Welcome to Venture capital providers

Venture capitalists may be prepared to take calculated risks on a number of things, but sound legal advice shouldn't be one of them.

When you are working out whether a potential investment could be the next big thing or an expensive mistake, the last thing you need is for your legal support to come up short.

Our experienced team has advised a wide range of venture capitalists, from small seed capital providers to multi-million pound development capital funds and everything in between on investments in everything from cutting edge technology businesses to well established manufacturers.

We have a strong track record of advising on a variety of investments including start-up funding, capital for early stage companies and development capital.

Our pragmatic and commercially-focused approach is aimed at securing the best possible deal within timescales and costs which suit all parties whilst always keeping your interests firmly in mind.

Being a large, well-resourced commercial law firm we can bring our specialist lawyers to bear on any legal issues that are identified during the process or that arise after the investment is made.

Our experienced tax lawyers are also on hand to provide timely advice on taxation issues arising from investments.

As well as advising venture capital companies, we also advise investee businesses and business angels so we can bring that valuable perspective to bear on any transaction.

Our close links within the business community and a history of working with cutting edge new companies mean that we can also form a valuable link with potential investee businesses.

Our services include:
