We work with the complete spectrum of businesses seeking to raise finance: clients looking to start a company or launch a spin-out; to buying a business; or to refinancing or growing an existing enterprise.
High-growth and tech clients
Recent clients in this area include high-growth businesses, and companies working in technology, life sciences and fintech. We help clients access finance through both loans and equity deals.
In all cases, we help our clients set in place arrangements that will give them the desired level of control and risk over their business. All our services are partner-led, and our fee levels are transparent and cost-effective.
Services for companies
There is not enough space here for an exhaustive list of the requirements or mechanisms we can assist you with, but areas we regularly work on include:
- raising finance for start-ups or spin-outs
- private equity and venture capital
- invoice financing / discount financing
- property and asset-backed finance
- acquisition finance.
We also advise on crowdfunding schemes and alternative funding arrangements.
Services for investors and angel funders
We act for a range of business investors, including high-net-worth individuals (HNWs), angel syndicates, and other well-known specialists in this area. Investment is often effected through tax-efficient schemes such as the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS).
Our services to investors include all legal aspects of due diligence, both for Scottish clients and for investors outside Scotland.
Our experience of working with both business owners and leading angel investors means we understand the priorities of both sides. This helps all parties to achieve successful outcomes.
