I hear about standard legal documents for investors, is there such a thing?

8 June 2017

Hear from our corporate law expert who explains what your legal documentation should include as an early stage business.


There isn’t really a standard set of legal documentation for investors. For early stage businesses the legal documentation between the founders and the investor should reflect the needs of the stakeholder, the growth plan for the business, and more importantly, the budget.

What might be right for one business might not be right for another and things need to be considered such as the growth plan of the business, the size of the investment, whether the business is going to be self-funding following the investment, or whether further capital will be required.
