Venture Debt & Corporate Finance

For emerging companies, access to financial resources is a key driver of success. For private credit funds, it is imperative to deploy investors’ capital on lucrative investments. When traditional bank loans are unavailable, venture debt can provide a flexible financing option with no dilutive effect for founders while still expanding the business.

At Legal Scale, we have substantial experience on both sides of the venture industry by providing advice to private credit funds and to emerging growth companies. We assist our clients with structuring and documenting a wide range of loan facilities, including asset-backed facilities, term loans (including delayed-draw facilities and acquisition financing loans), receivables financings and working capital facilities. We work on complicated structures involving multi-tier financing, subordination agreements, intercreditor agreements and other arrangements between creditors.

Our credit work offers an attractive complement to venture equity and private equity funding, such as warrants, bridge rounds or larger priced equity rounds. We often provide assistance with both the equity and debt components of a transaction to maximize value for the client – whether that is on the company side or the lender side. We aim to get involved early at the term sheet stage to ensure your transaction is optimally structured from beginning to end.

Biglaw Expertise. Personalized Attention.

Legal Scale works with emerging growth companies and private credit funds to structure, negotiate, document and close out nuanced corporate finance transactions. We have extensive experience working with future-forward companies and lenders that are leaders in the venture industry.

Our founding attorneys began their careers at one of the nation’s most respected large law firms, where they gained extensive experience handling large-scale public and private transactions. But we found that many clients were not receiving the personal attention they deserved. So we broke the mold to create something truly unique. The result is Legal Scale – a boutique law firm dedicated to providing the sophisticated legal analysis of Biglaw coupled with the personal attention and responsiveness that can only be found at a boutique.
