Kurtin PLLC is a New York City-based law firm founded in 2008. Our practice focuses on corporate, commercial, and regulatory representation for both mature and early stage companies, investment funds, investors and lenders in the Biotechnology & Life Sciences; Communications & Media; Information Technologies, Blockchain & Internet; Satellites & Space; and Venture Capital & Private Equity sectors, and in Constitutional and civil rights issues arising in the Communications, Media, Technology and Arts sectors. Among our key values, none rank higher than creative and individualized solutions to business issues, absolute client discretion and unsurpassed responsiveness.

We handle a wide range of M&A and Private Equity transactions, including buyouts, divestitures and roll-ups; cross-border Joint Ventures and Strategic Alliances; Securities Offerings and Private Placements; and Financial and Strategic Investments. We counsel company boards and officers on their fiduciary obligations, ’34 Act reporting obligations and other governance issues and shareholders and creditors on their rights. We have also implemented “Swiss/Singapore Principal,” “Master Feeder” and related profitability and efficiency-maximizing corporate governance structures for multinational enterprises, onshore and offshore investment funds and other vehicles.

We also negotiate complex commercial agreements such as the development, financing, manufacture, sale, licensing, leasing, distribution and deployment of services, software and equipment for satellite, terrestrial and submarine broadband telecommunications and digital media networks; artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and robotics; blockchain, Fintech, cryptocurrencies, digital assets and non-fungible tokens (NFTs); data privacy and cybersecurity; and biotechnology and life sciences products.

Our practice is international. We have in-country experience throughout North America; Western and Eastern Europe; the Middle East and Persian Gulf; and Central, South and East Asia.  Since 2008, we have represented clients in over forty countries on six continents and across the United States on transactional and dispute resolution matters.

We recognize that our clients seek new ways to achieve their business goals and expect legal services to be as innovative and goal-responsive as they must be. We also recognize that while our clients seek a closer alignment of the attorney-client relationship with their business needs and risks, they also expect and require objective and disinterested legal advice from that relationship. The balance of that alignment and objectivity is key to the service we seek to provide.

To those ends, we offer alternative billing solutions, which may include partial success-based fees for certain transactional matters and disputes; tiered flat fee billing arrangements for corporate, commercial and regulatory matters; and retainers or subscriptions for recurring or continuing baskets of services. As part of this effort, we offer our Inbound & Startup program of flat-fee services for the formation, organization, financing and operations of U.S. subsidiaries and affiliates of non-U.S.-based companies, U.S. startups and onshore and offshore businesses and funds. We also offer Virtual General Counsel services for businesses and funds past the startup phase and with ongoing legal counsel needs but not ready to employ full time in-house counsel. For more information, click on Inbound & Startup and Virtual General Counsel Legal Services.

We also engage in carefully selected pro bono and public service work. Past projects have included assistance to children’s rights and relief organizations, obtaining political asylum for persecuted African and Asian refugees, representation of performing and graphic artists and filmmakers in producing their work and protecting their rights, and assistance to the digital communications infrastructure of a major metropolitan performing arts center.
