What problem is the innovation trying to solve?

“Nearly 90% of small businesses in Ontario avoid working with a lawyer due to cost and complexity. This puts small businesses at a disadvantage to larger firms. Too often small businesses are structured improperly and use inadequate contracts, which can lead to serious ramifications as they grow.”

For complex tasks, we offer transparency and efficiency by making it easy to hire lawyers online on a fixed-fee basis.”
