Bootlaw provides free information on legal issues facing emerging technology, internet and digital businesses and they run monthly free monthly meetings – a “bootcamp” brought to you by Barry Vitou and Danvers Baillieu the friendly lawyers at Winston & Strawn in London.

Bootlaw, by providing this free information empowers start ups with the knowledge and protection they need in an ever changing field of legalities which can be confusing and frustrating. Having help at hand cuts through the legal mumbo jumbo and they go the extra mile to provide timely and relevant advice.

Bootlaw is the biggest legal themed meetup on meetup.com anywhere in the world – and they’ve got nearly 700 members signed up to the group.

Bootlaw is a champion of the little guys and we’re very grateful for their Silver Sponsor support for us at Edinburgh.
