Private Equity and Venture Capital

Barton has decades of experience representing emerging and later stage companies and the institutions and individuals that invest in them. We have extensive experience with all types and stages of private equity and venture capital transactions. Further, since we represent both portfolio companies and institutions that invest in them, our relationships often have significant value for our clients. Our relationships also keep our attorneys close to the industry pioneers and sources of capital, who frequently play an important role in the development of new products and markets.


Our Private Equity and Venture Capital practice clients benefit from our ability to offer a comprehensive set of skills that are required for dynamic and often fast-growing companies. In addition to our corporate transactions attorneys the practice is supported by our intellectual property, tax, litigation, bankruptcy and employment attorneys.


Barton is an effective and efficient outside general counsel for companies at the venture capital and private equity stage. Barton serves as outside general counsel to equity sponsors’ portfolio companies on a fixed fee basis. We provide an efficient alternative to a large equity sponsor’s usual outside counsel, and yet bring more diverse expertise and greater resources than a small in-house law department.
