Starting your own business can be exciting, nerve-wracking and difficult. You understand how your product or service works and why it’s a game changer. Yet there are so many elements that feel out of your control:  Are you supposed to register a company and pay tax? How do you protect your interests and ensure everything is done by the book? What should you do to ensure good and sustainable relationships with your partners?

Why does a brand need Legalese?

No one is suing you, and you’re doing nothing criminal. So why do you need a lawyer? Every day, you’re entering into contracts, creating protectable property, and taking on duties and obligations under the law. Whether you realise it or not, you’re a player on the legal landscape. 

As a legal service for entrepreneurs, Legalese is fluent in the language of the law. We understand the nuances of your industry and your needs. We offer affordable, accessible and understandable legal services for startups to ensure that you’re operating in a legal, efficient, risk-averse manner, and to assist you in the day-to-day running of your business.

No matter your entrepreneurial needs, with our understanding of cutting-edge technologies and grasp of the most recent local and international law, Legalese can partner with you, offering practical legal advice and guidance on the best way forward. We offer user-friendly legal products and packages designed specifically for start-up companies and small businesses. We charge fixed fees without hidden costs which are appropriate to your business size – rather than the ever-growing amounts traditionally charged by law firms.

Our products are tailored to assist at any stage of your business journey, no matter your size or sector. We aim to partner with you from the get-go, providing information and implementation guidance so that you can avoid difficulties, liability, and costs later on.
