About Seven Legal

Starting, scaling and exiting a business is hard.

Seven Legal provides concise and pragmatic legal advice at each stage of a company’s growth cycle.

We deliver this through strategic advice and expert execution, built on advising hundreds of founding teams from incorporation to exit in the UK and Ireland.


Our lawyers have completed hundreds of funding rounds in the London early stage market from Seed to Series B. Our clients benefit from a lean team of senior lawyers who specialise in advising early stage, high growth companies.


We believe that legal advice should provide a solution to a problem, quickly and efficiently. Our focus is on aligning legal outcomes with commercial intention.


Our job is to protect and position entrepreneurs to do their very best work. We do this by providing stage specific advice and acting as an asset rather than a cost to our clients.

Bill Cogan

Meet our Founder, Bill Cogan

Operating in family businesses from an early age, Bill has always viewed legal advice as a technical skill to assist (not participate) in decision making.

He understands first-hand the work involved to build companies and has personal interests in a number of high growth ventures, in which he invests and advises on fundraising, strategy and legal matters.

Bill is a dual qualified lawyer as a Solicitor of England & Wales and Attorney-at-law of the State of New York. He completed his LLM at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law following an undergraduate at University College Dublin where he obtained a Bachelor of Business Law. 

He is a speaker at entrepreneurial programmes in London run by London & Partners, Imperial College and Enterprise Ireland.

Bill operates Seven Legal as a fully distributed legal consultancy. Centred in London, the Seven Legal team comprises of senior lawyers selected for their technical skills, commercial acumen and empathy with our clients’ needs: efficient, commercial solutions to their legal problems.
