In detail

Traditional borrowing isn’t always the best or most realistic route to finance your business; alternative finance could well provide the answer. With extensive experience and thought leadership in this area, our team can point you in the right direction.

We give advice to UK companies seeking to raise finance through progressive schemes such as corporate mini-bonds, listed bonds and crowdfunding (via debt and equity offerings). We’ve already advised many well-known and ambitious companies, from small private businesses to large fully listed and public companies.

In fact we’ve acted on more corporate mini-bonds than any other UK law firm. So ask us about your project, and see how our open-minded, innovative and knowledgeable approach can work for you.
