providing the ‘important but boring’ parts of their
websites such as user agreements, disclaimers, privacy

ensure their business is not only protected, but always
operating at its maximum potential by assisting in drafting
services and supply agreements, shareholders
agreements, Licences for IP, software and equipment,

position to get the most competitive price for their
business by preparing and acting on all aspects of sale.
