Croke Fairchild attorneys have played key roles in some of the largest exits in Chicago’s recent history. We’re built for entrepreneurs because we are entrepreneurs.

We represent venture funds and venture-backed companies in Silicon Valley, Chicago, Texas, New York and other venture hot spots. Our venture matters include:

  • Financing rounds including seed financing
  • Investments
  • Startup representation and formation
  • Reorganizations and recapitalizations
  • Portfolio company advising

We are also proud to represent founders. We understand the founder mentality because as founders we have it, too. Founders have specific needs, and we are proud to be the strategic counselors and partners to founders of early-stage companies, supporting them through exits and into the next stages of their innovation journeys. Our partners have counseled founders through some of the largest exits in recent years – and continue to work with them to this day. These services include:

  • Outside General Counsel
  • Family office formation and structuring
  • Direct investments
  • Strategic planning
  • Family foundations
