Capital raising
Capital raising is complex

Raising capital is a crucial step in many startups’ life-cycle. It is no easy task to get investment in the first place, and when you do; the way you go about raising has enormous long-term implications for your business. If you agree to poorly drafted terms, this can have disastrous implications in terms of control of your business and the way you can run your business in the future. 


Getting it wrong can cause serious problems

Failing to implement the right arrangement for your circumstances can come back to bite you. Loss of control, poorly defined payment milestones, investor fall-outs, disputes around rights and excessive warranties can create disputes down the line, inhibit a company’s growth and its chance of raising again in the future. If done correctly, raising will be the perfect kindle to your company’s fire. If done incorrectly, you may be left with nothing but ash.


We assess your circumstances and make recommendations

UX Law are experts in the capital-raising process. We can provide you with strategic legal guidance from start to finish. Every company and investor is different, so every capital raise will be different. We’ll assess your circumstances, and draft and negotiate key documents for you, including term sheets, subscription agreements and shareholder agreements. Our goals are to:

  • Set clear and defined payment milestones
  • Minimise loss of control and maintain founder power
  • Minimise liability risk and warranties

How does this affect my business?
M&As are a huge deal financially and operationally; you need to ensure you have the correct strategy and documents ready for when you negotiate the specifics.
What can I do to protect my business?

They will have the expertise to navigate, draft and amend all the relevant documents you need in place, and they’ll align the M&A strategy with your goals.
