We act for clients at all stages of their fundraising life-cycle, whether seed capital for start-ups, debt or equity finance for established businesses or secondary offerings for listed companies.
At whatever stage your business is at, our team can provide pragmatic legal advice and assistance, taking into account your circumstances and future outlook. Having acted both for investee and investor entities means that we understand the commercial pressures and drivers on both sides of the table and can transact efficiently on your behalf. We have close relationships with a variety of advisers covering all aspects of fundraising transactions (corporate financiers and accountants, and for listed companies, Nomads and brokers) which gives us a holistic understanding of transactions ensuring that our advice is always commercial and practical.
If you are a listed company looking to raise funds, please see our Capital Markets page.
If you are a private company looking to raise funds through equity investments, we can help you with the early stages of funding, such as seed and angel investments, SEIS, EIS and crowd funding. As you grow, we can advise on institutional series A, B and C funding rounds, venture capital or private equity investments and minority or majority investments. We appreciate the considerations as to company ownership and management that come with equity fundraising, and look to provide practical advice on both the transaction proposed and its future implications for your business.
We are equally experienced with debt financing, including advising on bespoke and LMA-style agreements and all associated security documentation.
