Fox Williams

Fox Williams is an independent and entrepreneurial business law firm, based in the City of London, serving a diverse client base which includes small to medium sized VCs, private investors, start-ups, SMEs and individual entrepreneurs.

Reflecting our longstanding commitment to the technology sector, our specialist e-business law group is focused on helping clients to take advantage of business opportunities presented by new and evolving technologies. The group consists of lawyers with leading edge know-how who are as passionate as you about new technologies. It is our in-depth knowledge and experience of the industry which is crucial in enabling us to deliver the responsive and pragmatic legal advice that clients operating in this sector need.

The e-business group advises on fundraisings, private equity investments, exits by sale or flotation and financing. We also advise on day-to-day business law issues such as online regulation, supplier and customer agreements, joint ventures, technology licensing and IT agreements, intellectual property, tax and employment law. In essence, the firm offers a fully integrated service through the full life cycle of a business from start-up through to exit. Many of our clients also look to us for commercial advice and assistance - and not just legal advice - which has been gained through many years of acting for new and growing businesses in the technology sector.

The group is widely acknowledged by independent commentators for its expertise and ability to work closely with clients to achieve their commercial aims. The Legal 500, an independent legal directory, has recognised our reputation and expertise in “clinching major deals for top names in the technology industry”, and in 2009 we were awarded Mid Size Technology Law Firm of the Year in the ACQ Country Awards.
