Inger has undertaken in the region of about 10 investment deals for me over the last 5 years, in an efficient and responsive manner. Through HCR, she has been able to assist us with various other aspects of legal work such as creating option schemes, dispute resolution and employment advice. Inger is pragmatic in her approach and works hard to simplify and ease the process. She is a pleasure to work with.

Synergy has been investing in early stage clean tech businesses for 4 years now and Inger has taken care of the legal side of the deals from the beginning. She has provided excellent support and has been available at short notice to provide feedback when required. She has an eagle eye for detail and provides strong advice with clear explanations. Inger also helps us undertake due diligence on investee companies and their founders. Her commercial understanding is second to none, and her negotiation skills are of the highest standard.
When Synergy leads an investment round, often when the start-up has little or no legal paperwork in place, Inger works with the entrepreneurs and their lawyers to create documents from scratch, and drafts them in a way that provides a fair deal for all sides. She understands the hierarchy of our priorities, between pushing the investment through in an acceptable time frame, and getting the investors the fairest deal, and manoeuvres compromise between all parties, all whilst being acutely sensitive to conflicts of interest and costs. She assesses all possible scenarios when drafting a clause, to make sure we are protected in cases of adversity, and in the long term as the start-up grows.
