Linkilaw has been listed in the UK’s top index of new disruptive businesses launched in the last five years.
The Startups 100 is the longest running annual index of its kind, ranking the country’s top 100 fast-growth potential new businesses launched in the last five years and has previously identified Deliveroo, Notonthehighstreet, Bulb, Monzo and HelloFresh.
Run by Startups.co.uk, the Startups 100 offers a diverse showcase of new businesses which demonstrate innovation, solid financials, economic impact, and the ability to scale.
The list was invigilated by a host of high-profile business leaders including entrepreneur and angel investor Alex Farrell, England and Lions rugby player and CEO Tim Rodber, Instagram influencer and small business advocate Gemma Metcalfe-Beckers (Mutha Hood), engineer, investor, and inventor Gi Fernando MBE and founder and serial entrepreneur and President of MVF Titus Sharpe.
In the words of the Editor of Startups.co.uk, Bryn Glover: “Congratulations to all of the companies listed on the Startups 100 this year. We had more entries than ever and the standard was especially high, so being included is a fantastic achievement. All of the judges were incredibly excited by the lineup this year and the obvious innovation and ambition cultivated here in the UK, even in difficult times.”
What makes us eligible to be part of the Startups 100?
With the lack of innovation in the legal industry, we’re known and seen as trailblazers. We are technology-driven, enabling us to be more efficient and get work done faster. With our use of technology, our lawyers can focus purely on legal work, allowing us to be 45% more affordable than traditional law firms. When we’re working with our clients we ensure that we use technology to streamline their business areas our legal work overlaps with.
Some would say it cannibalises our potential hourly earnings, and that’s why standard legal firms don’t do work the way we do. But we’ve never been standard. We focus on being disruptive and helping startups grow. That’s why our clients have given us an average rating of 4.8 on Google and 5 on Facebook. That’s why our clients view us as key partners. And that’s why our clients recognise us as a service provider they don’t want to jump ship from.
We’re entrepreneurs first, legals second. We were born as a startup, so we completely understand what our clients are going through. We have tailored our services to suit their needs, protecting and guiding our clients through every stage of their growing business. For some, we even offer the flexibility to be their collaborative internal legal team. Do you sometimes need a lawyer for important meetings, financial presentations or late night contract negotiations? Of course you do.
Linkilaw provides the experience of a law firm and the accessibility of an in-house lawyer, but with the flexibility that growing businesses need.
As one of the most cost-effective legal solutions, startups will find, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this award than offering for one week only (until the 10th of July), a 15% discount on any legal service!
