The flexible working phenomenon is set to add £148 billion to the UK economy by 2030, according to recent research by office rental firm Regus. Whilst there is no legal definition of flexible working, it generally includes initiatives such as working from home or a co-working space, hot-desking, flexi-time or even working on the daily commute.

“Joelson helped us at a crucial time in our business as we took on our first investors. They supported us with introductions, useful advice and made handling all the practicalities of relevant transactions very easy. They were friendly and easy to work with as they understand the nature of start-ups. We’ll continue working with them as we continue growing.”
