Harper James named top UK seed lawyers

28 January 2021 | Awards, Company news

Last year, we told you about the new virtual pitching initiative we’re supporting, The Debut Sessions. This brainchild of a group of UK investors aims to democratise fundraising for pre-seed start-ups through #DSLive, its live interactive pitching environment. The prize of a £100K term sheet from Ascension Ventures is on offer to the start-up that goes the distance.

Harper James named top UK seed lawyers

Debut Sessions have just published a list of top UK seed lawyers, sourced from the start-up community themselves. Harper James is proud that two of our lawyers – our founder Toby Harper and experienced corporate lawyer Jas Bhogal – have received this recognition from the wider UK tech community.

If you’d like to show your support and cast a vote for Jas or Toby, you can do that here. Just select your choice from the drop-down list under Vote on the voting form.

And if you’re a UK-based start-up formed in the last 18 months looking for your first raise, why not apply to pitch at the next #DSLive event? You need to apply before 17 February though. Look out for five more #DSLive events across the year.

We’re in no doubt that it’s the UK’s ambitious entrepreneurs and start-up community whose vision and tenacity will help lift our economy out of the Covid doldrums. We’re looking forward to supporting 2021’s new start-ups and those scaling up too.
