What we know 


Startups are everywhere

The number of start-ups today is on the rise, with a large number of young and ambitious people embarking on entrepreneurial ventures.

You need to protect your idea

We live in a fast-paced, technologically driven society, and the success of your business depends on having the proper safeguards around your intellectual property.

You need your structures in place to get started

Laying the foundations for your new business enables you to hit the ground running and focus on what you do best: running your business.

You want the best advice, at a reasonable, fixed price.

Tailored and professional legal advice from the get-go is invaluable, but you’re building a business and don’t want any nasty surprises when the bill arrives.

You need your legal and accounting/taxation advice to go hand-in-hand

You want your lawyer and your accountant to be on the same page, so the advice you receive is consistent, logical and carefully-thought out.

Is all this too much to ask?

We don’t think so.
