Over the past few years we’ve been advising several of the stars of BBC’s Dragons Den on their investments and exits arising from the programme. We are therefore well versed in the issues and challenges that arise with business start-ups.

We have helped numerous clients establish their businesses and have been there to watch and help them grow over the years.  Having been a start-up ourselves in 2006, we are perhaps better placed than many law firms to understand the needs of our entrepreneur clients and the opportunities available to them.

Naturally we recognise that at this early stage of a business clients do not always have the luxury of spare capital, which is why we will always look for creative ways to help, for example in how we charge for our work.  We can look at fee arrangements that suit the needs of a start-up company, as an investment in a joint future and the key to building a long standing business relationship.

Our services include:

  • Company incorporations
  • Tailoring Articles of Association
  • Shareholder and partnership agreements
  • Investment agreements
  • Intellectual property protection and exploitation
  • Commercial agreements
  • Online trading
  • Data protection
  • Leases and property acquisition
  • Employment issues
  • Dispute resolution
