Doorway Capital is an approved non-lawyer owner of, and equity investor in, firms of solicitors. Our approval by the SRA to invest directly in law firms that hold, or will hold, an ABS licence means we can act as a corporate member of a LLP or, provided that our shareholding will not be less than 12%, an ordinary shareholder of a limited company. An equity investment from Doorway Capital should be of real interest to a law firm looking for a partner to help finance acquisitions and/or steady organic growth without them having to rely on internally generated earnings or their partners own capital.
Founder, Doorway Capital
Simpson Millar has worked very closely with Doorway Capital since the issues with the firm’s former owners, Fairpoint Group plc, started to emerge in 2017. We have been on a journey from that point through to Doorway taking an equity interest in the firm with SRA approval. I have found the engagement with the Doorway team to be absolutely first class.
Greg Cox, Simpson Millar
I first came to know Doorway Capital when considering alternative finance to support the working capital needs of Simpson Millar. As the relationship formed, it became apparent that Doorway Capital could offer much more than asset-based lending products, and had both the appetite and technical knowledge to create bespoke funding solutions, straddling debt and equity, to address some complex financial challenges.
