    Zarek Rahman

    I’m an independent corporate and commercial solicitor. I specialise in advising on tech matters and run the techlawyer.co.uk site. I love being involved with startups and disruptive tech. I handhold and advise founders from the early stages of an idea on business structures, legal viability and implementation of new products and services as well as raising funds and exits. My blog aims to demystify some legal concepts and barriers which might scare people thinking of starting up in tech.
