Anthony Harper’s lawyers work with emerging companies of all sizes and across all sectors to ensure their legal foundations are solid from the start.  Our clients range from individual founders just embarking on their start-up journey to highly successful, mature companies. We’re there for our start-up clients every step of the way, from initial launch to final exit, and everything in between.

Many Anthony Harper start-up clients come from the fast-moving tech sector, and are at the cutting edge of their field. Others are finding new opportunities in established markets, carving out a space for their enterprise and their big idea. But they want the same things: somebody to help them build solid foundations and ensure the basics are taken care of so they can take their vision and run with it; an experienced advisor who has walked alongside others just like them; and agile, dynamic thinking and support that is available to them when and how they need it.

Whether you’re starting a business with a view to scale, sale, or something else, professional advisers will play an important role in turning your vision into reality.

Having the right lawyer on your team from the outset can not only help you avoid complications down the line, but also be a key part of setting up your new venture for success, with all the foundations it needs to grow and thrive.
