Angel Attorneys

Angel Attorneys

Inspired by angel investing, we have created the Angel Attorneys program to help ensure the most promising and impactful tech start-ups survive. Selected start-ups who join the program will receive legal representation from GPS during the fragile early stages (typically, pre-seed through series A and/or B, and/or STO) and a bespoke fee plan that is sustainable for their business.

The Angel Attorneys program can provide all legal support relating to structuring, protecting, financing, developing and commercializing your business.

The scope of legal representation will be tailored to individual requirements and need for support. For illustration purposes only, the scope may cover some or all of the following:

  • Company structure / restructuring
  • Seed, VC and PE rounds
  • Innovative fundraising
  • Commercial guidance and market bench-marking
  • Term sheets and funding proposals
  • Pre and post money capital alterations
  • Prepare and finalise contracts and agreements – such as investment agreements, subscription agreements, options, shareholder agreements
  • M&A, commercial agreements; joint ventures and collaborations
  • Commercial negotiation
  • IP protection and licensing
  • Employment matters; founder service agreements; consultancy arrangements; ESOPs
  • Evaluating Fintech regulations relative to planned activities
  • Assisting license applications for regulated fund raising and market activities
  • Company structure; restructuring

Every Angel Attorneys program will include a bespoke fee plan that is sustainable for the underlying business. Please apply to join the program to discuss the right plan for your business.

What we look for in our Lawyers

Our lawyers range from mid-level to senior lawyers including specialist lawyers who are at the top of their fields. They have a range of private practice and in-house experience across a range of practices and industries. Our lawyers are highly motivated and entrepreneurial individuals who are“self-starters” and thrive in commercial environments. They possess sound business acumen and common sense - key attributes in senior lawyers. All of our lawyers undergo a rigorous interview and selection process.

Ongoing support by GPS

As GCRemote is a division of GPS, not only will clients have the right lawyers seconded or deployed into their organisation, but they also have the benefit of the following:
· access to the research and precedent data bases of GPS;
· back-up support of the partners and lawyers of GPS;
· oversight and supervision of a relationship manager.
When clients contract with GCRemote, they are contracting with GPS. For virtual and remote secondments, clients are covered by the professional indemnity insurance of GPS in respect of legal advice provided.
