Our mission is to help interesting people and great businesses do more and go further.

We love innovators, and the startup struggle is in our blood. We're here to help, not just in the good times, but during the ups and downs as well.

We provide advice to innovative, clever and otherwise fantastic people and invest in long term relationships.

Capital Raising & Venture Funding

We can help get you from "friends and family round" to "Series B" with a minimum of fuss. 

If you need to find a lawyer that knows the difference between a non-participating preference and a simple agreement for future equity, we're here.


We're experienced fintech lawyers and are one of Australia's earliest and best respected blockchain experts.

We can advise on your Australian Financial Services Licence needs, or support your token offering.

Digital Security & Privacy

Content marketing and user engagement are key innovations in a digital world. 

We can help ensure that your organisation keeps up to date with privacy and user protections laws in Australia, and is ready to face down a cybersecurity threat and land on its feet.


Digital Media & eSports

Digital media isn't the future of media, it's the present of media. 

Whether you're a DOTA pro, an instagram influencer or a youtube celeb, we represent businesses and individuals throughout the digital media and esports industries. 


Technology has changed the way we all do business, and nowhere is that more apparent than in retail. 

We can help your brand negotiate everything from supply terms to marketing agreements, leases, and employment agreements. 

Consulting & Contracting

We work with innovators of all kinds, and know that innovation doesn’t just mean building AI selfie glasses for the blockchain.

When a life changing contract comes through the door, be taken seriously, and on your own terms.
