New businesses that need money often rely on investors whose focus is loaning money to start-up businesses. Venture capital attorneys help negotiate and document the terms of the investment, including what the investors get for their money, and how the business will be run after the investment. The investors usually want shares in the business and the right to have some input into the company's business strategies. Structuring this kind of deal can be very complicated; venture capital lawyers know what terms are standard and what terms are negotiable. If you are starting a business and need financing, a venture capital lawyer will provide advice about how to attract and negotiate with venture capital investors.
