Using freelance work on new business site?

My business partner and I have recently started a new media design firm, doing many aspects of advertising including video, audio, print, web design, yadda yadda...

We both have a great work from freelancing that we'd like to put on our site. But how can we use that work on our site? We can't say that our new company did them, although he and I seperately did the work in our past freelance lives. We have some work we've done under the new company, but how do we add our past stuff? Is there a disclaimer that we can put up like, "We used to freelance and this is some stuff we did." Granted not so dumbed down, but you get the idea.

Thanks, all.

I see no problem with this since the company is made up of you. People break up and form new ventures all the time and what they bring to the company is their experience and the only way to show your experience is to show previous work. As long as that previous work was already released (i.e. not covered by an NDA) then you should be fine.

on the sample web page just list the work that you did under your name ( editor, DP , paint whatever ) and list whatever your partner did under his name not list the samples under the company name .... this happens all the time as editors, directors move to different houses = they take their sample reels with them ...
