Corporate & Corporate Finance lawyers for high-growth businesses

Our specialist practice spans M&A, venture capital, venture debt, debt and leveraged finance.

We build deep relationships with our best-in-class clients helping them to finance research, innovation and growth.


What services do we offer?

We are an equity and debt fundraising boutique law firm. We focus on advising our clients from pre-seed investment rounds and beyond on all corporate and commercial matters. We generally act for companies raising equity, convertible or venture debt from family offices, venture capital funds and high net worth individuals. We take a very targeted approach to client selection to ensure that we work on the matters where we can drive the most value for our clients.

Our specialist services include:

  • Pre-seed, seed and Series A Investment Rounds
  • Convertible loan notes, SAFEs, advanced subscription agreements and other bridge financing tools
  • Shareholder Agreements and Articles of Association
  • Mergers and Acquisitions (in particular acting for exiting founding teams)
  • Company secretarial support on all corporate actions

How do we work?

We are used to working with early stage and high growth businesses. We offer a full range of services, including a menu of fixed price ‘off-the-peg’ solutions that allow our lawyers to focus their talents on your core needs. A fixed price gives certainty to both sides and ensures we are aligned. Our thoughtfully developed intake processes ensure we minimise back and forth, saving you time and allowing us to deliver a dedicated fixed price service that will surprise and delight with speed and quality of its execution. Some of our fixed price services are set out below.
