Who We Are

As part of the Ignition family, we offer a uniquely joined up financial and legal proposition.

We are part of the Ignition family and a sister company to Ignition Law.

Ignition Law is one of the leading legal firms for start-ups, scale-ups and entrepreneurs. Providing the best support to that community is in the DNA of Ignition Law and is reflected in its values and in how it does business.

For entrepreneurial clients, the challenges do not necessarily come specifically allocated as legal problems or financial problems. Frequently, our clients’ projects have a number of aspects and the ability to provide coordinated financial, commercial and legal advice can make all the difference.

We have founded Ignition Financial to work closely with Ignition Law to provide our clients with precisely this joined up support.

We share Ignition Law’s approach; we are agile, cost effective and commercially driven. We aspire to the same values of integrity, decency, kindness and humility.

Like Ignition Law we have a passion for helping entrepreneurs make successes of their businesses.
