Every business from time to time needs finance, whether to support expansion plans or to bridge a difficult patch. Sometimes that cash is best funded internally, but at other times external finance may be the better option due to other financial commitments, investment policies or simply to obtain the best return.

Our experts can guide you through the options available and help you make an informed decision as to what is best for you, in the context of your wider business and family needs.

Whether you are looking to raise cash from existing investors, to issue new equity or to take on debt, we will help you understand the implications of those choices in the short- and long-term. We can steer you through the jargon and translate this into plain English, enabling you to focus on exactly what you want to get out of the investment. We can also steer you through the options in terms of security packages, helping you understand the potential impact on your future ambitions and how you can limit any potential risks that come with debt and equity financing.

It may be that, rather than seeking investment, you are interested in investing in other companies. In that case, we have can provide expertise across all main asset classes, helping you to identify opportunities and negotiate the appropriate deal. We also have specialist regulatory lawyers on hand to help if you are looking to set up an investment fund or otherwise need advice on the regulatory aspects of investments.

As with everything we do, we are partner-led. The Cripps Life team would be with you at every stage of the process. With one of the largest investment legal teams in the South East, we can help you achieve your objectives in a timely and stress-free manner.
