Risk Reduction Specialists

“RISK comes from not knowing what you are doing.” – warren buffet

Technology Startups are by nature high risk ventures, but with tremendous upside potential. Our job is to help technology startup entrepreneurs, founders, and their investors reduce risk. Early stage startups face several types of risks including: 

  • Legal Risk. This is the risk of getting sued in court or facing other legal challenges
  • Financial Risk. This is the risk of undercapitalization or overspending and otherwise running out of startup capital
  • Market Risk. This includes the risks associated with product development and productization, promotion and advertising, pricing and revenue channels, distribution, and related business and market factors

Traditional legal and business law firm approaches to these risks rarely apply to today’s cutting edge technology startups who are looking for the fastest and most efficient path to: 

  • Build a prototype or minimum viable product (“MVP”)
  • Successfully launch and beta-test, 
  • Get traction and scale
  • Raise capital from investors or other sources of capital
  • Recruit talent for the team
  • Protect their intellectual property and innovations
  • Create a company stock structure, and 
  • To do it all and much more with minimal risk 

David applies the Lean Startup Up Methodology in consultation with startup clients and entrepreneurs covering a wide range of early-stage legal and business affairs considerations including: 

  • Company formation and structuring strategy 
  • Business plan and pitch deck creation 
  • Intellectual property protection strategy 
  • Early stage contract and deal-structuring consultation

Distinguished from most other attorneys, David has substantial experience in entrepreneurship and investing in technology startups which when coupled with David’s legal expertise creates a unique ability to navigate between business and legal considerations with ease and consult entrepreneur and startup clients through a perspective few attorneys can match. This is why David Nima Sharifi is one of the top technology startup attorneys in Los Angeles.

In addition to David’s legal accolades and credentials, David launched his first startup, a tutoring service for grade school children at age 18, then another startup in the consumer packaged goods industry while finishing law school and sitting for the California bar exam in 2007. David is also a former member of the Investment Committee at Westwood Ventures, a micro-fund of AVG which deploys upwards of $250 million per year alongside top lead investors in hard-to-access deals.

David is a respected technology leader with a distinguished track record for delivering winning strategies to technology based ventures on critical issues across the full transaction and innovation cycle, including targeting, due diligence, revenue growth, product differentiation, asset valuation, market analysis, and competitive barrier strategy. David has been recognized as among the Top 30 Most Influential Digital Media and E-Commerce Law Attorneys and has appeared on numerous news outlets as an expert in the legal and business affairs of innovation.
