Fundraising and private equity

Testimonials

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.
