It all started when...
the legal industry got too stuffy. Lawyers became too difficult to access, slow to respond and way too expensive.
It’s fair to say that lawyers don’t have the best reputation. The nature of the complaints heard are consistent: extortionate fees, confusing language and slow response times. In an agile, tech-focussed world, it seems unthinkable.
But bizarrely, it’s not. Options for low-cost, high quality legal support are limited.
The Law Boutique was founded because we wanted to bring law into the 21st century.
Law is an archaic industry, we knew things needed to be shaken up. Desperately. The way law is offered is no longer workable and so we want to drive that change to bring law into the 21st century.
We don't do law like most lawyers do - no bottomless pits of billable hours, no uncertain timelines, no aversion to technology and most certainly, no 'legalese'.
We love technology. Technology helps us to be leaner and quicker. With an AI-driven, tech-heavy back-office we are free from administrative, repetitive tasks giving us time to focus on doing what our clients pay us to do - just law.
We employ a unique commercial model that is rarely found in the legal industry. We strongly disagree with the billable hour norm commonly found in law firms as it drives the wrong behaviours and outcomes for everyone involved. Clients don’t pay for time, they pay for value. So we charge for what we deliver. No fingers in the air either. We offer fixed, affordable costs so you know your exposure from the outset.
Once we start working with you, we employ a 'project mindset'. We commit to deliverables, set milestones and offer you real transparency so you know where you stand. We keep it simple. And that makes us quicker and cheaper - about half the price in fact.
Above all, we are commercial. We understand that being a good lawyer doesn't mean stating the law in really complicated language. A good lawyer should help you achieve your business objectives by explaining what's possible, put the right measures in place to lower your risk and give you structure when you have the difficult job of making important decisions that can affect your business in the long-term. Our goal is to take the time to truly understand your business, what your objectives are and what challenges you're facing.
Simplicity, transparency and adding real value to our clients. We aim to truly partner with you to understand your needs, offer pragmatic advice and help you problem-solve by providing a high quality service that is quick, efficient and affordable.
