Legal Support at Every Stage
Our technology lawyers help businesses through all legal requirements at every step of the way.
The start-up process can be frantic. From developing your product or service as quickly as possible, investing in research and development, to market launches. Understanding how important it is to protect your hard earned IP, how to identify collaboration or joint venture opportunities to finance your business growth, and attract and retain the right talent as your head count increases. It can be daunting to know what step is next. Our interactive Start-up toolkit is there to help you – from protecting your IP to negotiating supplier contracts.
Once you have established your business, your product is now making waves in the market, the next stage is growth. Often tech firms find this tough: a totally different set of skills and advice is required. This is where our experts add value by applying their experience and commercial nous to help firms make the next jump. From access to finance or moving premises, how best to manage a growing team with new talent or whether growing through a merger or acquisition is on the cards. We can help you scale up.
We can help guide you through this process, always being the technology lawyer who understands what is important to you. We will prepare your business for sale, guide you through an 'initial public offering' (IPO) and make sure you are personally protected afterwards.
