Partner with us on your angel investment journey, right through from applying for SEIS and EIS advance assurance, to sharing your term sheet, to signing investment agreements and closing your round. We provide strategic advice to structure our clients’ angel rounds in a way that achieves their funding and operational objectives, and that ensures compliance with SEIS and EIS regulations. This is particularly relevant when raising through convertible instruments such as Advanced Subscription Agreements (UK) and SAFEs (US)).
We know fundraising can be like a full-time job for founders, and our role supports them in ensuring that their fundraising processes are smooth, stress-free and conducted professionally throughout. Equally, our role goes beyond just funding; it’s about establishing a trusted partnership that can and does last throughout a startup lifecycle and through to exit. Typically, after a funding round, we work closely with clients on startup employment law matters, establishing EMI Schemes, and the terms of service required to launch a commercial product to market.
Our commitment is to support startups in securing angel investments efficiently, fueling their expansion, and creating opportunities for investors to engage with promising ventures. We cater to pre-seed, seed-stage startups, Series A ventures, and beyond, providing comprehensive support in raising capital. Our expertise also extends to UK crowdfunding platforms, where we guide startups through the crowdfunding process, with particular experience on platforms such as Seedrs and Crowdcube.
Whether you're a founder seeking angel investors or an angel investor looking to back innovative businesses, Accelerate Law is your trusted legal partner on the journey to closing deals successfully and building long-term success with strong legal foundations.

As an early stage investor and incubator, we need entrepreneurial, solutions-focused legal providers who have a deep startup understanding and help us grow our investment business. Accelerate Law give us this in a highly flexible, efficient and approachable way.
Managing Partner, EarlyMarket
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 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.

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.
