Supporting new and early stage tech businesses

Skip to Overview content

Protect the value of your Tech business both now and in the future with the help of Jumpstart - our specifically designed support for Tech start-ups and early stage Tech businesses.

Our Jumpstart guide advises on setting up, funding and operating a company in the UK, dealing with your intellectual property, employees, data protection, taxation and, when the time is right, effecting an exit from the business.

Along with providing you with the know-how you need, Jumpstart gives you key template legal documents that you can use.

Through Jumpstart you can also access hands-on advice at a commensurate cost to the size of your business from our Tech sector experts who understand the unique challenges facing Tech start-ups within such a dynamic and disruptive market - fierce competition, creating strong brand awareness, protecting your innovation, attracting and retaining both customers and talent. (Our active support to Tech start-ups has included sponsorship and mentoring at Tech start-up accelerators and workspaces, such as the Oxygen Accelerator, FinTech Innovation Lab, Level 39, Communitech and MaRS).

Business already up and running? Looking to spearhead growth?

Then we can help you - whether it's exploiting your IP through our multi-award winning patents expertise or working with our adtech and social media experts to push creative boundaries.

When unexpected issues arise and your business and reputation is at risk, our IT litigation experts are ready to act, from resolving contractual disputes over service or outsourcing agreements, to navigating the maze of software/data licencing and information laws.

Advertising and marketing, corporate and commercial, data protection and security, distance selling and e-commerce, employment and regulatory - all are areas in which our Tech sector team can guide you.

And, if your chosen exit route is by way of a listing on a European or Canadian stock exchange, our market-leading international capital markets team has extensive experience advising Tech sector clients in this regard.

But what about your personal tax position?

We help entrepreneurs to structure their personal and business assets in a tax-efficient manner in anticipation of a future exit.
