Investors & Entrepreneurs

Investors

We have extensive experience of providing commercial advice to investors on the terms of their investment and subsequent exit.

We cut through the jargon to ensure that investors are fully aware of the nature of their investment, the anticipated returns and their level of control in the business.

We understand that investors usually only have a limited amount of time to consider business opportunities and that clear, direct advice is required.

Examples of our work in this area include:

  • Structuring, drafting and negotiating investments;
  • Reviewing investment agreements;
  • Share schemes and benefits; and
  • Tax, corporate and personal planning structures

Entrepreneurs

We have extensive experience of advising entrepreneurs through all stages of their business, from their formative years to ultimate exit.

We understand the importance of strategic decisions made in the early years and how these can influence a business’s success in the future.

Once a business is established the focus of our advice frequently moves to consideration of external funding, to help a business to realise its potential.  We assist entrepreneurs to ensure that they fully understand the terms of any finance or investment offered and work with them to conclude the deal as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We also advise entrepreneurs on all legal considerations around exit and realising the full value of their business.

Issues we regularly advise entrepreneurs on include;
