Startup and
Venture Capital

We provide legal and tax assistance to innovative start-ups and scale-ups, venture capital funds and private investors interested in new technologies.


Startup and emerging growth companies

Tech Legal Partners understands the unique legal and strategic business needs of startup and emerging growth companies and the entrepreneurs behind them. We have represented hundreds of startup and emerging growth companies across a broad range of industries and have adopted best practices uniquely suited to meet those needs. Our interdisciplinary team-based approach to client leverages the experience of our attorneys across all the firm’s practice groups to ensure that our clients are provided high-quality legal services covering a wide array of industries and legal disciplines.

Not all of our emerging company clients are technology companies, but most of them are. At Tech Legal Partners, we have a special focus on the technology industry. Technology companies need lawyers who are comfortable with and knowledgeable about technology. Our professionals are experts in the technology sector. Our knowledge of technology helps us to fully understand our clients’ businesses, which is critical to providing top-notch legal service.

Since inventions often constitute the most valuable assets of start-ups, strong intellectual property (IP) rights protecting these inventions can be crucial to their survival. Tech Legal Partners can count on highly experienced IP attorneys that understand the challenges facing start-ups as well as the intricacies and dynamics involved in successfully protecting innovation. This allows us to help our clients identify not only the most appropriate form of IP to protect their innovations, but also the most efficient and effective ways to obtain and manage their IP during the different stages of their company.

When a startup grows, it faces new challenges and needs to learn how to further develop its business and how to internationalize it. To help our emerging growth clients to develop their businesses, our legal team advises on a broad array of matters including capital-raising, corporate finance and securities transactions involving angel investments and seed financings, convertible debt and bridge loans, venture capital financings, strategic partnering and investments, private equity investments.

Moreover – with offices in Milan and New York, dual-qualified attorneys, and a selected network of law firms operating worldwide – we efficiently assist our startup clients defining and implementing the best strategies for transition from a start-up company into a scale-up. For more info on how we help our clients to internationalize their businesses, please navigate our “Business Internationalization” section.

Our startup attorneys are constantly updated about all laws, government resources, funds and other measures aiming to regulate and incentivize the Italian startup ecosystem. Our goal is to guide our clients through all the regulations, incentives and opportunities offered by those measures.


In addition to representing start-up and emerging growth companies, Tech Legal Partners regularly counsels venture capital funds, corporate venture capital groups, pooled investment vehicles and angel, seed and high net worth investors. Our attorneys are well versed in current market trends and prevailing deal terms and work closely with our clients to protect their interests and create sophisticated financing strategies and deal structures.



Clients value law firms that offer investor contacts in addition to extensive experience in venture capital and private investments. Our select client base enables us to leverage our deep network within the entrepreneurial community to provide our clients with the insights and introductions that can accelerate the maturation of their businesses, nationally and internationally.

Our goal is to connect promising clients to appropriate sources of capital in the most efficient way for all stakeholders. To this end, before sending introductions, we can help our clients to refine their business strategy and prepare quality investor materials and legal documents suitable for meaningful evaluation.
