Venture capital

Our venture capital team is recognised as one of the strongest in Europe, advising our clients across all stages of their lifecycle from "cradle to liquidity". Our international offering includes many of the major tech hubs, such as Silicon Valley, London, Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam.  We see all sides of the investment dialogue enabling us to understand and focus on the commercial drivers and drive efficiency in managing transactions.

We act for many of the most high profile investors - from prominent early stage funds and the biggest international venture capital firms to corporate investors and sovereign wealth funds – as well as many of the most successful early and growth stage investee companies across the world. We've advised on many headline grabbing investments in the last decade, and many clients have been clients of the firm since their inception, valuing our strategic, tactical and technical advice

Our aim is simple, to use our heritage and continued involvement as leaders in the Venture Capital market to enable you to make the right decisions with confidence.
