About me

I create new beginnings for businesses and help my clients to realise their ultimate goals – whether that’s selling their business, or helping them access the resources they need to grow their company.

When you work with me, I embed myself into your transaction team and take all the ‘legal stuff’ off your plate, making sure that you feel comfortable and confident, understand what you’re getting, and know how much you’re going to pay for it. More recently, I’ve been working with emerging technology companies, such as robotics specialists and imaging software developers, and I love helping bright, young companies to reach their potential.

I’m driven to do the best work I can for every client. Once I’ve worked with a client, I won’t lose them – they’ll turn to me when they’re ready for the next stage, and recommend me to their peers, colleagues and associates.

Legal 500 - Inger Anson

Inger Anson is highly experienced, quickly gets down to the nub of the matter in hand, and helped us foresee future risks and challenges. Our deal was far from straightforward, however she was able to clearly lay it out for us and close the round across several tranches with multiple investors.

Expert investment support for early-stage tech firms

Combining understanding of the needs of early-stage tech companies and the needs of the investors they seek gives Inger Anson and her team a crucial advantage in providing the seed round support which brings the two parties together. Acting for pre-revenue firms looking for investment from angel investors, government funds and university commercialisation teams, Inger and her team are based in Cambridge but work nationally. Because they know what investors need, they can ensure that companies’ legal and investment documents are produced in a way that helps the company but also demonstrates to investors that their requirements will be met. This gives investors more confidence and faith in the founder teams and enables investment transactions to move forward faster with fewer delays. Costs are kept down and much-needed funds are provided for clients so that their company can grow. An entrepreneur and angel investor client said of Inger: “I have worked with Inger on investment deals and have found her to be responsive, knowledgeable, good value, trustworthy and a problem solver.” Her expertise also supported a start-up founder team client, who said: “I found Inger to be comfortably in command of the necessary knowledge, and good to work with. In particular, she was good at explaining which choices we had to make, and was able to guide us through the decision process.” According to another entrepreneur and active technology angel investor, “Inger is pragmatic in her approach and works hard to simplify and ease the process. She is a pleasure to work with.” Her skills and judgement won praise from a cleantech investment manager, who said: “Inger has provided excellent support and strong advice with clear explanations. Her commercial understanding is second to none and her negotiation skills are of the highest standard.”

Expert advice for angel investors

Swift, efficient and commercially-aware advice from Inger Anson  enabled a group of angel investors to back techspert.io, a healthcare-focused expertise consultancy.

Simon Thorpe, head investor of Cambridge Angels, said: “Inger and her team were very helpful and professional throughout; they were always available to answer any queries and were very quick to respond and produce documentation.”

Top Tips & FAQs

Discover my top tips

Good relationships are a key part of any transaction, so as well as making sure that your lawyer has the technical capability, find someone that fits on a personal level.

Taking advice early on doesn’t have to cost much, but it can save you a lot of time, money and disappointment later on.

This is your transaction, so be clear from the outset about what you want to achieve and when. Share your hopes and expectations with us, and we’ll have an honest and open discussion about what’s possible.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

Can you use the document I used on another transaction?

Clients often ask if I can use documents they have either found themselves or used at a previous transaction in the hope that this would save time and money.
Letting us use the tools we know, trust and have developed ourselves is where the value lies, and it is this approach that will almost always save you time and money.

How can I get the best out of my lawyer?

Keep us informed. Just pick up the phone for a chat - the clock isn't always ticking. Ask us how we can be proactive and tell us more about what you do. The relationship can be incredibly rewarding if you let us in to your business and make us part of your team.
