In this initial high-level chat, we can provide some general guidance and assist you to formulate your needs and issues. This will help you to work out whether you need to obtain legal advice on those needs and issues.

Just pick a time that suits you, enter in your phone number, and we’ll give you a call. It’s as easy as that.

We appreciate the efficiencies that come from working with a law firm that really understands the technology market. It’s great to know that any advice we get is based on the latest market trends and norms.

Jonny Hendriksen
Founder, Shuttlerock
When you work with a range of investors on a global deal, you need a legal partner who can get the deal done. Simmonds Stewart provided the best advice which got us a big outcome.
Tim Norton
Founder, 90 Seconds
My preconception of lawyers was blown out of the water by Simmonds Stewart.
Kendall Flutey
Founder and CEO, Banquer
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have a strong partner that knows the process inside and out. As entrepreneurs we pour our heart and soul (and blood and sweat) into our companies, and to have someone fighting for us as if it were their own – that’s just awesome!

Founder, Sprout
