Working with startups and fast growth businesses

Eversheds Sutherland is passionate about helping Tech startups, scaleups and fast growth businesses flourish and reach their potential, both locally and internationally. We tailor our advice to meet our clients’ needs for the particular stage of their company’s evolution and as they expand and grow, whether into new territories (with 61 offices globally and access to many others), new business segments, and/or through to successful exit.

We can help navigate the key legal risks and issues and will work with you to protect your business from the outset and at every stage of your journey.
