Stibbe StartsUP, Supporting up-and-coming companies

Stibbe StartsUP

Stibbe StartsUP provides full-service legal advice to selected start-ups

The last decade has brought technological innovation at a pace never seen before. Many young businesses are spearheading this innovation, and are ready to scale up to reach the next level. This presents new and fast-evolving legal challenges, which do not always fit the existing legal framework or which provide for new implications of the existing legal framework. Stibbe StartsUP launched in 2017 as a response to these challenges.

The initiative is a two-way process, mutually beneficial to both parties. Stibbe offers full-service legal advice to help you grow your business, at vastly reduced fees – or sometimes no fee at all. At the same time, Stibbe gains additional knowledge and experience from working on these novel and undefined legal challenges that every start-up faces in its market. In this way, Stibbe StartsUP contributes to our innovation, while also providing you with access to our wealth of in-depth legal expertise and experience.

Stibbe StartsUP is looking for candidates at the forefront of innovation. We expect you to be ready to take your product or service to the next level - so beyond the initial start-up idea and ready to start making things happen.

If selected, we will offer you a substantial number of hours of free or substantially reduced legal advice: our investment in your business.

What does the programme provide?

Stibbe StartsUP has two main goals. Our first is all about you - we would like to help your start-up deal with legal issues at an early stage, allowing you to focus on the growth of your business. On the other hand, we also want to gain knowledge and experience in novel areas of law by collaborating with young and innovative start-ups involved in original and creative businesses, just like yours.
