Friday 4th March 2022

Gordons has advised fintech start-up Detected on securing £1.5m in funding in a round led by Love Ventures.

A team led by the firm’s head of start-ups and emerging companies, Amy Pierechod, worked closely with Detected’s co-founder and CEO, Liam Chennells, on the deal.

The investment will further support Detected’s ambitious growth objectives.

Founded in 2020, Detected is a compliance API which can find and verify any registered company in the world, using just the company name and city. Companies can search and locate business credit, corporate and director information from around the globe in seconds.

Detected’s Liam Chennells said: “Having a legal partner that is able to support ambitious objectives is critical. Working with Gordons has meant that we are in a strong position with the future in mind. They are nice people too and that’s very important to me.”

Gordons’ start-ups and emerging companies clients include marketing technology platform ContentCal, which entered into an agreement to be acquired by Adobe Inc. in December 2021.
