IBC rocks and has done things large and small for VC companies and public ones. They have the same skill set as any large firm but are a much better value.
I’ve been working with Mike Kardash and IBC for 20 years. I use IBC for all of my legal needs, including several investment opportunities that I am currently pursuing with IBC’s assistance.
IBC has represented BetterCloud as our outsourced general counsel since 2012. They are incredibly responsive and effective, fulfilling virtually all of our legal needs at a very affordable rate. We highly recommend them.
We’ve been working with IBC as transaction counsel since 2013 and have recommended them as general corporate counsel to several of our portfolio companies. Their combination of expertise, responsiveness and affordability is exceptional.
Mike Kardash and IBC handled the legal needs of my business from formation through its sale, including general corporate work, financing our business, two buy-side acquisitions and the ultimate sale of the company. As we grew from 2 to more than 90 employees, we greatly benefitted from IBC’s legal expertise and business sense. We could not have done it without them.
IBC has represented SalesFusion since 2013, including general corporate representation and over $14 million in equity financings. They consistently provide responsive and insightful legal advice at affordable rates. They are a tremendous asset for our company.
Mike Kardash is *very* effective, has solid business judgment, and isn't nearly as pricey as most attorneys. He is phenomenal for all the core stuff — company setup, options, governance, fund raising/cap table mechanics, etc. Very good coach and lots of wisdom. If you want to pay $500-$750/hour, I can recommend some attorneys from [AmLaw 100 firms]. But Mike does a better job for less. I'm consistently amazed by how many start-ups in town use [AmLaw 100 Firms] and rack up big legal bills (or, just as bad, don't even consume legal because it is cost-prohibitive) working with ‘name brand’ firms as if that matters at all.
Working with Mike and the team at IBC has been an excellent experience. They approach issues from an entrepreneurial perspective and figure out how to creatively solve problems. The amount of experience they bring to the table is unmatched. Regardless of the issue we need assistance with, IBC is both highly effective and efficient. They quickly understand the nuances of our issue and then they rapidly craft a solution. Best of all, they are affordable.
