Tailored to start up budgets

Our goal is to develop a lasting relationship with you and to play a part in your future success. We understand that new companies have tight budgets, and when working with you we will take a long term view.

We cut through the jargon of early stage financing and focus on core issues. We understand the demands entrepreneurs face when bringing their business ideas from concept stage to the market. It is a very intense process and a time consuming albeit fundamental learning curve which can often affect the level of consideration given to the structuring and legal requirements of a Start-Up. We pride ourselves on “value-add” and aim to cut through the jargon to assist Start-Ups on what matters most to them.

We provide a full range of legal services to Start-Ups and early stage emerging companies. Our services include advice on business structure and formation, financing, corporate governance, investment, intellectual property protection and shareholder matters.

Our team has been advising entrepreneurs for many years and during this period, many of the entrepreneurs have realized their goal of turning their Start-Ups into viable and successful companies which continue to grow today.

Our Experience

We have advised parties on both sides of the table. We have unrivalled experience of Start-Ups and technology companies and have worked with Bank of Ireland Early Stage Equity Fund, Bank of Ireland Start Up and Emerging Sectors Fund, AIB Seed Capital Fund, numerous private Investment Funds, Enterprise Ireland and venture capitalists.

We advise organisations from Start-Up to established corporates, from incorporation right through to Exit. Click here to learn more about recent transactions that we have advised on.


Every successful relationship is built on trust. We will be there to support you at every stage (be it day or night), helping you develop your business while we look after the legals.


We act for companies and investors in private equity and debt financing transactions, including angel and seed capital investment, venture capital investment and private placements of equity and debt securities. We have a network of serial investors that we can link you with who are always on the lookout for opportunities. This may be invaluable if, for example, your Enterprise Ireland commitment is subject to “matching funding”.

Dedicated to Progression

We act for a wide range of clients in implementing complex technology solutions, particularly in the evolving area of cloud computing. We understand innovation and we are dedicated to supporting you. Click here to learn more about recent technology transactions that we have advised on.
