COVID-19 Advisory Group

Overview
Future Fund
Team

Acuity Law has established an advisory group bringing together specialist lawyers from across the firm to advise on COVID-19 related issues. These include:

  • Employment
  • Commercial
  • Restructuring
  • Construction
  • Disputes
  • Risk Management
  • Funding

Our expert lawyers are on hand to offer responsive, pragmatic advice to our client’s needs.

We have seen a very high demand for advice but wish to support all our clients through this very difficult period. If you have a usual contact at the firm, then please speak to him or her as normal but please bear with us if that person is busy with another client. Or you may speak to another lawyer if the matter is urgent.

With the unprecedented effect of coronavirus being felt throughout the world, we appreciate that it is a challenge for owners, investors and funders of businesses that may be struggling to make sense of the options open to them.

The Future Fund is a £500 million investment fund backed by the UK Government for high growth, UK based companies which administers convertible loans of between £125,000 and £5 million, subject to at least equal match funding from private investors.

Following the launch of the Scheme, Acuity Law have created a bespoke, two-tiered, tailored service to assist in the facilitation of the fund application, to advise on the terms of the loans and to help companies ensure that all necessary resolutions and consents are obtained.

For applications, support and advice, please contact Phil Pugh.
