Emerging Growth Companies

Advancing innovation.

Transforming an idea into a successful business is an exciting and potentially rewarding endeavor. Launching a business involves many complex questions and important decisions: What kind of financing is available? How should the business be structured, and how does this impact financing options? What are the tax consequences? Which processes and products should be protected?

Husch Blackwell’s experienced attorneys have the answers to these questions, and more. We help entrepreneurs direct their passion and vision into viable business models, and guide them as they develop their products and services to move them to market. We offer the support necessary to launch and grow startup companies, protect their ideas and realize their business objectives. 

Because of our industry-focused approach, the attorneys on our Startups team are subject matter authorities in growth industries such as technology, life sciences and agribusiness. We’ve helped young businesses avoid the stumbles and missteps that waste time and money. And that can make the difference between a startup that struggles and one that succeeds. 

Our attorneys anticipate needs and create efficient, cost-effective solutions at every stage of development.
