Our partner lawyers

Although Lex Start is already a law firm, we set up another law firm, more traditional, in response to the demand of many of our clients who wanted further support. Therefore, Lex Start is truly focused on start-up while LexStart Lawyers can accompany entrepreneurs throughout their growth. However, we are a small team and in order to be able to offer a wider and more specialized range of services in certain areas, we have partnered with external firms.
