We want our clients to grow and succeed and we want to be a key member of their team on their journey - from start-up phase, expansion (organically and/or by acquisition and/or through equity/debt funding) through to successful exit.

Our expert team of commercial lawyers, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, has extensive experience of advising entrepreneurs on business start-ups. We understand start-up business strategy: whether you’re a tech start-up, using an incubator or running your business from the spare room or your kitchen table, we can help.
