Sweatcoin is an innovative and ambitious project making people more physically active. Browne Jacobson understood our vision and their advice was timely and commercially sound, but – what’s more important - it was geared to the realities of a start up: fast, reasonably priced and minimised overhead required from our side. The firm’s enthusiasm for working with emerging companies is very apparent.
As an ex-lawyer myself it was very important to me to find someone who not only displays great legal skills but also understands the unique challenges a start up faces and speaks the same language. We found Browne Jacobson’s financial regulatory lawyers to be very compelling, they showed a clear personal passion for what startups are doing and went the extra mile. Their performance has been impressive so far, and their approach to investing time in relationships with founders is refreshing. Telleroo is still early stage but with a great mission to disrupt transaction banking ahead, I feel in good hands when it comes to future legal challenges.
They have a clear understanding of the underlying technology and how legal matters relate to it, and are very helpful too at keeping us up to date with legislative changes.
They did an excellent job. They were always available, responsive, pragmatic and easy to work with.
