Starting a business:

Starting and running a business is complicated. We know – we’re business owners too. We’re here to help build strong legal structures, give straightforward expert advice and deal with problems as they arise. Leaving you free to do what you do best – run your business.

We love working with startups, freelancers and small businesses in any field, but particularly creative, tech and fast-growth companies. Here are the main areas of work we cover.


Company compliance:

Whether you’re starting up your first business, selling off your empire, or anything in between, we’ll guide you through the legal aspects and make sure your business is protected and compliant. We can advise on:

  • Agreements between co-owners (Shareholders’ Agreements, articles of association, directors’ service agreements)
  • Investment and fundraising
  • Share issues
  • Granting share options
  • Sales and purchases of businesses
  • Appointment and removal of directors


Commercial business agreements:

Whatever your business is, having clear agreements in place means everyone knows what the deal is, you are protected if something goes wrong and disputes are far less likely. We can help you with:

  • Terms of business
  • Freelance contracts/terms of engagement
  • Supply of goods/services agreements
  • Distribution and agency agreements
  • Technology/software:
    • development
    • licencing
    • Saas
  • Website terms of use
  • Data protection notices and policies


We’ll guide you through events or issues with employees as they arise. We also advise employees on employment contracts and settlement agreements. 

Dispute resolution:

Legal disputes can be a huge drain on resources, time and energy and frankly, they’re best avoided altogether. Where that’s not possible, we’ll work with you to quickly assess and advise you on your options, and together work out the best way forward.

We handle disputes relating to:

  • Unpaid debts
  • Employment
  • Contracts
  • Company/partnerships
  • Intellectual Property
