Domonique Rai-Varming

As an experienced lawyer and platform trust and safety advocate and speaker, I can offer the community unique and considered insights. As a director at a FTSE listed tech unicorn, having gone through grassroots funding with a bootlegged start-up, to a huge scale-up to IPO, I’m well positioned to help start-ups at any stage of their journey.

Legal, policy, trust and safety, and beyond are my bag. If that speaks to you, reach out.

Legal framework, documentation & Regulation
Having worked in a range of (national & international) law firms in multiple jurisdictions, I have gained experience to help companies quickly identify issues around starting a company. I have assisted two start-ups with funding arrangements from this community and I have previously owned and sold my own company.

One of my key selling points is connection. I am able to connect you with people that are well-known in the industry.

I am able to support companies in the following:
1. Connecting you to VCs/Angels (via our firm connection)
2. Providing advice from a legal standpoint – corporate/commercial as I have access to some of the best lawyers in their respective fields.
3. Providing an insight on the next stages of the start-up cycle
4. Assisting with legal documentation such as shareholder’s agreement etc.

I have been the founder of 2 companies, one was a company aimed at connecting suppliers and manufacturers together. The other business was based in recruitment. I have also worked at national and international law firms within the area of commercial litigation. I have experience drafting many different types of legal documents and I am happy to share my experiences when it comes to commercial litigation. I can help you at the information stage by sharing more information on these types of documents. This will then pave the way for you to reach out to a solicitor who can actually draft these documents. You will be gaining industry insight into the legal side of things when you are talking to me.
