Why our clients choose us
“We enlisted Simon’s help on a vital contract negotiation with a potential partner. We were initially looking for some tactical help and wanted someone who could sit on our side of the fence. Simon has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He’s measured, calm, detail orientated but, most importantly from our perspective, practical and focused on getting the job done. I’d highly recommend him.” – Hamish Grierson, Co-Founder and CEO
“Simon continues to guide us through the legal establishment of our international business set-up. He has partnered with me in negotiating and drafting commercial agreements, managing complex legal processes, brokering deals with larger firms, and providing commercial opinion. He always delivers quality work in a condensed timeframe and regularly saves us large amounts of money in the process.” – Jeremy Dale, CEO. Former CVP Retail Sales & Marketing for Microsoft.
“Simon is someone you want on your team. He gets into the real depths of my business, adapts his approach to how I like to work and is highly reliable and trustworthy. This is a top level service at competitive rates and having experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of the legal profession, this is a breath of fresh air.” Ben Rosen, Founder and CEO
“The Accelerate team are great listeners. In all my dealings with them (both in resolving a dispute and preparing my documents) they have shown a strong understanding of the commercial drivers behind my business and take a personal interest in solving problems for me. Actually, they seem to enjoy the work and it shows in the results.” – Betty Encinalez, Founder and CEO

Highly recommend.” – Kike Oniwinde, Founder and CEO
