Our story

SeedLegals was founded by serial entrepreneur Anthony Rose and serial angel investor Laurent Laffy who met at a party in Rome. They'd both had enough of paying insane amounts of money to lawyers for the same legal documents at every funding round, and funding rounds taking months to negotiate and close. They decided to change it.

Fast forward six months and SeedLegals launched in 2016 as the world’s first platform that lets founders and investors easily create, negotiate and sign all the legal agreements they need to do a funding round.

We now close more funding rounds in the UK than anyone else. We operate in the UK, Ireland, France, Singapore and Hong Kong, and employ around 150 brilliant people.
