Funding and Investment

Serving Entrepreneurs on the Cape and Islands for Funding and Investment Matters

Helping Businesses Thrive

Every business needs capital to start, grow, and expand. While some entrepreneurs might launch their companies using their own savings, many startups turn to banks, investors, and lending institutions for funding. Weiffenbach Law Offices, P.C. works with businesses at all stages of development to help them obtain the funding they need to succeed and to ensure they are legally compliant. Drawing upon over 30 years of experience in corporate and finance law, Attorney Paul Weiffenbach puts his decades of acquired knowledge to work for the benefit of entrepreneurs on Cape Cod and the surrounding region.

Charting a Course for Success

In order to form and maintain a successful business, it’s essential to secure adequate funding. However, many types of corporate financing are subject to both state and federal laws and regulations. It’s critical to understand which laws apply to your business to avoid incurring liability — and civil or criminal penalties. Having experienced counsel to assist you with navigating the nuances associated with corporate funding and investment matters can help you avoid any legal pitfalls that could result in undesirable consequences for you and your business.

Weiffenbach Law Offices helps business owners and entrepreneurs with a wide variety of funding and investment matters, including the following:

  • Bank loans
  • SBA loans
  • Private placements
  • Regulation A and other public offerings
  • Due diligence
  • Crowdfunding
  • General securities issues

Regardless of the source of business funding, it’s crucial to be aware of the state and federal regulations with which you must comply. Whether your investors are friends, family, venture capitalists, or banking institutions, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission impose many requirements concerning raising capital. Attorney Paul Weiffenbach is committed to providing corporate owners, start-ups, and entrepreneurs with the legal advice and guidance they need to avoid any potential risks throughout every phase of their company’s growth so they can succeed in their business endeavors.

Experienced Counsel. Strategic Solutions.

Startups, growing businesses, and emerging companies have many unique legal and financial needs, particularly when it comes to finding the right investors and raising capital. These needs will change as your company evolves. Although the process of seeking funding is often more complicated than it might initially seem, entrepreneurs and business owners have many options that might be available to them. It is essential to carefully consider the best avenue to pursue for the longevity of your business.

Funding can potentially come from individuals, angel investors, crowdfunding platforms, business loans, venture capitalists, and various other sources of investors. However, financing a business is a complex matter that requires a skillful strategy. Once a comprehensive business financing plan is in place — and the amount of funding that must be raised has been determined — potential investors must be identified, screened, and vetted.

It's essential to understand that investors must be chosen wisely. Whether your goal is to conduct business locally, nationally, or internationally, an investor is much more than the funding they provide — they play a critical role in the growth and development of your business. In addition, most investors will also take an ownership interest in a company in exchange for providing the capital. Selecting the wrong investors can inhibit financial gains, adversely impact the growth of your company, and negatively affect the reputation of your brand.
