Venture Capital Trusts and EIS

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 75% of all VCTs launched in the VCT season 2017/18.

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 has been shortlisted for “Funds team of the Year” at the prestigious Lawyer Awards for the last two years, coming second in 2017.
