What the team is known for

Highly rated practice which works with both venture capital investors and growing businesses at all stages of startup development. Noted for its expertise across all aspects of formation and financing, as well as for its strength in a range of corporate matters. Particularly active advising fintech and technology startups, with clients benefiting from the firm's well-respected TMT group.

Strengths

Clients remark upon the firm's ability to advise on VC deals: "Many lawyers find it hard to understand trends in VC. Some big firms are not malleable as they are too traditional and don't meet our needs; Pinsent Masons, however, are a great fit for VC work."

Another client appreciates the "quality and responsiveness" of the team's lawyers, with other interviewees also noting that "their turnaround time is phenomenal."

Work highlights

Advised Cento Ventures on its USD52 million Series E investment into 2c2p, a Singapore-headquartered global payments platform.
