Corporate finance & funding

 

We advise both investors looking to invest in business and businesses looking for funding. We work with all of the major banks, many of the leading providers of venture capital and with networks of high net worth investors.

 

Our team of lawyers are recommended by independent legal directories as amongst the best corporate finance lawyers in the region. Those recommendations are based entirely on feedback from clients, who say that Neil “provides a City service at sensible rates” and have “complete confidence in Neil and would not hesitate to use him again for deals.” Simon's client feedback is that he is "expedient and very professional".

 

The team also includes Mark Daly and Andrew Cooper, together with solicitors Megan Radcliffe and Mark Williams. Clients say that they “always put in the extra work, communicate well with each other and demonstrate an understanding of where we are trying to get to”.

 

Examples of recent advice include:

 

Raising substantial new funding from High Net Worth Investors for refrigeration manufacturer Adande, taking advantage of EIS tax reliefs. Chris Thomson led this project, taking responsibility for investment advertisements and communications with shareholders and new investors, in addition to normal legal issues;

Advising the management teams of biotech spin out businesses on their seed funding from venture capital investors, led by Mark Daly;

Andrew Cooper has recently acted for a technology company on equity fund-raising rounds worth in excess of £650,000;

Advising Exomedica on a successful multi-million pound fund raising and the investment of those funds in university medical spin out businesses in Sheffield, Oxford, London, Aberdeen, Bristol, Aberystwyth and Newcastle. Neil Walmsley led this work; and

The formation and funding of Bermudan based insurance business Argo Financial Products, led by Simon Ratcliffe.

 

Additional examples appear on the profile pages for the lawyers in the team shown to the right.

 

...and Bury St Edmunds should be a good place for doing such deals….. It’s where the heads of terms were signed for the Magna Carta, but that’s another story!
