The Network connects UK-based General Counsels and Heads of Legal who face similar challenges in their roles as the most senior lawyers in disruptive businesses.

Our members are often the first, and in many cases, the only, lawyer, in an early-stage business. They advise entrepreneurs and venture capitalists with innovative mindsets and high risk appetites. Their businesses are undergoing rapid growth and displacing traditional markets, firms, products and alliances. They are continually confronted by novel legal issues with little precedent.

Our aim is to provide a forum for our members to exchange ideas, recommendations and best practices.

We also partner from time to time with selected third parties to organise events and discussions of particular interest to our members.
