Experience & History
In 2005 our founding partners bought out the commercial business of a leading full service law firm to enable us to focus purely on commercial legal services, to provide a more dynamic service offering and to grow.
Our MBO allowed us to understand the challenges and risks of setting up and growing a successful business. This has shaped our values and our culture. We are entrepreneurial in the way that we work with entrepreneurial businesses and this involves us giving you high quality and practical advice with a real focus on value add. It is not just about the deal, it is about our long term relationship with you and what we can do to help you succeed.
As part of being different and taking an entrepreneurial approach to the way that we work we have also helped set up a business which is now a key supplier, not just to us but to hundreds of other law firms throughout the UK. We promised to make the first investment, to provide board seat support and be the first customer to help. We took a risk and we stood by this business and have helped it to scale up and raise further investment. This is what we do. We go on the journey with you.
As part of our own journey the firm has grown substantially in size over the years. We have become market leaders and sector specialists for advising on investment deals and tech companies throughout the UK. We advise on Scottish, English and also US deals.
We now have offices in London as well as Edinburgh and have grown our client following to include substantial companies of scale, venture capital funds and institutional investors. However to be clear we have not forgotten our roots and we remain deeply passionate about supporting and working with young entrepreneurs and start-up companies.
Many of our lawyers have joined us from leading firms across the UK and the US. They are looking for something different and we are different. We have clever people with a ‘can-do’ focus who can think outside the box and work in an environment where entrepreneurial thinking and problem solving is essential.
We look forward to working with you and making sure that helping you with your journey becomes part of our journey and our history.
