We advise investors on all aspects of law concerning their investment into promising startups, including the establishment of a fund or vehicle, capital raising, debt financing and ultimately realisation of the investment through exit
Services and pricing
We understand that the needs of startups are different to those of major corporates and we tailor our offering for investors to reflect the scale, complexity and speed of startup investments.
Our services for investors cover the lifetime of the investment from the establishment of vehicles, investment of funds and following the investment through to exit.
We are well versed in venture capital style investments and we have extensive experience assisting clients to take minority stakes in businesses – we have one of the leading M&A teams in Australia and we understand the unique nature of joint ventures with, and investments in, entrepreneurial and high-growth businesses.
We understand the emerging, high-growth market – Allens is the only big law firm in Australia to have built an internal team and practice specifically targeted to this market. We are also the only law firm to be a foundation member of Stone and Chalk Fintech hub in Sydney.
