startup lawyers

We work for hundreds of tech startups. It’s allowed us to create tools and methods that help founders get their legal basics sorted quickly and cheaply.

Working for lots of companies also means we are now super efficient at capital raising. We are always working on deals, many of which involve international investors, including top tier VCs. In 2019 we closed 116 deals across our New Zealand and Singapore offices – that’s more than two a week. This experience is gold for our clients.

We also partner with some of the main accelerators and incubators here in like Lightning Lab and The Icehouse, so we’re familiar with the landscape and the challenges startup founders face trying to build a global business from New Zealand.

free legal guides & templates for startups

You will find lots of guides here to help you prepare for the road ahead. Legal basics, capital raising, contracts, and exit – it’s all covered.

We’ve also got loads of free legal templates to download. These are great for learning about common tech transactions, even if you don’t need to use the templates just yet.

trusted advisors for founders

Our team has learnt heaps about tech business over the years. Our startup clients get the benefit of that experience as part of the package, whether we are on the clock or catching up over a coffee.
