Entrepreneurial Spirit

McDonald Carano is known for helping emerging and tech companies to launch, grow and prosper. Our attorneys work closely with every kind of emerging-company client, including entrepreneurs; high-tech and specialized-industry startups; fast-growth enterprises and middle-market companies; Fortune 500 companies involved in cutting-edge commerce and new technologies; and the angel investors, investment banks, venture capital firms and private equity firms that catalyze the development of Nevada’s vibrant commercial landscape. Our collective and truly extensive experience in representing entrepreneurs throughout Nevada and beyond assures clients that we understand their challenges and have likely been there before.

Our Emerging Industries and Organizations Group looks beyond present circumstances to better plan for the future. We constantly analyze and assess the long-term strategic consequences of our advice, particularly when working with clients to manage their growth.
