Venture Capital

Venture capital is a critical resource in the development of emerging growth companies, and our firm is uniquely positioned at the intersection of capital and ideas. We consistently close more venture financing transactions per year than any other Southeast-based law firm, which enables us to leverage not only our market intelligence but also our dealflow in order to create connections between investors and companies. As a result of this deep relationship with both entrepreneurs and the investors that invest in them, we can both assist companies raising funding as well as investors seeking opportunities.

Our constant presence in the venture marketplace enables us to add value for our company-side clients by leveraging our visibility and experience with the fundraising process. We have daily interactions with venture capitalists, angel investors, term sheets, financing documents and the process of closing a venture deal. On the investor-side, we continue to grow our representation of venture capital and angel funds throughout the Southeast in their investment activities, and we are actively involved in advising our investor clients on the legal matters surrounding the formation and management of their investment entities.


Who We've Worked With


Scott was a critical part of our ability to work through the significant dynamics and personalities and we relied on him extensively. Thank you again, we appreciate the service provided by Scott and your firm. Frequently, it was above and beyond.

Tom Finegan Chairman, FoodLogiQ LLC

We would have never accomplished what we did without Scott's talent and heroics over the past year. He is an outstanding partner who provides brilliant client service. We are honored and blessed to have him on our team.

I truly felt like Robb was an employee of Amend Surgical and that he had the same passion for closing the deal as I did. This deal would have fallen apart without Robb's expertise and willingness to do whatever was necessary to get us to close.

Robby Lane CEO, Amend Surgical

As a startup going through a recapitalization and transition, Jeremy did a great job of explaining the process and executing it. He was a great thought partner throughout the process, and ensured all the boxes got checked. 

Sean Fitzgerald CEO, Savii, Inc.

I love Hutchison beyond all reasonable limits of plausibility. Sometimes, I feel like I'm on the receiving end of some sort of sociological experiment to push the boundaries of human-to-law firm affection.

Aleksander Levental CEO, Feathr

Nice job, responsive, helpful, on budget. 

Dave Kirkpatrick Managing Director, SJF Ventures

I have always enjoyed working with Justyn and find him to be a thoughtful and intelligent attorney who consistently provides valuable insight and legal advice.

Stephen Mangano Member, GBL Investments

As a company that has grown over the last seven years from a penurious startup barely able to cover its bills into a successful business bringing outside capital into North Carolina, what we have most appreciated about working with Hutchison is its flexibility. That, and how much we like the people. 

Stephen Fraser Co-founder, Spoonflower
