Start-ups and Emerging Growth

We understand that start-ups and emerging growth companies have very specific legal requirements and concerns, which change rapidly as their business grows. Our firm provides a full range of legal and strategic services for all stages of business development, including ongoing legal mentoring tailored to our clients’ specific business goals and industry considerations. We regularly advise start-ups and emerging growth companies regarding all aspects of business formation, including legal proof business models, drafting and negotiating all types of agreements and documents necessary to launch, develop and protect their products or services.

We work closely with our clients to understand their business aims so that we are able to develop the legal and organizational structures necessary to support our clients, particularly with regard to the legal viability and regulatory compliance of their business model.

We regularly support start-ups and emerging companies which are seeking finance, as well as clients considering potential investments in such companies. Our experience with clients on both sides of this relationship means we can provide clients with more focused and insightful due diligence services, as well as effective strategic legal advice in securing financial sources. We often advise our clients on how to avoid common obstacles which emerging growth and start-up companies experience during establishment and finance raising activities.

Our firm is actively engaged in mentoring young businesses to provide a legal perspective. We help clients with both legal and strategic planning, including assisting clients to identify their legal strengths, weaknesses and associated business strategies. Our active engagement helps ensure young businesses –from a legal perspective- are adequately prepared for future growth and development.

Start-ups and emerging growth companies often grow quickly and financial concerns are at the front of mind. We tailor our legal services to ensure that our clients receive an appropriate level of support for their particular stage of development, reducing the associated costs and complications. Our integrated approach means that start-ups and emerging growth companies receive support from other related practice areas, as their business needs it. This includes support from our corporate, tax, intellectual property, data security and employment teams.
