What our clients say
Accelerate Law helped me throughout my time operating Alva, from commercial contracts to HR matters. Then, they massively stepped in to support me in the sale process for my business. Simon provided me with strategic advice from everything from customer messaging of the transition, to the legal support for the entire transaction. He went over and above in every way, and can genuinely say I don't think the transaction would have happened without his support. He's become a trusted friend, as well as a legal professional, and is absolutely my go to for legal questions. I have, and actively do, recommend Simon to others. Simon and Silvia are an excellent pair, and really understand what it's like to be an early stage founder. They're flexible, affordable and high quality. Honestly, there's nothing not to recommend.
We wanted access to reliable and high-quality legal services that didn’t cost the eye-watering fees of London law firms. Initially, we were looking for help with a shareholder agreement to complete our first angel funding round but Accelerate has since also helped with employment contracts, website terms and partnership agreements. Thanks in part to Accelerate Law’s work, we have been able to raise investment multiple times and grown from a tiny startup to an international team of nearly 40 people. Accelerate has an ability to not over-complicate legal work. Their advice is always very pragmatic and aims to get to a simple solution without using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I would definitely recommend Accelerate Law: it’s very easy to deal with from a process and comms perspective, legal work is always high quality and drafted in an easy-to-understand way (not over-legalled), price is always very competitive and means startups have more ready access to legal services.
Founder and CEO, Log My Care
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!
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.
