Our team of employment law and HR experts understand that startups require a unique approach to employment, whether you're building your dream team or working through the intricacies of ongoing employment queries.
Our services encompass a wide range of employment law matters. We're here to help you draft employment contracts (full-time, part-time, fixed term, weighted hours and more), settlement agreements, employee handbooks and policies, and offer expert guidance on getting processes right, particularly disciplinary processes, dismissals and redundancies. As your trusted partners, we advise on building teams successfully, ensuring compliance with employment laws, communicating clearly with team members, and addressing employee disputes and terminations easily and hassle-free.
Whilst ideally employees drive success, this is not always the case, and we represent clients looking to extricate themselves from challenging employment scenarios, such as with underperforming or absent employees. We provide practical, tailored end-to-end solutions that align with your business's objectives and growth strategies.
Choose Accelerate Law to be your go-to resource for managing your team with confidence, so you can focus on what truly matters—building a thriving, successful startup.

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.
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 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.

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!
