After acquiring a wealth of experience and knowledge in the sector, Nigel Greenaway wanted to do away with the typical frustrations clients experience when instructing solicitors, and create a law firm run like a commercial business – with a focus on client satisfaction.                                     

Tailored towards fast-growth life science and technology companies, which are either acquisitive or looking to raise funds, Greenaway Scott is a business advisory law firm which charges fixed fees and aims to treat its clients fairly at every stage of the process. And as a limited company instead of a partnership, the firm can avoid the usual politics that hamper the decision making process.

The firm sees that a member of the legal team spends time on site with clients to gain an in-depth knowledge of their businesses, and employs a commercial team that are dual qualified in law, and either maths or science, so that everyone is “speaking the same language”.

With just over two years of solid trading, Cardiff-based Greenaway Scott is looking to expand over the next 12 months, targeting tech hubs along the M4 corridor and elsewhere, and has plans to acquire small, specialist firms that share its ideal to offer complementary services. With a belief that lawyers who understand their clients' needs are far more useful than the “standard arms length third party advisory model”, this unique law start-up looks set to have a big impact on the sector in the near future.
