M&A at Hogan Lovells

Venture Capital and
Emerging Companies

Scroll for more

In 2019, our Venture Capital and Emerging Companies practice continued to build strategic connections among companies, investors, and entrepreneurs, advising on seed and later-stage investments, the formation of venture capital funds, and investments made in connection with simultaneously negotiated commercial transactions.

We also assisted our clients in connection with fundraising, investments, corporate governance, and exit transactions across our regions and industries.

Significant amounts of liquidity remain available in the global venture capital market.  Even with continuing global economic and geopolitical uncertainty, we expect that clean energy and battery technologies, as well as other disruptive technologies within AI, automotive, FinTech, health, and biotech, will continue to be attractive sectors for venture capital investment.
