Foot Anstey Enterprise

Helping entrepreneurial businesses optimise their opportunities and achieve their ambitions.

When your business is growing, there’s a wide range of opportunities and challenges along the way. Making sure the correct steps are taken at an early stage not only saves you time, but can also help you capitalise on the opportunities whilst protecting your business against unexpected issues and risk, creating a clear path to successful growth.

We work with many businesses who are operating in fast-changing sectors including space and satellite, marine technology and clean energy-focused businesses. We have strong relationships with industry bodies and networks, including with space clusters, port and harbour authorities and marine clusters across the UK

To help you achieve your ambitions, we have created Enterprise, a new Foot Anstey business accelerator programme, focused on supporting start-ups, SMEs and fast-growing enterprises, in efforts to help protect and grow your business.

Through the programme, our team will work closely with you to guide and support you, ensuring you benefit from proactive, clear, and practical advice, tools and services for every step of the way to fulfil your ambition.


Why Enterprise?

We add value to the businesses we have worked with by giving them early guidance, not just on legal matters but also on associated commercial matters. We offer a bespoke approach and understand that individuals in each business are different, have different levels of experience and resources, so we help them to prioritise the matters that need addressing and take pragmatic steps optimise and protect their business.

The team at Foot Anstey have supported us on a number of commercial contract negotiations requiring specialist advice, including IP advice, working closely with us as an extension of our own team. We really value not only the quality of the technical advice but also the way in which they understand our business and our goals to ensure the advice is bespoke and gets us to where we need to be.

The team at Foot Anstey have been a great support to our business support programme at Oceansgate, we look forward to working with them as the enterprise zone develops.

The work that Foot Anstey has done with the businesses we support has been so valuable and it’s great to see each business benefit from their legal expertise. Having legal protections in place when they launch their product or service into the marketplace is an integral part of the sales process.

With the ambition to leverage a large and unique product development opportunity into substantial ongoing revenue, Innovolo was advised to reach out to Foot Anstey who undertook to clearly understand our challenge with significant patience before offering a perfect strategy.

Every deliverable arrived on time and flawlessly positioned, almost as if they were part of our internal team. Without the professionalism, understanding, transparency and capabilities of Foot Anstey, we would never have achieved our objective.
