About Us

Startups and SMEs need good contracts but lawyers charge crazy rates. We are a 20 person team based in London and in Lisbon, providing smart and affordable legal work that is so crucial for small companies.

How it works:

1. Startup Legal Session: Book a one-to-one oral strategy session with one of our legal specialists online.

2. Legal Report: Receive a detailed plan of what you need right now and in future stages of your development.

3. Legal Solutions: Based on the results, you are now free to make educated, fully informed and empowered decisions.

Our Values

Linkilaw is an opportunity to do something we love, which is to be able to help people. By building the company from the ground up, we have a rare opportunity to build a body that not only serves its customers and partners to the best of its ability, but also instills within Linkilaw’s employees, a philosophy where we all strive to achieve the best version of ourselves. Setting values is important to us, it enables us to align all of our decision-making with these values:

1. Honesty, Integrity, Transparency (HIT)

  • You are honest with yourself, with Linkilaw, and with others because you understand that’s the best way to build solid and lasting relationships
  • You are honest even when it hurts because no one ever solved a problem by covering it up
  • Your values and that of Linkilaw are not negotiable and you continuously uphold yourself and the team to them
  • You say things about team members you would say to their face and do not involve others unnecessarily

2. Communicate Fearlessly

  • You listen more than you speak, as listening is the most important part of communication
  • You articulate what you mean clearly, relentlessly and in a non-judgemental manner
  • You stay calm in stressful situations and value open communication over being right
  • You say what you think even in controversy, and you do so with tact and respect of others

3. Love Ourselves and Love our Customers

  • You act out of love and not out of fear, knowing that perfect love drives fear away
  • You take loving, healthy and balanced decisions towards yourself and others
  • You love your customers and seek to deliver an incredible and seamless experience of Linkilaw each time
  • Life is too short not to spread love in everything you do. You work with care because you love your work

4. Never Stop Learning

  • You always have more to learn, and you seek to improve your knowledge through everything you do
  • You seek to understand your customers, your partners and your team through eager curiosity
  • You learn as much from life as you do from books, learning to advance your personal development rather than your C
  • You learn from your mistakes and admit them promptly.

5. Efficiency

  • You make every day count by creating and delivering amazing work
  • You work smart over working hard, focussing on creating a real impact rather than flattering your ego or that of someone else
  • You work with awareness, ensuring your work creates impact and you have the judgement to make changes to increase impact
  • You consistently work hard and your teammates can depend and rely on you

6. Live with Resilience, Embrace Brilliance

  • You persevere in moments of hardship because you know excellence takes hard work
  • You challenge assumptions supported by data and facts, present and implement solutions
  • You allow and are open to whatever comes your way, acknowledging that lessons come from challenges
  • You inspire others through your self-motivation, resilience and tenacity

7. Think for Yourself, Think as a Team

  • You prioritise what is best for Linkilaw, rather than yourself
  • You seek to be efficient by first working through things yourself, and then asking others. You help your team
  • You show wisdom in your decisions, seeking to get things done rather than making things perfect
  • You know that there are no problems, just solutions and that people can always improve but never be blamed - responsibility is always collective
