Macfarlanes is hugely excited to work with Tech Nation and be a partner of the Future Fifty programme. We are a London-based law firm practising English law with a long track record of advising companies, founders and investors on all aspects of tech start-up activity, from business set-up through operational matters to raising capital and exits.
The thriving UK tech ecosystem presents significant opportunities for start-ups but the rapidly evolving legal environment also presents significant challenges for them as they grow. Our aim, in conjunction with Tech Nation, is to help UK tech start-ups navigate those legal challenges and deliver real value to their development.
In addition to advising individual companies we have connected with through Tech Nation, we work closely with the current and former Future Fifty companies through a number of initiatives in our role as the UK legal partner of the Future Fifty programme. These initiatives are aimed at tackling the most prominent legal issues facing fast-growing tech companies in the UK. and include monthly open hours sessions, thought leadership pieces and education and networking events focussed on current hot topics.
