Team Legalese

Legalese is not a law firm. We are a creative legal agency which has redesigned legal services to suit the creative industry, music industry, tech companies and startups. We celebrate invention above convention, ideas above amenability. This isn’t just lip service – everything from our approach to clients and the law, to our office and our working environment reflects this. Our team is dedicated to this vision. We think creatively and may act unconventionally while still maintaining extreme professionalism and excellence. We have a fun time, keep a sustainable work-life balance and wear comfortable shoes while doing it.
