We help start-ups and early stage companies to protect and grow their business. We do this by acting as an in house legal department that is on hand to assist the business whenever a legal matter arises. Unlike a traditional law firm, we don't charge by the hour and we won't charge for each phone call or email. Instead, all of our fees are fixed and agreed with you upfront. If you would prefer to retain our ongoing support, we will be happy to structure a fixed monthly fee on terms that are flexible to help grow and protect your business.
See Our Workflow for more information on how we work.
We can help you develop a solid strategy to protect your intellectual property. Confidential relationships and non-disclosure agreements are often the first step to protecting your idea.
We can help you avoid the risk of using a name that is already registered as a trade mark by someone else. We can conduct detailed trade mark searches in most territories around the world and we can help you register your name as a trade mark in order to prevent others from using it without your permission.
The devil is in the detail and not reading a contract properly can sometimes cost a business its future even when it comes down to a few simple words. The difference between ‘Best’ and ‘Reasonable’ being one example. We can review your contracts for you before you sign them, making sure you’re fully aware of the risks.
We can help you plan and structure everyone’s roles and responsibilities at the start in order to manage yours and your investor’s expectations in the future. Heads of terms, shareholders agreements, loan agreements and careful due diligence are just a few examples of how we can help.
We can help you prepare the right policies and procedures for your team that fit with your culture. Employment contracts, staff handbooks, disciplinary and grievance procedures, dismissal and redundancy are just a few examples of the areas we can assist you with.
We can help you structure the agreement which will manage the relationship between your business and a third party contractor. Project milestones, costs, timescales, scope of the service and intellectual property are all areas that can be clearly defined.
