Asia-Pacific’s fastest-growing law firm opens UK head office in Manchester

Commercial law firm disruptor LegalVision provides an innovative membership that offers businesses unlimited access to specialist, in-house lawyers

Expansion to the UK follows a decade of strong growth and success in disrupting the legal industry and improving access to services for businesses in Australia and New Zealand

A SYDNEY-headquartered law firm that’s aiming to shake up the sector with its innovative approach is setting up an office in Manchester’s iconic Express Building.

LegalVision aims to quadruple its headcount within the first year at its new base on Great Ancoats Street, building on a decade of success in its home country and more recent wins in New Zealand.

The firm was named 2022 Law Firm of the Year at the Australasian Law Awards and has been recognised by the Financial Times as Asia-Pacific’s fastest growing law firm.

The tech-driven commercial law outfit was established in 2012 by Lachlan McKnight and Evan Tait-Styles to provide an industry-first membership for businesses to access unlimited, on-demand legal services.

Mr McKnight, LegalVision CEO, said: “We’re confident our transformational approach to client experience, online acquisition and legal services will translate well all across the UK as it has done in Australia and New Zealand.

“We provide business owners and startup founders with affordable, ongoing support through our subscription-based membership.

“It means UK SMEs can rest assured they have on-demand access to a team of specialist lawyers. And we have leveraged our custom-built tech to make the client experience as smooth as possible.

“The member platform allows clients to book consultations, request legal assistance, and download legal documents and templates.

“Our award-winning membership includes unlimited document drafting and reviews, trade mark applications and legal advice consultations from experienced in-house lawyers.”

Services provided by LegalVision include commercial contracts, intellectual property, employment, business sales, data and privacy law, franchising and leasing.

Mr McKnight added: “Businesses can now have access to specialist lawyers across all sectors without the worry of racking up expensive hourly rates they would find at big city outfits or even local firms.

“With our affordable membership, there is no further expense – which is very welcome for business owners, especially those looking for more cost certainty.

“All of our proprietary technology is designed and built in-house to ensure it offers clients an exceptional experience when dealing with our lawyers. ”

LegalVision is growing 40 per cent year on year and says its membership is a first for the legal profession.

Mr McKnight revealed the UK has been a major target for a while, adding: “The British market is three times larger than Australia and there are very few tech-driven, client-centric legal service providers.

“Being the only firm operating on a membership model, we can provide an exclusive and valuable service to companies.

“Growth in our existing markets has exceeded expectations and with the way the world has changed post-Covid, we feel this is the perfect time to launch in the UK.”
