at a large US law firm, looks out from their ivory tower and spots a gap in the market.? This gap is the lack of high quality legal advice for entrepreneurs and SMEs.? Research quickly reveals that SMEs generate most of the UK’s GNP – far more than the quoted sector produces.?

The opportunity has crystallised – the delivery of top quality legal advice SMEs need within a sensible price bracket.
Our firm is up and trading as a paperless office with scope to work remotely: innovative for 2002. Our technology attracted sharp, experienced solicitors frustrated by?the major firms’ practices, processes and politics.
Administration costs cut by 50%, due to technology investment and?outsourcing strategy.
