Venture Capital

We are recognised as one of the leading VC practices in the UK, with deep experience advising on transactions from initial funding all the way through to exit.

We act for many of Europe’s top tier investors (whether venture capital firms, family offices, corporate venture arms, strategic investors and solo VCs) and most exciting emerging and scaling companies around, providing us with a clear vision of all perspectives on the fundraising conversation. Being based in London, we are at the epicentre of Europe’s VC and tech market and plugged into that community, as well as regularly advising on cross border transactions worldwide.

Our experience and expertise allow us to provide clear, realistic and commercial advice on all types of transactions, with a primary focus on technology businesses. For investors, we know how to minimise the downside and maximise the opportunity for a successful exit; for founders and companies, we know where to push back to protect your business and how to align competing interests to allow for continued growth; for all clients, we know how to help achieve your goals in the most efficient manner possible.

We are a proud member of the British Venture Capital Association and sit on the BVCA drafting committee, the body responsible for producing its Series A model documents. These template documents are recognised as the industry standard in the UK, aimed at reducing negotiation and making venture transactions more efficient.
