Seed Legals

Legal Services

SeedLegals are transforming startup fundraising. Say goodbye to the old days: Founders spending months rounding up and aligning investors, reams of paperwork, surprise fees and long close times. With SeedLegals, you’re driving. Easily negotiate and close your round, with step-by-step guides and live support from our legal specialists.

SeedLegals were founded by serial entrepreneur Anthony Rose, and serial investor Laurent Laffy who met at a party in Rome. They’d both had enough of paying insane amounts of money to lawyers at every funding round, and decided to change that.

Fast forward 6 months, SeedLegals launched in March 2017. Our platform cuts the time and cost to complete a round by 80%. In less than 12 months, we now help close 2 fundraises every day, making us the largest closer of startup funding rounds in the UK.

SeedLegals are also extremely proud to have been named the UKTN Best Fintech Startup, one of the Top 100 Disruptive Brands of 2017 and Best New Entrant to the UK Angel Investment Market 2018.
