Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Development

The Innovation and Development Practice came together as a way to provide the kind of all-encompassing legal service entrepreneurial companies and their founders so urgently need. 

How? By merging the particular talents of our individual attorneys with the extraordinary breadth of our firm’s practices. The end result is a ‘whole’ strategy that’s greater than the sum of its parts. A strategy singularly designed to maximize any emerging company’s success.

Structured to serve companies with leading-edge products, Innovation and Development helps nurture innovative organizations at every step of their evolution and development, from pre-formation through a prosperous M&A transaction.

Combining BHGR’s experienced hands-on attention with the firm’s team-oriented culture, the Innovation and Development’s managing attorney builds a legal team around each client and familiarizes each member of that legal team with your company’s unique needs. As those needs grow, you can call upon your team to support strategic business planning efforts.

While this strategy is particularly attractive to companies in the science and technology arenas, our unique approach is fitting for any company with an innovative product and inspired developmental leadership.

  • Founders’ Agreement
