Start Ups, Investors and Venture Capital

Eversheds Sutherland represents many start-up companies seeking early stage funding, seed capital funding, angel funding and venture capital funding.

The team also represent investors and will seek to introduce investor contacts to the companies we represent.   Our approach is to add value beyond advising on legal issues in isolation and we engage in horizon scanning with our clients passing on the benefit of experiences of clients who have been on this journey already.

Our team strongly believes in relationship-building at an early stage and continuing that process right through the life cycle of a company.  We have acted for companies from start up all the way through to €100m plus exits.  We have experienced lawyers focussed on representing start-up companies and as Ireland’s only full service international law practice we can help your company transition seamlessly to global markets, whilst continuing to deal with your original relationship partner in Dublin who can deliver the global Eversheds Sutherland experience as required.

Our team will assist you with developing your business efficiently.  We can advise on all matters of law from company structure and formation, tax issues, intellectual property, employment law, shareholder relationships, investments, data protection and real estate.

As a start up you will need to act to protect your intellectual property rights and to ensure that there is a clear ownership structure in place. Without this, a future investment or ultimate sale could be jeopardised. It’s important to get these things right at the outset.

We will collaborate with you to agree a scope of work and a budget and then work hand in hand with you to deliver this.  Our professionals understand the financial constraints of start-up companies and consequently we will work with you in a mutually beneficial manner.  We take the view that if we do our job properly then when you win we will win.

Please contact a member of our team today and we can arrange a meeting at no charge to discuss how we can best assist your business.
