MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS
Having closed more than $2.5 Billion in deal value in over 100 acquisitions of all sizes and complexity, we provide a cost-efficient solution for small and mid-sized companies. Buying or selling a business can be a stressful experience for all parties involved. ClearVenture Legal helps its clients navigate these negotiations with pragmatic solutions and skilled representation.
EMERGING GROWTH/ START-UP
From business formation to early financing transactions, ClearVenture Legal provides flexible billing arrangements for our early stage clients. We understand that there is an inherent trade off that early-stage companies must make with limited funds. We work with entrepreneurs and young companies to help them understand the risks associated with taking or foregoing certain strategies in order to make short and long-term decisions that best meet their needs. As business owners ourselves, we understand the push-and-pull of these important decisions.
GENERAL COUNSEL SERVICES
Navigating the complex landscape in which any business operates can be challenging. We provide strategic insight in order to bridge the gap between the legal and the practical for our clients. ClearVenture Legal serves as a trusted business and legal advisor and outside general counsel for a number of mid-sized companies. We help our clients develop and implement infrastructure, manage employment related matters, develop legal strategies and aid in their day-to-day contracting needs.
ClearVenture Legal provides proven preventative strategies to employers looking to establish the proper controls for their business. Having served as general counsel overseeing the human resources department of multiple nationwide companies, we understand how to develop systems to avoid future employment issues and disputes.
Having served as inside and outside legal counsel for a number of nationwide mid-sized companies and a division of a Fortune 20 company, we can handle most transactional matters that impact any business. We have extensive experience with building systems and infrastructure, developing template contracts, negotiating core supply contracts, distribution & reseller arrangements, co-packer agreements, and services agreements in all their varieties. We take the time to understand your business and the transaction in order to ensure your key goals are addressed appropriately.
ClearVenture Legal delivers strategic advice and assistance to the licensed profession industries (including medical, dental, veterinary and others). We have served as general counsel for a number of veterinary/pet care, nationwide consolidators and can provide insights into the industry and your transaction.
REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
Whether a buyer, seller, landlord, tenant, developer, investor or property owner, ClearVenture Legal provides practical know how and timely solutions in real estate related transactions. Having closed more than $1 Billion in purchase and sale transactions and served as counsel for some of the largest and most sophisticated landlords in Idaho and elsewhere, we are well positioned to negotiate a purchase/sale or commercial lease transaction that meets your needs.
ClearVenture Legal was initially founded in April 2017 by Matt Bradshaw. ClearVenture Legal aims to help its clients clarify their business purpose and assist in charting a clear path to future success. Matt founded ClearVenture in a belief that the traditional law firm model is, in many ways, broken. Due to the cost-structure and historical staffing models employed, most small and mid-sized companies are unable to obtain sophisticated legal services at a reasonable price. Responses are delayed and communication rare. Companies are often forced to utilize poorly drafted, outdated, or unenforceable materials or pay excessive fees to law firms. ClearVenture Legal utilizes a lean business model and provides a flexible pricing structure based on the actual needs of our clients.
Matt grew up in a family business, working alongside his parents and siblings on their family farm/ranch in SE Idaho. Matt graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Management from Brigham Young University in 2009. Matt then attended William and Mary School of Law in Williamsburg, Virginia, graduating with distinction (cum laude) in 2013. Matt is licensed to practice law in the State of Idaho.
Matt is also the proud founder and owner of a number of successful business ventures. As a business owner and entrepreneur himself, he understands the need to see the big picture and develop practical, common sense solutions that help drive revenue and achieve the long term goals of his clients. Matt understands balancing legal risk with strategic business planning. Matt strives to be, in every way, a legal adviser who can help navigate the strategic and legal landscape with his clients.
Matt's legal experience includes working in private practice at the largest Mountain West based law firm, Holland & Hart LLP, and the largest Idaho-based law firm, Hawley Troxell LLP. In recent years, he has also served as the Chief Legal Officer of Valley Veterinary Care, a nationwide PE-backed veterinary consolidation company, Destination Pet, LLC, a nationwide pet care/vet care PE-backed consolidation company and Vektor Builders International LLC, a nationwide construction company.
