Growing your Business
At Ashfords we love working with people who are turning great ideas into the next generation of businesses, and we are privileged to work with some of the most exciting growth businesses in the UK as well as some of the country's leading venture capital funds.
Our team can help your business take the next step in its growth, whatever that looks like. Our experts can advise on fundraising (seed, crowdfunding, VC, growth) through to M&A and listings, help you protect your intellectual property and brand, and navigate the quickly evolving regulatory framework concerning data privacy and consumer protection.
From speaking to founders and investors alike, we understand that access to legal expertise for new businesses can be challenging when they are striving to accomplish so much with limited resources.
Our team is committed to supporting entrepreneurs and their businesses and has developed this page to include a selection of free legal resources in the form of our Document Portal, Information Sheets and related commentary.
Document PortalOur Document Portal offers a library of legal documents for start-ups to use during the early stages of business.
Information SheetsTo help cut through the jargon on the key legal issues for growth companies, we have written a series of short Information Sheets.
The Ashfords Growth Team runs a free legal surgery, as we know that sometimes there is no substitute for talking face to face with an expert. The sessions are held on the first Friday of every month and are run in our London and Bristol offices. Places are limited and by appointment only, so make sure you reserve your place.
