THE STARTUP FREEING UP LEGAL SERVICES
Written on the 10 December 2015 by Laura Daquino
THE team behind Melbourne-based LawAdvisor - a combination of lawyers and engineers, digital and marketing young guns knew too well that legal services are costly, confusing and difficult to access in Australia.
"It was a scary moment but I ended up refusing the deal, I wanted to create the system my way."
Bucking trends and finance, Ong still knew LawAdvisor had an intrinsic fan base - a vast number of young professionals wanting to shake tradition, and the even vaster number of people who can't access legal services.
"We want to funnel every legal search on Google and let the person find a suitable lawyer instantly, starting in Australia, but we will expand very quickly."
The founding team of LawAdvisor includes Corrs Chambers Westgarth lawyer Thomas Denehy (pictured right), IP and technology lawyer Lilian Dikmans, commercial litigator Simon McKenzie, and software engineer Jason Torres.
