Appearing for the first time in position 43 is Harper James Solicitors, a full-service commercial law firm on a mission to make legal services more cost effective and accessible.

Having worked as the legal counsel for a leading VC firm, founder Toby Harper saw how many small but exciting new businesses struggled to afford quality legal support at critical stages of their development – and his business was born.

Based in the North East, Harper James Solicitors makes use of modern technology and modern work practices – the majority of the workforce works remotely and flexibly – to offer quality services, priced innovatively. The company works on a subscription basis, with lawyers recruited from the UK’s top firms to ensure that clients feel confident and are well advised.

With a focus on early-stage and ambitious businesses, Harper James provides advice on all aspects of Corporate and Commercial law, IT, Intellectual Property, Disputes, Employment and Real Estate.

As of 2020, more than 350 startups have subscribed to Harper James’s Enterprise model (their monthly plan), with others taking advantage of their one-off services and quarterly plans. With demand and revenue growing year on year, the business is set to continue taking the world of law by storm.

Their approach and service has proved to be mutually beneficial; clients have access to quality advice and Harper James benefits in cash flow terms, and from the job satisfaction of working with a client as it grows.

A startup business with success at its core – Harper James Solicitors is a business to watch.
