Honigman’s Emerging Companies Group focuses on helping entrepreneurs and emerging companies navigate all legal issues involved in forming, developing, financing, and continuing to grow their ventures. 

Honigman appreciates that each startup faces a unique set of challenges, and that no two companies are alike. The Emerging Companies Group provides each client with exceptional legal services at competitive cost structures that are specifically tailored for each stage of the company’s development including:


The formation stage is critical to the success of any company — especially companies desiring VC financing. With an eye towards the future, we work with founders to protect a company’s critical assets and founders’ equity.


Once a firm foundation is established, our team serves as the company’s outside general counsel and is equipped to address the diverse opportunities that accompany these vital and exciting stages of the company’s growth.


From an initial seed round financing to an IPO, we apply our know-how from representing VCs to help the company protect what it’s built and to position the company to achieve its goals. We do all of this with a focus on providing value for the company.

Continued Growth

During each stage of the company’s growth, our team of attorneys will advise on a host of legal practice areas and business needs. We work with our clients as they evolve to help position them to meet their desired goals — including an eventual exit.

Honigman has over 100 VC-backed clients throughout the country and has represented more than $5 billion in financing transactions since 2010.

The Emerging Companies Group is comprised of attorneys from the firm's Corporate, Venture Capital, Technology Transactions, Intellectual Property, Employment, Employee Benefits, Securities and Corporate Governance, Tax, Litigation, Insurance, and Real Estate departments.
