Launch of London Law Collective

London Law Collective is delighted to announce that we have now commenced trading as a law firm regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Founded by Jo and David Farquharson, we are focused on providing legal services to start-ups, SMEs and organisations with a social purpose, providing corporate, commercial, employment, employee incentive schemes, data protection, privacy and intellectual property advice.

Both the founders have had long careers in leading and managing businesses. Jo, our CEO has managed teams and organisations (in the not for profit and charitable sectors, having first trained as a lawyer) for over 14 years. David has been a partner of law firms for over a decade, building up his reputation for giving high quality commercial and strategic advice, highly valued by his many clients.

Integral to our firm, its culture and our services are our values of empowerment, creativity and professionalism. We recruit the best legal minds and empower them to take the initiative and work quickly to understand our clients’ need to provide solutions which require nimble and creative thinking. A high level of professionalism imbues everything we do.

Equally as important is our culture that we create for our team, whether employees or consultants. We want to build an environment where lawyers can thrive, developing their skills and legal practices for the benefit of our collective.

Our website is at and contains more information about us.
