legal resources and help for companies during covid-19

our lawyers are here to provide you with practical advice through these strange times

The current Covid-19 crisis and subsequent government-ordered lockdown has thrown up many questions for SMEs to answer. Things like:

  • What is a force majeure clause and does it apply to me and my contracts?
  • What do I do if payment is due under a commercial agreement and I can’t pay?
  • How do I handle business continuity? 

Or if you’re a startup and looking to raise a round, things like:

  • Should I raise a down round?
  • What should I do about runway? Cashflow?
  • Should I consider a bridge round or bridging financing?

We’ve put together some resources below that we hope you’ll find useful. If it’s not on here, get in touch. Our lawyers are working fully remotely and are ready and able to support you through this time.

our services


It’s important to have good foundations. We can help put in place governance documents such as a constitution, shareholders’ agreement, founder documentation, and employee share option plans.

capital raising

We help with fundraising rounds, bridge rounds, VC financings, and pre IPO rounds. We review and negotiate term sheets, convertible notes, subscription agreements, and other standard investment documents.


Most tech companies are likely to exit via M&A (rather than IPO). As M&A experts in the tech space, we work with our clients throughout their life cycles to maximise value on exit.


Companies often need basic agreements to deal with the day-to-day running of their business. We can help draft these contracts like website terms and conditions, and GDPR-compliant privacy policies.​​

When you work with a range of investors on a global deal, you need a legal partner who can get the deal done. Kindrik Partners provided the best advice which got us a big outcome.

My preconception of lawyers was blown out of the water by Kindrik Partners.
Kendall Flutey
Founder and CEO, Banquer
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have a strong partner that knows the process inside and out. As entrepreneurs we pour our heart and soul (and blood and sweat) into our companies, and to have someone fighting for us as if it were their own – that’s just awesome!
