14 Jan Welcome to Openlegal
The legal market is changing. It’s a fact, but also an understatement.
Since I began practicing law 10 years ago, the legal industry has undergone a significant shift. Law firms once thought to be too big to fail have failed. (See Howrey LLP, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, Heenan Blaike (Canada), and most recently Bingham McCutchen LLP.)
Openlegal launches today, and our goal is to reinvent the way companies hire lawyers with flat fee on-demand general counsel, corporate, intellectual property, patent & litigation services.
As founders and entrepreneurs ourselves, we knew there was a better way to deliver legal services. Clients want pragmatic, easy-access and high-quality legal advice, and fixed, transparent pricing.
With Openlegal, we aim to create partnerships with our clients – from high-growth startups & tech entrepreneurs to established, mid-market businesses – at the earliest stages of invention and creation, and to support our clients as their companies grow.
Growing businesses need laywers. Good lawyers love solving problems. It’s a great time to be a lawyer.
