Our market-leading corporate team supports some of the most innovative, high-growth companies and spinouts in the UK to raise their initial growth (startup/seed) capital. We also work with a range of high net worth angel investors, angel syndicates and family offices looking to invest in such companies. 

Our corporate solicitors are alive to the issues facing such businesses. The team supports the entrepreneurial ecosystem they work in through pro bono mentoring arrangements and partnerships with promising incubators and accelerators such as Bright Red Triangle, Edinburgh Innovations Students, the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation and the Launch Academy by ORE Catapult.

Our team knows that the fundraising process can be daunting. Therefore, our advice is always in plain English and without jargon. We help our clients in their investment decision-making process and ensure that strong foundations are set, at the outset, which helps ambitious entrepreneurs deliver on their potential. Because we are very active at each stage of the growth company life cycle, we add real value by ensuring that entrepreneurs can grow their businesses quickly.
