Corporate Funding

The world of corporate funding can be confusing, time-consuming and, at times, daunting. We provide straightforward solutions to growing businesses.

Our experts draw on their commercial background as well their legal know-how and the commercial director her knowledge as an entrepreneur and founder. We will prepare and/or audit your legal documents, assist you with your corporate structure and guide you through the due diligence and other processes to get you investment-ready and negotiate terms going forward. We have both the experience and the know-how as to what a bank or angel investor or otherwise is going to ask you, expect to see and the importance likely attributed to these documents. As such, we can go through a pre-funding due diligence process with you to ensure you are ready and can meet the expectations of the funder.
