Capital raising lawyer

DELCADE, capital raising lawyer for start-ups

DELCADE’s lawyers, experts in corporate law, have a perfect command of the mechanisms and processes of raising capital for various sectors of activity.

DELCADE’s global assistance includes capital investment operations (raising capital for an investment fund).

Our firm advises companies as well as trustees and investors and has a full understanding of the legal and tax issues for each of the parties involved.

Our firm’s multidisciplinary team guides the entrepreneur or the investor through these complex transactions in order to secure them.

Beyond the capital raising operations, DELCADE also provides post-investment monitoring: Our experts can provide financing assistance, and assist with the management of crisis situations and associated risks.

DELCADE has established numerous partnerships with business incubators and entrepreneur networks, assisting both start-ups and companies at a more advanced stage (notably providing assistance in capital development).

Assessment of the situation and restructuring

We propose to draft a strategy in line with your financing needs; identifying the securities to be issued (equity warrants, stock purchase warrants, bonds, single shares, preference shares, etc.); validating the most appropriate company structure; and auditing existing contracts and agreements.

DELCADE systematically involves a tax lawyer in its operations to prepare for the arrival of investors and in anticipation for the company’s growth. We identify the tax issues related to the planned transactions and analyse the opportunities for improvement.

Legal structuring of capital raising

Once the investors have been identified, DELCADE is also able to advise and guide corporate directors in their negotiations with investors:

  • By drawing up confidentiality agreements and information memos, we secure the transmission of information to trustees,
  • By providing virtual data rooms for our clients,
  • By reviewing the term sheet sent to founders,

And by analysing the overall investment conditions.

Final negotiations with the investor

Once the term sheet has been concluded and the audits completed, the operation enters the final phase:


  • Corporate decisions on the issuance of securities to be held by the interested parties,
  • Incentive schemes for founding partners or managers (accretion, if any),
  • Shareholder agreements,
  • Legal formalities.


We are regularly involved in international transactions involving negotiating documentation in English.
