ABOUT BOOTLAW


As a top-tier international technology firm, our team of dedicated lawyers at Pinsent Masons are on hand to provide legal information and advise on a full spectrum of legal issues facing emerging technology, internet and digital businesses.

Our clients are both start-ups and their investors. With a wealth of experience we are well equipped to advise on any legal issues emerging companies may face.

Bootlaw is a boot camp for emerging technology, internet and digital professionals who want to learn more about the legal issues they face. Founded in 2008 by technology lawyers, Bootlaw is brought to you by a team of friendly lawyers at Pinsent Masons LLP in London.

Using a combination of legal and sector expertise, we are able to provide you with quality legal advice to help you grow the unique business you are striving for.

We understand that launching your own business can be a daunting prospect. We aim to take that pressure off by helping you tackle the legal and commercial issues often encountered in launching start-ups. We understand the financial constraints that young companies and their investors often find themselves under – we will work with you to budget accordingly.

If you are thinking of investing in a start-up – whether as an angel or as an experienced professional – we can help you with the due diligence process, with subscription agreements, share option schemes and all other documents ancillary to your investment. 

Pinsent Masons LLP runs the award winning and popular website, Out-Law (@outlawnews), which is packed with legal news and advice particularly for web companies, and HR Network TV, providing weekly videos on issues around employment law and human resources.  Pinsent Masons also sends out weekly tailored legal updates on a wide range of legal topics.

Bootlaw is organised using Meetup.com so if you would like to hear about our events you need to sign up at www.meetup.com/bootlaw – tell us who you are and what you’re up to and we’ll let you join. The only qualification you need to be Bootlawyer is to be involved in a digital business (or the digital part of a non-digital business) or just be planning to start or join one in the near future.  If you are a service provider wishing to attend Bootlaw for the networking opportunities, please speak to one of the organisers before signing up. Unfortunately, we do not admit law students.
