Our Growth business team assists entrepreneurs, startups, high growth ventures and university spin-outs, across a wide range of industries, and in particular the technology and life sciences sectors. We are ideally placed in heart of the UK’s ‘silicon corridor’ to serve both national and international businesses.
We give bespoke, solution-driven advice to help emerging and growth companies realise their potential.
We can advise you on the right structure for your current and future needs. We can assist with all aspects of company formation: including shareholder agreements, articles of association and corporate joint venture agreements.
We can advise you as you secure angel funding, and at every stage of the venture funding cycle. We can help you put in place strategic investment protection.
The need to raise more capital and float on the public market
With university spin outs becoming more dynamic and increasing in size, the need arises to help smaller and expanding companies raise the capital they need to move forward with their ventures with the idea of floating on the public market. We can help you with your admission to and fundraising on AIM.
Guarding your Intellectual Property
From life sciences and healthcare to emerging technology spinouts, we can help you protect your concepts or products right from conception to the deliverable. We can help with patents, trademarks or copyrights.
Our commercial lawyers provide an outsourced legal counsel service for your business. This enables us to provide strategic advice at every stage of your journey as we learn to understand not only what you do, but the way you like to do it. We can support you with the whole range of commercial agreements that you will need to grow – including IP licensing, technology transfers, R&D collaborations, partnering and joint ventures (international and domestic) along with data protection agreements.
Key agreements with management and employees
As your business grows you will want to recruit and retain the right employees to sustain and develop. Our employment lawyers provide a holistic service advising on recruitment issues, the full range of employment and family friendly issues, to supporting you with grievances, terminations and any claims that might arise along the way. Our business immigration lawyers can advise you on whether you need permission for an employee to work in the UK and if so how to obtain it. We ensure you get the workers you need to grow your business.
As your business grows, so too will your requirement for real estate. Whether you have a need for larger commercial premises or to expand into multiple sites, our property team can help you. Boyes Turner’s property group is one of the largest and most experienced full service commercial property teams in the Thames Valley. The group’s work covers the complete range of commercial property transactions.
