I started in the legal industry at the age of nineteen, my journey has taken me from small high-street firms through to international firms and top 5 corporate investment banks. Most recently I have worked with SMEs on contract drafts, contract reviews, and guidance through numerous growth stages. As an individual, I offer my expertise to PLCs for multi-million-pound agreements. My experience with PLC’s was the foundations of the subscription model. I wanted to offer SMEs the same expertise available to PLC’s and make it accessible.
The initial idea for Sole Legal Services came from my networking. Business owners would tell me that they had contracts and agreements, but nothing had been explained to them, they didn’t get the one-to-one service and the contracts hadn’t been put into context. They didn’t know how to use them and how far the scope of protection went. It was all too transactional, little communication was made with other experts and the bigger picture was not considered.
I wanted SMEs to feel connected to their expert and for the expert to understand the client, what they did, how they did it and what they wanted from the expert. PLCs will have a team of experts, but SMEs didn’t have that luxury, until now.
