Farrer & Co is an independent law firm with a rich history
Building a successful business is both thrilling and challenging in equal measure, and we savour our work with entrepreneurs at each pivotal moment of that journey. We support entrepreneurs taking on funding, scaling their businesses and planning for exit.
Our clients are established entrepreneurs with successful track records of building, running and exiting businesses, as well as executives backed in management buy outs.
We advise on everything from early stage fund raising, often among friends and family, through to subsequent rounds backed by venture capital, private equity or via alternative routes, and then onward to successful exit through flotation or sale. Clients rely on us to guide them towards efficient investment structures, navigating the evolving tax environment for entrepreneurs.
Our strength lies in our ability to combine top level commercial advice across every area of your business, with an understanding of long term personal and family needs around private wealth management, ownership structures and tax planning. We see the wider picture, so you can be sure the advice you receive will be right for your business and for you.
We will support you through the life of your business, with legal expertise on everything from intellectual property and branding, to data protection, cyber security, reputation management, commercial property and employment law. We advise entrepreneurs and their management teams on complex employment issues for employers and employees, regularly supporting them with issues linked to options and remuneration, contracts, directors’ duties and governance.
We sit at the heart of a well-established network spanning the worlds of business and finance. Many of our longstanding clients have benefitted from our talent for making a connection that helps to bring an ambition to life.
