Our Early Stage Practice

Barney & Karamanis, LLP provides comprehensive legal and advisory services to start-ups, early stage and growing companies requiring progressive, efficient and cost effective legal representation of the highest quality. Our attorneys are counselors, strategists and advocates for public and private companies across a wide variety of industries and fields with an emphasis on high technology, biotech, commercial real estate and international matters. We also represent individual entrepreneurs, investors, inventors and engineers, sales representatives and consultants, and senior level executives.

We believe that technology will continue to drive our national and global economies and look forward to partnering with our clients to create the products and services that will help build great companies. We differentiate ourselves by having a deeper understanding of our clients’ technologies, industry environment and business needs than is typically expected of lawyers. Our breadth of expertise, together with our years of experience helping emerging companies throughout their growth cycles enables us to anticipate future opportunities and potential challenges before they arise.

In helping our clients grow their businesses, we draw upon our experience with large corporations as well as our extensive work with innovative entrepreneurs and emerging growth companies. From forming creative start-ups and facilitating seed and venture financing, through mergers and acquisitions and beyond, we are equally adept at representing a two-person start-up, as we are a Fortune 500 company. Using a team approach, we draw upon our broad base of expertise and relationships with select specialists from other firms to provide our clients with high-quality, cost-effective legal advice tailored to their particular needs.

When clients choose Barney & Karamanis, LLP, they receive the highest quality legal services and the opportunity to leverage the experience, information and network our firm has developed from more than two decades of focused work with biotech and international companies worldwide.
