Startups and Scaleups

Our lawyers have been advising startups and scaleups for over 25 years.  Our lawyers have also worked as inhouse lawyers and software developers at some of Australia’s most successful startups and venture capital funds.  

We have had the honour of being with our clients for their entire journey, starting with their first angel investment round and ending on their eventual sale, ASX listing or takeover.   

Our firm itself was a startup, and has been built on servicing Australia’s most talented minds.  Most of our clients have been with us from the very beginning and have grown with us through their journey.  

Startups and scaleups face a myriad of legal considerations, from intellectual property protection to funding arrangements, regulatory compliance, and more. We recognise that each stage of the growth journey presents distinct legal challenges, and our role is to be their trusted legal partner throughout the process.

Funding and investment are crucial for startups and scaleups to fuel their growth. We provide strategic advice on funding options, including venture capital financing, angel investments, and crowdfunding. We guide our clients through the negotiation and drafting of investment agreements, ensuring their interests are protected while maintaining strong relationships with investors.

Compliance with regulations and legal requirements is essential for businesses of all sizes to operate successfully. We help our clients navigate industry-specific regulations, data protection laws, and other legal obligations. Our goal is to ensure their compliance while minimising legal risks and potential liabilities.

At Adventum Legal, we are committed to enabling innovation, growth, and ongoing success for startups and scaleups. Through our expertise and strategic guidance, we help our clients navigate the complexities of the legal landscape, allowing them to focus on their core business activities with confidence. Our mission is to be the trusted legal advisor that empowers startups and scaleups to achieve their full potential in a rapidly evolving business environment.
