North Carolina's Law Firm for Technology-Based Emerging Growth Companies

Daniels & Daniels, P.A. 

Since it was formed in 1982 Daniels & Daniels, P.A. has focused on serving the needs of growth-oriented technology-based entreprenurial businesses from the start-up phase through the exit stage. Its services have not only included documentation of the various transactions along the way, but, more importantly, providing strategic legal advice to the entrepreneurs as they have faced each stage of the evolution of the company.

About

The firm's practice includes such areas as biotechnology law, health care, computer and internet law, privacy, protection of intellectual property rights, copyrights, patent and trademark licensing, technology transfer, telecommunications, corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, capital formation--including venture capital, private offerings and crowd funding, corporate finance, securities, domestic and international taxation, international expansion of U.S. businesses,  employee benefits, executive compensation, and government regulation.

We are not a large law firm but we are experienced.   We have handled small transactions involving the first few thousand dollars a company might raise to transactions involving hundreds of millions of dollars. Collectively, the transactions we have handled are valued at several billion dollars.  We have represented founders and entrepreneurial companies, and we have also represented investors and venture funds.  While most of our clients are in the Research Triangle Area of North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill) we have clients from areas throughout the United States and in a number of foreign countries.  

 
Different Service Model

We have aggressively restructured our service model to take advantage of cloud-computing and virtual technology to reduce our cost of operations and hence also reduce our fee structure.  In this same vein, we have reduced our real estate presence and focused  more on delivery of services directly to clients on their premises or wherever the client needs to be, rather than on a model where the client must come to the attorney.   

Different Billing Arrangements

We offer our services in a variety of ways depending on the needs of the clients and factual circumstances, including traditional hourly billing, fixed fee formats, deferral arrangements and equity participation in lieu of fees.

Different Counsel Services

For companies that need someone to serve in the role of General Counsel but are not large enough to afford to fill this position on a full-time basis, we also offer part-time General Counsel services on a fixed fee basis. 

 

Similarly, in circumstances where the clients have needs for legal expertise outside of the areas where we have our strengths, we often serve the role of managing such outside legal services on behalf of our client, much as if we were serving as in-house counsel.
