Fundraising, Securities and Investment Law

Raising funds from investors is a huge commitment in time and resources. Knowing exactly what you’ll get is critical, but equally important is what you’re giving away in return. And as an investor, you’ll want to ensure your stake is legally protected and that your investor rights are properly documented. Whether you’re a startup, angel or seed investor, venture capital firm or equity crowdfunding platform, having a good startup or securities lawyer on board is essential.

At Lexoo, we’ve curated a panel of lawyers who specialise in fundraising, securities and investment law. Whether you need a full service firm; an independent lawyer or ‘virtual’ firm with lower overheads and reduced fees - we’ve got you covered. We’ll find you specialists in any type of securities and investment law matter such as angel or venture capital investment, equity crowdfunding or SEIS / EIS applications. We even have lawyers that can help with ICOs, Cryptocurrency, or Blockchain matters.

Simply tell us your requirements and you’ll get multiple, fixed-fee quotes within 24 hours from a selection of fundraising, securities and investment lawyers, handpicked to suit your needs. The service is 100% free - give us a try.

Angel and Seed Investment

Angel and seed investing can be an exhilarating rollercoaster ride for both startups and investors. But the thrill of backing (or being) the next billion-dollar unicorn is a high-risk game, with many potential pitfalls.

Whether you're a startup looking for seed investment, an angel investor or syndicate of friends and family , we can find you a great startup lawyer with expertise in securities law to help with term sheets, subscription and shareholder agreements, along with deeds of adherence and convertible notes.

SEIS and EIS Applications

The government's EIS and SEIS schemes offer some of the most attractive tax breaks in the UK. However, applying for and obtaining the go-ahead to claim the relief from HMRC can be daunting.

We can put you in touch with experts experienced in advising on EIS and SEIS schemes on behalf of both startups and investors, who can talk you through the entire process, offering advice on everything from EIS/SEIS advance assurance applications, compliance and tax certificates.

Venture Capital Investment

Venture capital is a crucial source of funding for startups, scale-ups and high growth companies. However, as a founder, it is vital you understand exactly what you're getting and what you're giving away. And investors need to ensure their investor rights properly documented.

We can put you in touch with experienced startup lawyers, specialising in venture capital investments from Series A and beyond. They’ll advise you on everything you need to know, including shareholder agreements, anti-dilution provisions, liquidation preferences, pre-emption and consent rights.

Equity Crowdfunding

Equity crowdfunding is revolutionising the way money is invested into startups and early-stage businesses. Everyday retail investors can now invest in their favourite products via a range of online crowdfunding platforms, which is fast becoming a mainstream form of funding for UK startups. However, managing the complexities of this relatively new form of investment requires expertise in securities regulation, FCA authorisation, financial promotion and tax.

If you're an existing (or aspiring) crowdfunding platform, we can get you multiple quotes within 24 hours from lawyers who can steer you through the legal and regulatory issues.
