Why use us?


  • Passion - We are passionate about start-ups.  We enjoy working with them and it’s immensely satisfying to help them to realise their dreams. 


  • Experience - We have the experience, both in helping businesses with their initial set-up and also in assisting them when established. 


  • Costs - We are upfront about costs and look for ways to help start-ups reduce costs.  We don’t have the overheads of traditional law firms and are able to pass the cost savings on to our clients.
