Corporate & Securities

Gunderson Dettmer is the premier law firm in the country focused entirely on providing business law advice and counsel to the emerging growth company marketplace. Our Corporate and Securities practice is structured to represent emerging growth companies through every stage of their lifecycle and to provide ongoing operational counsel as well as transactional services. We develop client service teams with a detailed understanding of each client's business and markets to enable our lawyers to provide cost-effective and relevant legal advice with an unparalleled degree of responsiveness.

We believe we represent more top-tier venture capital and private equity funds in their investment activities than any other law firm in the country. Our focus ensures that our attorneys are at the forefront of developing market trends and provide the most current advice available. Extensive relationships in the global venture capital community make it possible for our attorneys to help craft the financing strategies for our fast-growing companies, including providing targeted referrals to investors and companies alike and bringing together the intellectual and financial capital that fuels our marketplace.

We provide the same exceptional level of service to public company clients. With the experience of scores of transactions representing billions of dollars of market value, we can seamlessly manage the complex transition from private to public enterprise and the compliance with the sweeping changes required by recent legislation and regulation, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We maintain active relationships with all of the top-tier investment banks and routinely serve as underwriters' counsel in connection with initial or follow-on public offerings.
