Who are we?

Established in 2015, Legalese is a creative legal practice which has redesigned legal services to suit creative, start-up, and tech-based businesses by making them accessible, affordable and understandable. Traditionally, lawyers are called to fix problems. Legalese looks at law differently – we have a fresh approach to law and technology, so that our legal solutions suit your business, team and culture. We are not a law firm. Do not call us when you get arrested.

We are here for one thing – to take care of your business’ legal needs so you can focus on what you do best. Our approach to legal services comes from a mix of practice in corporate law firms, years of experience in the South African creative and tech sectors, and a background in running start-ups. In this way, we speak the language of creativity and law.
