Healthcare: Venture, Start-Ups, and Growth

Our attorneys have a long history of advising healthcare entrepreneurs in all aspects of their initial development, growth, and financing of a new venture. We also represent venture and growth investors and other sources of start-up capital in their transactions with entrepreneurs.

Venable attorneys are highly experienced in helping start-up clients achieve their goals. We view our clients in the early-stage healthcare space as partners and seek to build long-lasting professional relationships to allow the sharing of time and resources and to provide practical, business-savvy, cost-efficient advice. Our attorneys offer clients a single point of contact to make the representation as efficient as possible and allow for one-on-one engagement and counseling. Often quick, timely advice helps conserve time and money, which is so precious to start-ups; rendering prompt advice requires partner-level skills and knowledge of the company and business, and Venable has those bases covered. We prioritize and proactively manage the need for legal advice and support in a highly regulated industry.

Whether our clients are raising capital, hiring and nurturing talent, dealing with regulatory issues or litigation, building strong patent and trademark portfolios, or licensing technologies, we are here to help. Calling upon the talents of attorneys across the firm, we also assist our clients in negotiating important contracts, structuring the business to optimize tax considerations, or growing by acquisition or international expansion. We are trusted outside general counsel, managing all issues that may arise.

Our regulatory experience is key. Companies that set out to be innovative and disruptive in healthcare need a law firm with deep regulatory knowledge to help guide their success. We have a nationally recognized regulatory practice, with attorneys focusing on the healthcare, fintech, privacy and cybersecurity, and digital media sectors. Our goal is not just to get a company started, but to work closely with the company, leveraging our areas of deep industry knowledge to help it grow and thrive.
