TESTIMONIALS

What our clients say

I had an excellent experience with Stephen Evans. He was thoughtful, pragmatic and extremely efficient.
Nadia Crandall Co-founder and Director, Capshore Partners
Stephen is excellent! He knows us very well. He knows what to look for and he knows what is acceptable and what is not
Sonia George Associate, Ascension Ventures
It’s been excellent working with Stephen, he’s made every investment round extremely straight-forward and he understands our needs completely, while explaining the legals without the legal jargon. He’s only a phone call away which keeps us reassured. Previously, we’ve had to go through many hurdles when working with traditional law firms. You don’t get that at Harper James.
Reece Chowdhry Founder & Partner, Concept Ventures
It was delightful working with Stephen and Callum on the fundraise. As an ex-investment banker, I’ve worked with many law firms and the legal process can be quite painful. We wanted to make sure our investors were protected and there were no delays with the raise. The fundraise was executed smoothly and Stephen and Callum were both very helpful. Callum was extremely bright. They both pointed out lots of things that we had missed.
Hana Salussolia Chief Operating Officer, Medisonal
Our lawyer Stephen Evans was clear, responsive and understanding throughout, and we’re extremely grateful.
Kate Jillings Co-founder, ToucanTech
I was very impressed at the service we received from Harper James and from Stephen Evans who worked closely with us during the process. As a relatively new company, having a legal services provider who could help us navigate through the process, was incredibly important.
Dr Matthew Carr CEO, Luffy.ai
We were very impressed by the efficiency of the service we received. Having strong legal service support in place is vital for any business entering into a funding round.
Alexis Rog Co-founder, Sikoia
Stephen was very helpful, pragmatic and where appropriate, entertaining. We were grateful for the way Stephen advised us in layman’s terms, showing patience to ensure we understood the transaction and were able to move to completion. I value the relationship we have developed with Harper James over the last few years and would recommend them to others.
Jon Arcos Founder & CEO, Axis Spine Technologies
Our solicitor Sarah has been fantastic, as have Stephen and Adam.
