For this first edition of our Start Alliance Breakfast we are happy to welcome Stan Lewandowski, a partner active in the Emerging Growth and Venture Capital industry at the international law firm K&L Gates LLP and based in Palo Alto / Silicon Valley.
Stan’s legal fields of advice include the drafting and negotiating of debt (including, convertible, secured and subordinated), seed and venture capital financings on behalf of U.S. and non-U.S. companies and investors, the structuring and negotiating of strategic alliances, IP licensing and joint venture agreements as well as the structuring of transactions related to the migration of European companies into the U.S., establishing R&D centers, and optimizing cross-border relationships between parent and subsidiary companies.
How to approach migration to the US from the company’s perspective, how to flip the ownership structure when you have foreign and US entity, how to prepare for discussions with potential early stage investors, which mistakes to avoid, etc. This is the kind of topics Stan would be happy to discuss with you in more detail over a nice breakfast. You will also have the possibility to share with us any topics of particular interest upfront.
Don't forget - THIS IS a breakfast, it means besides the promising discussion there will be some croissants and coffee to start the day!
We are very much looking forward to see you - please RSVP if you'd like to attend (limited numer of seats available).
All the best from the Start Alliance Team!
