Emerging Businesses

Kennyhertz Perry’s depth of experience working with multiple startups and emerging companies, as well as its attorneys’ own success as entrepreneurs, gives the firm a valuable perspective that allows us to counsel startups and companies in emerging industries on a range of issues that are relevant to their immediate and future business needs.

Our firm focuses its experience on proactively helping clients achieve their business goals while being mindful of the pitfalls that can inhibit your ability to execute long-term growth strategies. Our attorneys have a full understanding of the complex legal and business issues that clients face as they pursue these business goals.

As former in-house lawyers, as well as former government regulatory attorneys, our firm has the first-hand experience not only with growing successful businesses but also with the challenges clients face as they navigate day-to-day legal issues facing their business.

We partner with clients as they effectively navigate the business life cycle – from initial concept through thriving periods of growth to the sale of a business. Commonly serving in a general counsel role to a client’s business, we are able to advise clients on any number of legal issues, including:

  • Business Formation and Entity Selection
  • Corporate Structure
  • Contract Negotiations
  • Shareholder, Founder, and Operating Agreements
  • Capital raises and startup funding
  • Compensation and employment agreements
  • Non-disclosure and non-completion agreements
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Financial Services
  • Transactional Law
  • Government Enforcement
  • Compliance
  • Litigation

Entrepreneurs and their startups face obstacles and challenges unique to a new business.  As experienced Kansas City Business Lawyers practicing in all areas of what we call startup law, we provide business owners legal counsel at each stage of their startup’s growth.

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand that it can be much more gratifying to spend seed money on your logo, a new website, and creating sales materials in your effort to let the world know about your incredible new company. However, instead of simply focusing on the fun stuff, we recommend that you protect your investment by consulting with an attorney so you know what you and your company need and so you can become aware of the potential liabilities.
