Legal mentoring and advice for early-stage tech companies

Our M:Tech programme offers strategic legal and commercial advice and mentoring during the critical first stages of business growth.

Companies awarded a place on the programme will be given access to Mishcon de Reya’s Technology Group – an integrated team of more than 40 lawyers drawn from our corporate, IP, finance, tax, employment and regulatory practices, working alongside non-legal specialists in the fields of data protection, cyber security and data science.

What M:Tech offers:

  • A dedicated Mishcon de Reya lawyer for up to six months, at no cost, to discuss any legal or commercial issues as and when they arise. We will discuss and agree with you the level of support you think you'll need
  • Access to key legal documents free of charge (shareholders' agreement, employment agreement, IP assignment, standard terms of business)
  • Fees discounted by up to 50% for any additional specialist legal advice required during the programme (e.g. your next fundraising, EMI/employee incentives, data protection, cyber security, real estate, dispute resolution)


  • Access to Mishcon business and networking events designed for founders of fast-growth businesses
  • The potential for Mishcon to invest in your business, in return for a small equity stake
