VCL Law LLP

Our law firm specializes in domestic and cross-border corporate, securities, tax and intellectual property transactions. We represent emerging companies, public companies, investors and underwriters in an ever-changing business environment and capital markets. With industry-leading expertise, international backgrounds and global resources, we are uniquely positioned to be our clients’ long-term strategic advisors in resolving their complex legal challenges and achieving their business goals.

Our Practices

Capital Markets

We have substantial experience in leading issuers, underwriters and selling stockholders through US IPO and listing process. We advise companies both in the US and internationally on their US IPOs, as well as continuing to represent them in their SEC reporting and US market transactions. We also have experience assisting in cross-border, multi-listed IPOs and US registrants’ listings overseas. For foreign companies seeking their first access to the US capital markets, we offer them comprehensive legal advice on US securities laws and the regulatory framework for the US securities industry, helping them set foot into the US capital markets.


Public Company Services

We provide comprehensive corporate and securities law legal services to our public company clients. We advise them on SEC and stock exchange reporting and disclosure requirements, compliance with corporate governance statutes, responsibilities of management and board of directors, and others. We assist public companies with financing and acquisition activities, representing them in public offerings, PIPE transactions, debt and equity financings, going private transactions and mergers and acquisitions.


Venture Capital & Emerging Companies

We provide value-added legal services to entrepreneurial startups and venture capital backed emerging companies through their full business life cycle, from initial formation until exit through mergers and acquisitions or transitions into public companies. We advise our startup clients on entity formation, fundraising, capitalization structure, corporate governance, employment issues, intellectual property rights and other areas important to their success. We also represent venture capital firms and other institutional investors in making investments into emerging growth companies.


Mergers and Acquisitions

We represent various categories of participants in merger and acquisition transactions, including buyers, sellers, major stakeholders, financial advisors, management and others. We offer strategic counseling to our clients and help them customize and execute their M&A strategies. Our strategic advice, combined with our transactional expertise, has enabled us to serve as a long-term and trusted advisor to our clients in connection with their merger and acquisition activities.

Corporate Tax

We provide tax-related services in an array of corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and spin-offs. We incorporate tax considerations into our corporate advice, taking into account business and non-tax legal issues, to devise the most effective structures to achieve clients’ goals. A significant aspect of our tax work involves handling cross-border matters, both in-bound and out-bound. We routinely counsel domestic clients on US tax aspects of their overseas expansions and foreign clients on tax issues relating to their US acquisitions and operations.

IP and Technology Transactions

Our intellectual property and technology transaction practice covers across a wide range of intellectual property transaction structures, territories, development stages and technologies, including exclusive license of early stage technologies from research institutions, co-development of products and profit sharing arrangements, joint-venture collaborations in conjunction with equity or debt investments, exclusive marketing rights of commercial stage products, and cross-border licensing and co-development.
