At Flint Bishop we have a long and proud history of working with entrepreneurs and fast growth businesses. We understand the pressures faced by those who start their own businesses and, the challenges that rapid growth can bring.
Other than fill this page with generic comments about the importance of entrepreneurs to the economy and, the excitement of starting your own business, we thought we’d let our clients and partners and these case studies speak for themselves.

Working with Barclays Bank
Barclays Bank run a network of support hubs for entrepreneurs under the name Eagle Labs. In 2016 David Miller became “lawyer in residence” at the Birmingham Eagle Lab and has been working with and providing advice to entrepreneurs there ever since. David describes his experiences there in the following terms:
“It’s great to be working with the businesses at the Birmingham Eagle Lab. All of them have been identified by Barclays as potential high growth or disruptive technology based companies, which means there’s always something new to talk about and, they develop and change quickly – therefore needing responsive advisors around them. I look forward to watching these businesses grow and achieve success”.
Tim Virgo – High Growth and Entrepreneurial lead Corporate Banking – Midlands Region comments:
‘David has been an integral part of our support for and work with entrepreneurs in the Midlands Region and specifically at the Eagle Lab at iCentrum. He is always enthusiastic to support entrepreneurs and uses his wider legal experience with businesses that are further into their evolution to offer practical and value added advice to both early stage entrepreneurs and those that are already ‘scaled up’. He has made a real difference to many of the entrepreneurs we work alongside and I am delighted we have managed to have someone with David’s experience and drive to support our High Growth and Entrepreneurial strategy. His pragmatic and supportive approach is exactly what is needed and I very much look forward to continuing to work together with David and the next generation of entrepreneurs’
