What our clients say
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.
Founder, Inspiring Interns
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
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!

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.
