Coffin Mew launches new First Call service for start-up and scale-up businesses

Posted on: May 15th, 2019

Real-time, affordable legal support for growing businesses.

After successful trials and positive feedback, Coffin Mew is excited to launch its new packaged solution to support emerging businesses called First Call. The service has been specifically designed for start-ups and scale-ups, giving businesses and entrepreneurs the legal support they need in the early stages to protect their business, ideas and plans.

First Call provides the essential contracts, guidance and protection start-ups need, freeing up time to focus on building the business and attracting investment. The cross service First Call team combines expertise from the Commercial & Intellectual Property, Employment and Corporate teams and is headed up by Andrew Jerrard and Charlotte Allery.

Andrew Jerrard, Commercial & Intellectual Property Solicitor at Coffin Mew, said: “A huge benefit of First Call is that it provides an ongoing legal support service with a fixed known cost, taking away any concerns for our clients about creeping legal bills that they weren’t expecting, it can also save up to 66% compared to our usual legal fees – helping to manage cashflow and risk in those all important first few years of growth!”

As part of the service, First Call clients will have access to:

Real-time legal advice: up to three hours telephone and email support per month, plus regular contact with the First Call team at optional quarterly catch ups.

Essential legal documents and value add-ons: including terms and conditions, a privacy policy, employment contracts and invitations to legal updates and events.

Monthly instalments and discounted rates: Our First Call clients will have flexibility of equal payments across a 12-month period, with preferential rates provided for additional support and time.

Charlotte Allery, Employment Solicitor at Coffin Mew, said: “Trying to navigate complicated contracts, protect your intellectual property and set up employment contracts can be challenging and daunting when you are first trying to get your business off the ground. Our First Call service gets the basic legal documents and protections in place from the outset and gives you legal advice when you need it most.”

“We are ambitious for our clients and our new First Call service aims to help growing businesses develop from start-up to scale-up, and beyond.”
