How can we help?
Mason Hayes & Curran is dedicated to providing a full range of start up law services to emerging companies. We advise on business formation and structure, corporate governance, intellectual property protection, financing, investment and shareholder matters.
We understand the particular needs and concerns of emerging businesses and their requirement for clear and prompt legal advice. Our 80 partners provide strength-in-depth, commercial rigour and entrepreneurial flair.
We frequently work with start-ups and technology companies, including TriMod Therapeutics, Storyful and Blueface. We worked with Bank of Ireland and Enterprise Ireland on the Bank of Ireland Early Stage Equity Fund as well as the Bank of Ireland Start Up and Emerging Sectors Fund.
We also advise major organisations on joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, including Schibsted on its acquisition of Done Deal, Xilink on its acquisition of Omiino and Berkshire Partners, Advent International and Bain Capital in their recommended $1.2 billion offer for Skillsoft plc.
