Message from the Chair
Is there some good news in the venture capital world?
Seasoned venture capital lawyer Brad Schwartz, a partner at Strategic Law Partners, LLP, believes that
"initial venture capital investments appear to be picking up,
and good exits for venture backed companies in the M&A and the IPO markets appear to be increasing, as well."
Our upcoming program, Venture Capital Term Sheets,
will be a great opportunity to learn about current deal terms and important points in venture capital term sheets.
Mr. Schwartz and two other lawyers from his firm, Dan Burnham and Josh Rosenfeld,
will share their experience by way of a mock negotiation of a venture capital term sheet.
The program is scheduled for noon on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at LACBA's offices.
