Case Studies

Trusted Advisors

Fast growth InsurTech business

Within 18 months of an initial meeting in a coffee shop, Marlborough House assisted the client with three fundraising rounds, culminating in a Series A round with a leading London VC valuing the Company at over £20m. Marlborough House acted as trusted business advisor from the outset, advising on all fundraising matters and helping the client set up the necessary structures to build a fast growing business.


Established fast growth digital business

The client had significant traction, but was seeking to take the company to the next level and required capital and support from knowledgeable partners. Marlborough House worked with the client to find the most appropriate form of medium to long-term investment. Marlborough House managed the deal process and documentation from the client side and assisted the company to resolve outstanding issues in preparation for investment.

Project Management

VC backed share economy platform

A well-backed company with considerable market traction grew quickly and needed to resolve various tax and other organisational challenges. Marlborough House worked in house to scope the work, instruct other specialist advisors and manage the resolution of complicated issues. The outcome was the successful resolution of HMRC and other tax authority enquiries on a limited professional advisor budget, saving the company an approximate six-figure sum.

Employment/Human Resources

Established manufacturing company

The Marlborough House team was instructed by the company to provide strategic advice in respect of a proposed re-structuring and re-organisation which involved large scale redundancies and the transfer of employees to a new service-provider. Marlborough House advised the Board at a strategic level and assisted with the planning of the various procedures, including advising and supporting the HR Department with the implementation of the plans, the drafting of relevant documentation and assisting the HR Department with any issues that arose during the process.

Business Immigration

Talented and specialist individual within the Technology Sector

Marlborough House was instructed to assist an individual working within the Technology Sector to advise on, prepare and submit an application for a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Visa. Such Visas are extremely difficult to obtain, and only a limited number are issued each year due to the exceptionally high eligibility criteria. Marlborough House was able to obtain endorsement for the individual via TechNation and successfully obtained a Visa for the individual and his dependant family.

Relocation of Central London HQ and Retail premises

Household name high street retailer

A family business and investment company retained Marlborough House to manage a significant commercial and residential property development, store relocation and residential sale process in Central London. Marlborough House managed the entire development process which included: negotiating the acquisition of a new site, raising appropriate finance throughout the project and overseeing the construction team. The new store opened on time in 2015 and the residential units were all sold successfully.

Realising Value

Mature family business

A mature family business looking to exit found two potential buyers without corporate finance assistance. Marlborough House managed the negotiation, deal process and transaction documents, reducing the overall legal spend by 20% from the original quotations.
