STARTUPS, GROWTH & INNOVATION
INNOVATIVE CORPORATE COUNSEL
O&A’s lawyers have big firm experience and expertise, but not big firm prices. Together we have worked as a team to develop better systems, forms, and training for our lawyers to handle everything from startup formations to financing to mergers and acquisitions.
Startups & Emerging Growth
O&A represents entrepreneurs from pre-incorporation through financing and exits. O&A represents companies on their venture financing deals for angel, Series Seed, Series A, Series B and above rounds.
Angel and Venture Financing
O&A represents angel and venture capital investors on early stage, Series A, B, C and up investments.
Mergers & Acquisitions
O&A represents both companies on the sell side and on the buy side. Founder and Senior Attorney, Dan Offner, of O&A has represented serial acquirers for years.
The federal and state regulatory requirements imposed on private companies seeking to raise capital are complex and constantly evolving, requiring experienced and responsive securities counsel to navigate a successful transaction. Our attorneys have the skills and experience to make sure that any equity or debt offering takes place in the way that is best for a client’s overall capital structure and compliant with federal and state securities laws.
commercial counsel at scale
All of our senior attorneys have experience at both law firms and as in house counsel, so we understand the need to strike a balance between effective, but efficient business minded legal advice. We take the time to understand your business and can easily scale up our service team, so you can rely upon us as your on-call legal department. We are also able to easily scale up outside commercial counsel services for emerging growth companies so they don’t have to increase their head count.
O&A lawyers handle all kinds of technology and software licensing agreements. We regularly negotiate, draft and close SaaS (Software as a Service) agreements, App development and App distribution agreements.
O&A’s founder has been representing interactive entertainment developers and publishers for over twenty years. Today, the firm works on interactive entertainment transactional matters for Ubisoft, Virtuos, and Alcon Interactive.
O&A’s founder was the general counsel of Oculus VR from before its Series A through its exit to Facebook. Today, the firm represents Oculus, Spaces, VRsenal and VR companies that are pioneering this new industry.
Content & Right of Publicity Licensing
Having our roots in representing the Teenage Mutant Turtles in the 1990s, today we represent the Oatmeal and Exploding Kittens as well as new social media companies such as Digital Media Management.
Privacy & Data Security
If you are a technology, interactive entertainment, VR or content company today and you are going to interact with end users or business partners through the web or your mobile app, O&A knows that you will need help and advice on privacy and data security issues. Dave Philip is our Of Counsel, whose background with AOL and Sidecar is a tremendous resource in this area for our clients.
