Corporate & Securities Services

Entrepreneurial attorneys with a passion for building innovative companies at all stages of growth


We advise growth-oriented businesses across all industries - from ambitious startups and their founders to well-established corporations - on a wide range of corporate, commercial, and securities needs, leveraging extensive legal and business experience, deep industry knowledge, and a shared love of entrepreneurship to support clients as they scale for growth.

Our Approach

The business-forward approach that defines our corporate practice is inextricably tied to the firm’s origin story. Scale was founded by entrepreneurs and former Silicon Valley GCs with a shared passion for building businesses. We’ve built a team of like-minded attorneys who understand the value of delivering practical advice to help clients thrive, while also managing risk.

Areas of Practice

Our practice is distinguished by the considerable in-house legal experience of many of our attorneys, resulting in a business-forward mindset and a true understanding of what drives growth. We approach issues by first working to understand a client’s operational side - including its culture and processes - and factoring these insights into the solution, which enables us to deliver more practical, efficient, and cost-effective advice. Clients value this experienced business savvy as much as they do our top-tier legal skills and the high quality, innovative results we consistently deliver on matters ranging from:
