Legal Subscription Services - for Startups

Your senior in-house legal team, at a fraction of the cost

Legal advice for new and growing businesses

Congratulations on setting up your business or at least coming up with the idea you want to explore! It is essential for your fledgling business to have access to specialist legal support as your business starts to grow and thrive. We find that many of our startup clients value having access to continued legal support in the early stages of their business growth and as they develop their MVP (minimum viable product).

This has prompted us to set up a dedicated legal services subscription that is both wallet-friendly and specifically tailored for startup and growing businesses. Our job is to help you to deal with the ongoing legal challenges of running your business from inception through to pre-seed, seed and beyond, so you can concentrate on proving concept and getting investors interested to fund your startup. Our team even has contacts in the investor space and can help facilitate appropriate conversations between startup and investor.

We have included a carefully thought-out range of startup legal services to help support and guide you as your ideas develop into a fully-fledged business and onto success. Please see more information further down this page.. 

You can contact us by sending an email to or giving us a call at 07825183655.
