    Investors and Entrepreneurs Legal Services

We understand that when working with investors and entrepreneurs, everything is personal.

Innovative entrepreneurial businesses are nurtured by both founders and investors who bring a unique and dynamic approach to growing a business. Our team will get to know every aspect of your idea or business venture, becoming valued strategic advisers who provide practical and understandable advice that is right for you. We truly understand the full lifecycle of a business.

When undertaking any type of new investment or change to an organisation, we aim to support and advise you in a way that always stays true to your core values from both an individual and business perspective.

How we support Entrepreneurs

We assist entrepreneurs at all stages of their business’ growth journey, whether they are looking to grow their business organically, through external investment or dispose of their interest through a sale, or through a potential listing on a stock market. We also advise on the full range of legal needs, both in preparation for and after the successful launch of a business, including on matters relating to corporate, intellectual property, commercial, employment, property, tax and more.

How we support Investors

We specialise in supporting investors on managing their portfolios across the full investment lifecycle, including the appropriate structure through which to invest, aligned with their personal financial needs and succession plan. The multi-disciplinary transactional advice that we provide helps our clients to maximise their investment.  

How we support the individuals behind the business

We are one of the few law firms that can advise investors and entrepreneurs on personal matters, as well as their business. Whether you need advice on wealth and tax structuring, family and business governance, and other business-related issues, buying and selling property, dealing with family disputes or philanthropy, our multidisciplinary team work together to find the right solution.

Sector expertise and community

We advise some of the most successful investors and disruptive founder-led businesses across many key industries. Our technical knowledge, coupled with our passion for the sectors in which our clients operate, ensure that our advice is commercially focussed and grounded in a deep understanding of its key drivers.
