Our advisory approach

Our clients appreciate our swift, flexible, pragmatic, and cooperative approach. ...When advising venture capital funds and start-up companies, we combine our full-service approach with industry know-how, entrepreneurial curiosity with a sense for practical solutions, creativity with the drive to execute, problem analysis with result orientation, speed with legal precision, lean structures with operational strength, and digital expertise with experience from the traditional corporate world.

Legal risk analysis

A focus of our Venture Capital Practice is the assessment of the legal requirements and frameworks for new business models. ...Using our custom method of analysis we analyse the business models of different sectors from different perspectives – from the point of view of the founder, of the investor, and of the lawyer. Working with our clients we develop practical measures for avoiding legal hurdles and pitfalls.
Almost all of the venture capital transactions on which Gleiss Lutz acts as an advisor are cross-border in nature. Through our international network of top-class, trusted law firms we can cover all relevant jurisdictions worldwide. ...We consult our clients to ensure that we put together the best international team with respect to the legal task at hand. As an independent law firm, we can address the specific requirements of client and mandate when selecting the local lawyers. We can thereby see to it that the quality of advice remains at a uniformly high level even when crossing national borders. Our tried-and-tested global advisory approach can be summed up as: one face to the client, one engagement letter, one bill.
