On a mission

We care about the startup climate in our region – so we gladly mentor startups, collaborate with accelerators as well as angel investor and venture capital associations, and connect startups with investors.

Every step of the way

We advise startup ecosystem players at every stage of their development, from advising on founder relations to raising additional capital to securing a successful exit. It is such a rewarding experience for us to play a small role in a birth of a unicorn or advise on a well-deserved exit.

Both sides of the story

Advising investors is just as important as advising startups. Our clients rely on us when, for example, conducting legal and tax due diligence, as well as for support in investment transaction negotiations.

We can help you with

  • Investments in startups for strategic, angel and venture capital investors – structuring the transactions, performing legal and tax due diligence, drafting underlying documentation, representing clients in negotiations and assisting on any post-investment matters
  • Advice for startups and founders while preparing for new investment rounds and while the process is taking place
  • Investment-related legal documentation templates for venture capital investors and accelerators
  • Structuring share option programs from legal and tax perspectives, preparing option agreements and option programs
  • Licenses from local financial service regulatory authorities for fintech startups
  • GDPR-related matters, drafting or adjusting terms and conditions and privacy policies
  • Transfer, licensing and protection of intellectual property rights
