Business Advisory


Johnathan has been key to my company's success over the last few years and has been a great mentor and adviser. He has been patient in helping me understand the legal formalities that are involved with starting a company and on-boarding new staff/partners. Johnathan’s experience has been invaluable in helping us navigate the early stages of our venture

As a first time founder, Johnathan's advice from the early days has been irreplaceable. I cannot imagine I would have had a clue what to do without him. He advised us on our initial seed fund raise and again a year later when we completed a successful crowdfund. He has been a great help steering us through the complexities of the equity processes and we really value his responsiveness and commercial approach.

Anne Cruikshank of Peregrine Law was quickly able to understand our business need and deliver prompt and relevant solutions.  It was a pleasure to work with an experienced and knowledgeable professional who got straight to the point and enabled us to initiate our business with confidence that the legal framework was secure.

Experts at advising UK and international starts ups, scale ups and other SMEs on their business journey

We understand.  Peregrine Law is a start up.  Our corporate lawyers have worked for and advised businesses of all shapes and sizes all over the world.  Our team is mostly made up of partner level lawyers who have been there and done it and a lot of them also have their own investments.  We are passionate about being business enablers in everything we do for clients and working with fast growth companies whatever language they may speak or write.

We are structured in a way that gives our lawyers the opportunity to choose their pricing.  We trust our lawyers to identify businesses with potential and we love joining these potential unicorns on their journey. Our strap line is ‘more for less’ and we pride ourselves on offering City quality legal services at more accessible prices.
