Investment and financing are the lifeblood of all business, fuelling growth and sustaining success.  Our knowledge and expertise in this field is particularly focussed on its importance to the SME sector.

We have a wealth of experience in the equity structuring of start ups and the inward flow of both ‘seed’ and ‘angel’ capital by way of subscription and investment agreements and schemes.  We work with a range of advisors to ensure structures that facilitate investment, such as EIS, and at the same time maximise the options available to our clients, be they business owners or potential investors.

Private Equity is an increasingly important source of finance for the SME market and out experience in acting for both SME’s and private equity providers allows us to tailor solutions that balance the need for security with the flexibility to make the investments viable.

We are on the panels for most of the mainstream lenders so whatever the method of finance (invoice discounting, secured lending or cash flow lending ) we can ensure the most appropriate facilities and security can be put in place in the most proportionate way.
