We know how equity deals are done and are equally comfortable advising the start-up and growing company as we are the private equity backers and angel investors.
The options for both investor and company can be difficult and it is important to use a corporate team experienced in corporate finance to advise on the issues.
The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) are encouraging investment by high net worth individuals and business angels to invest in certain ventures. We can help to ensure such fundraising is compliant and in accordance with the terms expected.
Equity incentivisation of management teams is also an important area for a business. From individually tailored Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI) options to all-employee share-linked bonus schemes we have advised on many such schemes and their successful implementation.
