A law firm that just gets IT!

Welcome to Nimbus Legal.

Specialist tech and telecoms legal services that protect and grow your business.

Legal specialists for the tech sector

Experts in Corporate, M&A, Private Equity and Commercial Contract law, we are a niche law firm making big changes to how SMEs, business owners and entrepreneurs succeed within the telecoms, technology and software sector.

Personalised Service.

Dealing with the same lawyer from start to finish, we become an extension of your team. We spend time getting to know you and your business, and we care for that business as if it were our own.

Industry Specialists.

We practise solely within the technology sector. We know the terminology, we know our clients’ services, and we channel all that passion and expertise into driving unrivalled results.

No-nonsense Expertise.

Navigating the world of corporate and commercial law can be complicated and daunting. We cut through the jargon and usual frustrations, guiding clients in a way that is hands-on and human.

Outstanding Results.

Using our unique blend of industry knowledge and private practise experience, we have a proven track record managing complex and high-value transactions within demanding timescales.

What makes us different.

In our universe, two complex worlds collide – technology and law. So, working on the assumption that lawyers are humans too (gasp) and that tech geeks pretty much rule, we’re proud to be doing things differently. Our approach is simple. We’re straight-talking and hard-working. We use our in-depth industry knowledge to understand the needs of your business, and our long-standing legal reputation to help you succeed in it.

What we do.

We wouldn’t expect you to put your company in the hands of just any law firm. As tech, telecom and software specialists, we ensure your business gets the legal expertise it deserves.

Alex Matthewson, CEO, iPinnacle Ltd

"Karen Houghton at Nimbus Legal was recommended to me by my business advisor to act on the sale of my business, and what an excellent recommendation it was!
I was very pleased with Karen and her team’s professionalism and effort to get the job done in a short time scale, and in addition, they were excellent value.
I would recommend Nimbus to anyone looking to sell their IT and Telecoms business."

Wayne Mills-Kidal, Chief Technical Officer, Fuse2 Communications.

"I had the pleasure of working with Karen and her team at Nimbus Legal to navigate the sale of my business, including the complex earn-out arrangement. As a complete novice in this process, I was fortunate to have Karen by my side. Her professionalism and dedication to meeting deadlines were exceptional, making the entire experience smooth and successful. I wouldn't hesitate to collaborate with her again on any future business endeavours. Thank you, Karen and your team, for your invaluable support!"

Phil Boniface, Founder and Director of Talking Technology Limited.

"I cannot praise Karen and her team at Nimbus Legal highly enough. When looking for a Legal team to help us to sell our company we were entering into completely uncharted waters. I was so pleased we chose to go with Karen and her team - all companies tell you how good they will be but in Karen's case it was all true she and her team really helped us navigate our way through a very complex and complicated process. They were helpful and supportive and true to Karen’s word, they were always there for us. I was very happy to have Karen and her team in our corner."

Jamie Christoforou, Tamar Telecommunications Limited.

Karen at Nimbus Legal came highly recommended to us, by our sales agents who were representing us on the sale. After a short video meeting with Karen, it became clear that we did not need to approach any other companies. For us, it was more who we could work with and who could clearly get the deal done.

We liked Karen’s fair, honest, approach, in that she would advise on the best way forward for a successful conclusion, including on what is reasonable and what is not, based on what the buyer and seller are wanting.

We were working to tight deadlines and Karen went above and beyond to ensure these deadlines were met. The result was a successful exit and a fair contract that both the buyer and seller were happy with.

We have no hesitation in recommending Karen at Nimbus Legal."

Steve Burges, DoubleEdge Professional Services Limited.

“I’ve worked with Karen for many years on various commercial and corporate matters, so there was no question that I would use her to act for me when I recently sold my business. One of the key reasons I enjoy working with Karen is that she ‘gets it’ and she understands the sector. She is straight-talking, no-nonsense, focuses on the important issues and ultimately gets the job done.”

Gavin Jones, Radius Solutions Limited.

“I would highly recommend Karen for acquisition legals. I’d engaged Karen many times in my previous company and when I moved to Radius, I didn’t hesitate to ask her to help with our legal work on several acquisitions there. There is often a misplaced desire by businesses to use large legal firms when doing acquisitions, but I’ve always found Karen to be more than a match for them!”

Erica Lewis, Diva Telecom Limited.

“We had discussions with several solicitors prior to engaging one for the sale of Diva Telecom. Karen stood out for several reasons – she has an in-depth knowledge of the Telecoms industry, a record in Telecom specific M&As, she’s confident and approachable. Her no-nonsense approach ensured a relatively smooth process and her sense of humour was a great help on difficult days."
