“Funeral Zone has achieved great things already, so it was a privilege to work with them to secure the investment support to pursue their international growth strategy.

As a boutique firm, we specialise in advising owner-managers who oversee all aspects of their business. We understand that they need to work with advisors who can be as intuitive and flexible as they are.”

Funeral Zone chief executive Ed Gallois said:

“We are delighted by the outcome of this fund-raising round and really appreciate the work Legal Clarity put in to make it happen. The team was not only approachable, but as keen as we were to succeed. For us as a start-up business, the fixed legal fees were very helpful - giving us that extra headway for growth. With the £1m secured, we are already moving ahead to grow the business.”
