Our partner lawyers

Although Lex Start complies with all regulations applicable to law firms, we have made available direct access to traditional legal services in response to the demand of many of our clients who wanted further support. By doing so, Lex Start is truly focused on start-ups while the more traditional legal services dispensed through LexStart Lawyers can accompany entrepreneurs throughout their growth.
To meet the needs of our diversified client base we have also partnered with external firms to be able to offer a wider and more specialized range of services.
