Founder, Wilfred’s Drinks
We initially needed legal advice for our first funding round in 2019 and have since worked repeatedly with the Accelerate Law team across our follow-on funding, EMI Scheme, various shareholder matters and commercial contracts. The team, led by Simon, has enabled us to continue to grow with trusted legal support so we could focus on what we do best! Our expectations have been exceeded throughout. We particularly recommend Simon and co for the friendly, cost-effective and comprehensive advice with fast turnaround.
COO, Jelly Drops
Accelerate Law gave us the agile, startup style legal support that helped us level up our operations as we moved from ‘startup’ to ‘scaleup’ and targeted an exit. With more and more commercial deals, shareholders to manage, and a growing team to incentivise, Accelerate Law’s flexible in-house model worked perfectly for Arthur Online. When we were being acquired by a large multinational, Simon and the team’s advice and guidance was crucial throughout the M&A process. Right from the due diligence phase, throughout negotiating deal terms and documents to completion, the team worked intensively with us to get the deal done before the new year. A great experience and we’ll see you on our next venture!
Co-Founder, Arthur Online (exited to Aareon AG)
We had a great experience working with Simon Davies at Accelerate Law. Simon understood the commercial aspects unique to VC deals. He was proactive and responsive and took a pragmatic approach when flagging legal risks and negotiating deal points. Overall the process was easy and cost-effective.
The Accelerate Law team have been BYP’s trusted advisors from the very start. From advising us on our commercial partnerships stuctures, to completing our freelance and employment agreements, to running our successful seed funding round, we get quality, attention, value for money and the guidance we need to keep growing at pace. Highly recommend.
Founder and CEO, BYP Network
The Accelerate Law team made our whole company set up and pre-seed venture round a very swift process. With their help, we were able to confidently and seamlessly close our round, kickstart our business, and onboard contractors. We worked closely with Simon, who’s fast and very approachable, and always takes the time to guide us through key terms and different options, which is invaluable to us as first-time founders. Simon is a trusted, exceptional legal partner, and we're delighted to be working together - choose Accelerate Law!
I’ve been around a few years now and in summary, you want these guys on your team (and definitely not on the other team!). Laura is a real expert who cares about your business and its success. She has gotten to know me, my team, how we work and make sure what she does reflects our own special Inspiring Interns character. A top level service from first class people who have restored my trust in working with lawyers. Cheers.

We wanted better, more practical and cost effective legal resources and that’s exactly what we have achieved with appointing Accelerate Law. In particular, the commercial contracts are simpler, cleaner, and tighter. Since working with Accelerate Law, contract disputes or issues have significantly been reduced, saving us lots of time and effort. Simon is excellent, he understands some complex issues and relationships and is very good at responding to the specific questions asked in a clear and concise manner. I would definitely recommend Accelerate Law for all the above: commercial, efficient and effective legal advice that works for our investment business needs.
Co-Founder and Partner, ABLT Investments
We have had the pleasure of working with Simon and the team as our UK lawyers, and the experience has been nothing short of exceptional. The team's UK law expertise, attention to detail, and proactive approach have been instrumental in navigating the UK legal landscape for our business. Simon's dedication and responsiveness truly sets him apart. We highly recommend Simon, Accelerate Law and appreciate the valuable partnership together.
SVP Finance, Connatix
Simon and his team seem to genuinely enjoy helping my business thrive. His Linklaters training is apparent in everything he does – he has been fierce in my negotiations, innovative in my problem-solving and most of all, has been incredibly compassionate and reassuring through key moments in my business development.
Founder and CEO, TLC
We got the silicon valley legal experience with Accelerate Law! They’re fast, pragmatic and are clearly comfortable going toe to toe with the industry big boys to close deals. We continue to receive advice with them on various complex commercial partner, shareholder and funding matters, and feel comfortable going into negotiations knowing we have ‘legal’ covered so effectively. The best thing we can say is that their support is an asset rather than a cost, and we are excited for the next steps together. Delighted to recommend to other growing startups.
The Accelerate Law team made what I thought was going to be a complex investment round seem totally smooth, simple and efficient. We have since worked together on our EMI Scheme and other commercial contracts which have all been delivered excellently with clear knowledge and experience. It has been a great experience throughout that fulfilled what we were promised initially - lawyers that get startups, know how founders and investors think, and who make things happen fast.
