Benefiting from ‘strong venture capital market and transaction experience‘, Marriott Harrison LLP provides ‘pragmatic and commercial‘ advice to a primarily investor-focused client base engaged in seed and Series A financings. Now headed by the ‘trustworthy and personable‘ David Strong following Andrew Wigfall’s departure in the middle of 2018 to Balderton Capital, the team has been particularly active of late handling work in the fintech space, including its recent work for Thrive Capital on its investment into Monzo as part of its recent £85m Series E fundraising (a deal which is also emblematic of the team’s growing presence in later stage mandates). Although the team is better known for its investor practice, Daniel Jacob provides ‘very clear advice‘ to to many early-stage companies.
