Howard Kennedy is the UK’s leading Venture Capital Trust (VCT) law firm and sponsor, having acted as legal adviser and/or sponsor in over 85% of all VCTs launched in the VCT season 2013/14.
We are the only English law firm able to act as both sponsor and legal adviser in this field.
We have taken a considerable number of investment entities to the Main Market through our wholly owned FCA authorised subsidiary, Howard Kennedy Corporate Services LLP, which has been active in the market place since 1997, listing well over 150 companies over that period.
We currently act for nine of the top ten VCT managers in terms of total VCT funds under management.
The firm was awarded the “Best Legal Adviser 2013” award by the EIS Association, recognised by the Treasury and HMRC as the official trade body of the EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme) Industry.
