The Minton Law Group, P.C. (“MLG”) is a boutique corporate law practice located in the heart of midtown Manhattan.

Venture Capital and Angel Investors
MLG represents a host of investment side professionals, ranging from multi-million dollar funds to the one-time angel investor. Whether through a preferred equity issuance, convertible note round or other form of capital raise, we provide expert and experienced legal counsel to our clients.

Startups and Emerging Businesses
From a business’s first days of formation to structuring and raising capital, and at all stages in between, MLG provides its clients with experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel. It is the belief of MLG that a corporate attorney not only knows the law, but can also act as a business advisor. By understanding the needs of a business client, MLG aims to tap expertise and experience to facilitate both the reducing of legal risks for emerging businesses, as well as adding value to a startup business venture.

Business Transactions
Whether acquiring or selling a business, accessing capital markets, drafting a stand-alone contract or advising on corporate governance issues, MLG offers practical solutions that provide value to its clients.

Activist Investing
Before founding MLG, Peter Minton worked in a preeminent activist investing practice where he served issuers, activists and “occasional activists” with navigating their Regulation 13D/G requirements, Section 16(b) requirements, trading rules, Hart-Scott-Rodino and other applicable federal and state securities and corporate laws. Peter counsels his clients on a wide variety of activist and defensive strategies, and has experience dealing with advance notice bylaws; making “books and records” demands; and, when necessary, engaging in proxy battles or consent solicitations.
