Venture & development capital

We specialise in providing commercial and pragmatic solutions to meet clients' aims and are market leaders for VCT/EIS transactions, developing solutions for investors, entrepreneurs and management teams which others assume are not achievable.

Shoosmiths is one of the few full-service law firms in the VC sector to have a national presence in the major markets of London and the South East, Thames Valley, Midlands and North-West, giving our clients the benefits of accessibility, strong market connections and fresh thinking.

Shoosmiths is an active member of both the EIS Association and the BVCA and also advises clients on responses to Government consultations in the EIS/VCT arena. In terms of the EIS Association we are a member of their Tax and Technical Committee and therefore feed-into discussions with HMRC and HM Treasury on behalf of investors in order to ensure that HMRC are interpreting the EIS rules in the way that Parliament intended.
