What Sets Us Apart

Our attorneys know how the entrepreneurial mind works. Launching a startup and growing a business takes both passion for your product or service and vision for the future. This passion drives entrepreneurs toward success. But they don’t reach their goals alone. Based on our years of experience and understanding of the startup entrepreneur, Fox recognizes that leaders of emerging growth businesses need lawyers who match their energy, action and passion. Our clients see us as more than just lawyers. They see us as advisers and partners who are as enthusiastic about their ventures as they are.

We understand the need for support at every phase of a company’s development. We know that business innovation never ceases and believe that all of our clients’ questions and concerns are important. We make responsiveness, accessibility and personalized attention a priority. In addition, we listen to and strategize with our clients, keeping in mind their specific situations, including experience level, industry sector and resources. This way, our clients get customized advice in context with their reality.

Clients benefit from our extensive network. With established relationships throughout the angel financing, venture capital, private equity, hedge fund and financial services communities, Fox attorneys are well positioned to provide introductions to investors and business leaders who understand the particular needs of your business and the challenges faced by early stage and emerging companies. Our attorneys lead and are active in regional and national efforts to serve and support startups, including the Angel Capital Association (ACA); Chicago-based Elmspring, a seed stage accelerator dedicated to supporting emerging real estate and housing technologies; Digital Brown, Brown University's global network of alumni in digital technology and media; the New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC); the Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) IMPACT and Phorum conferences; Delaware Crossing Investor Group; the Pittsburgh Venture Capital Association (PVCA) 3 Rivers Venture Fair; the Los Angeles Venture Association (LAVA); and Digital Entertainment Ventures (DEV) Korea, among many others.

We aim to provide efficient service within clients’ financial parameters. We know emerging companies operate on tight budgets. Fox offers an array of complimentary value-added resources to pre-venture funded clients, including data rooms, background research, initial consultations and a blog dedicated specifically to the needs and interests of startups. In addition, we provide cost effective intellectual property services, including IP “mini-audits” and preliminary trademark searches and filings of applications at a cost-effective flat rate. Efficiency, timeliness and real-world resources clients can use – all hallmarks of our Emerging Companies and Venture Capital Practice.
