Why choose us?

We give sensible, practical advice, at affordable rates. It’s that simple.

Many lawyers know the law very well, but most have never run a business. We’ve launched our own businesses, and have run them successfully. We bring real experience and knowledge to solve problems and create opportunities for our clients.

We only quote fixed fees for real outcomes. No charging for emails or phone calls.

Time-charging is an outdated practice. Business owners want cost-certainty to achieve real outcomes. So that’s the way we do things, and our clients love it.
