Xavier Nicholls is our R&D Strategist here at SeedLegals. He’s helped qualify and ensure hundreds of start ups, scale ups and SMEs received their R&D tax credits enabling them to extend their runway and use them to invest further in their businesses.

A specialty of his is identifying R&D activities to ensure claims are maximised for all customers. He enjoys hearing about all the incredible products and services founders are creating and supporting them throughout the whole claim process.

Before joining SeedLegals, Xavier worked for Exacta – specialising in historical audits of business rates. Getting money back for businesses could be argued as a main hobby of his. He enjoys helping businesses grow and hearing about what they’ve done with their rebates.

When he isn’t in meetings qualifying R&D claims and letting founders know how much they can claim back, you’ll most likely find him on the terraces of Stamford Bridge cheering on his beloved Chelsea. When he’s not at football, you can find him challenging people to a game of Scrabble or chess.
