Start-Ups and Spin-Outs

‍We act for start-ups and spin-outs wishing to add value to their business. The Commercial team at Greenaway Scott will draft a suite of template documents tailored to the client’s needs to enable them to begin trading effectively and place the business in a strong position from the outset.

It is usual for start-ups and spin-outs to receive first round investment in order to market their business and take forward their products or services. Investment can come from varied sources, ranging from Venture Capitalist funders and angel investors to interested private or public organisations. The corporate division would lead the investment transactions and projects, together with all ancillary corporate requirements and act in the interest of the start-up and spin-out businesses to ensure their position is securely protected.

Greenaway Scott appreciates that businesses in the initial stages of growth benefit from having a full suite of bespoke templates drafted for use from the outset, as well as access to legal advice and support as needed.

Having “unlimited” access to members of our team, alongside the template agreements, enables start-ups to immediately begin effectively dealing with the full spectrum of prospective customers, from small to large corporations. This facility improves the perception of the quality of our clients’ businesses within their industry, whilst also ensuring their business and interests are effectively protected.

Under the retainer fee structure our team are available on demand (subject to a fair use policy) to provide comprehensive legal and commercial support. By having these legal services at hand it enhances the perception companies have of start-ups, as it ensures they are a professional, practical and efficient company to deal with.
