As an early stage business, getting the right advice to support our global growth ambitions is essential. Eversheds Sutherland have shown that they not only understand our business and what we are trying to achieve but also that they really understand the pressures that a relatively new business can face, and their advice and approach has reflected this.

We have acted for Oxygen Finance, a provider of early payment solutions over the last 6 years.

During this time it has grown from a business with an idea of how to disrupt the accounts payable function of an organisation, to now being a market leading early payment provider, delivering its clients a new source of income from its spend via automated processes

This has included helping Oxygen, at the outset, structure the way in which it goes to market in a manner that has made its contracting processes as smooth as possible. This is a methodology that we have continually helped Oxygen refine and improve as its business has expanded.

Eversheds Sutherland has been hugely helpful in supporting us as we have grown as an organisation, and have understood what is needed to deliver legal advice in a practical manner that fits with our business at the time.

, Smartify Founder CEO’ mission is to bridge the digital skills - and confidence - gap for parents and teachers.

Coding is the new literacy. It is on the UK school curriculum from age 5 because it is important that every child is digitally literate in an increasingly technology-driven world. Their unique teaching method introduces children as young as three to code through song, rhyme and storytelling, using the free kids’ coding App ScratchJr. Through this, children of all backgrounds and learning styles are able to code creatively with confidence. Most importantly they can have fun with code, and make full use of their bountiful imagination. also realises that a lot of adults who support children with their learning lack experience and confidence with programming, and so we make it super easy for adults to support kids as they learn – they’ve even seen adults inspired by to start their own coding journeys.

The documents ES / Disrupt provided to me were tailored and extremely comprehensive, and it was good to know that if something new came in, I would be able to get support from different specialist teams. I have a high level of confidence in ES / Disrupt and the team’s capabilities
