ investor organization
  • Capital and growth strategies
  • Capital, strategic, and business plan development
  • Friend and family offerings
  • Early stage and seed capital

Our legal team has advised corporate and private clients for over 40 years on proper capitalization methods that are timely, legally sound, and pro-active. Properly completed, these plans aid in the identification and avoidance of potential disputes, including those related to regulatory compliance.
