Model Legal Documents

The NVCA Model Legal Documents are the industry-embraced model documents that can be used in venture capital financings. They reduce the time and cost of financings and free principals time to focus on high-level issues.

The model documents:

  • Reduce transaction costs and time
  • Reflect, guide, and establish industry norms
  • Avoid bias toward the VC or the company/entrepreneur
  • Present potential options, reflecting a variety of financing terms
  • Include explanatory commentary where necessary or helpful
  • Anticipate and eliminate traps for unenforceable or unworkable provisions
  • Provide a comprehensive set of internally consistent financing documents

Disclaimer: Each document is intended to serve as a starting point only, and should be tailored to meet your specific requirements. These documents should not be construed as legal advice for any particular facts or circumstances.
