What our SaaS and Technology clients say
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 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.
Founder and CEO, Paperplanes
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!
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!
