Cohan PLLC provides strategic counseling to startups and their investors to solve legal and business problems across a number of different industries — internet and digital media, consumer products, software, and business services.

Cohan PLLC works with founders with an idea (who are typically pre-incorporation) to established later-stage businesses. We initially focus on setting up a corporate structure that enables fast and flexible growth, and a solid legal basis for future financings and liquidity events. In addition to working shoulder to shoulder with founders on formation, Cohan PLLC helps businesses find funding and complete financings and acquisitions.

As these companies mature, Cohan PLLC acts as “outside general counsel,” helping companies with a variety of legal matters, including: corporate governance, employment, equity incentives, intellectual property, and licensing.

Cohan PLLC also represents a variety of investors in financing transactions, from angel rounds to growth equity investments.

Our Approach. With startups, it’s a given that roles are fluid and team members step up to perform a variety of tasks. That’s our way, too. We become extensions of management teams and serve as trusted business advisers, not just outside general counsel. We internalize your vision and work with you to set up the next stage of growth.
