The BIG problem we are solving
When they have a legal issue, SMEs tell us that they find traditional law is hard to navigate, it can be a very cumbersome process to get a legal matter solved and often, full of hidden charges.
Our research shows that SMEs across the UK lose out to the tune of £13bn every year by not addressing their legal issues. Other recent market studies have shown that less than 10% of businesses in the UK believe that their legal provider is providing good value for money.
This is just not a UK phenomena, it is evident in nearly every country around the world.
We believe that great legal advice, high on quality but low on cost, is a fundamental business right.
The UK has 6 million SMEs and on average, they each face 8 legal problems every year; dealing with a contract dispute, managing changes in staffing, launching a new business or funding its growth, licensing software, leasing commercial premises and registering a trademark are common ways a LawBite lawyer, solicitor and mediator help SMEs.
Making it easier to access legal advice, ensuring it is faster and cheaper but still of the highest quality, represents a big challenge that needs a modern approach.
Technology has played a big role in successfullly transforming industries such as banking and travel with vastly improved experiences. The legal sector is on this revolutionary path, with law-tech the catalyst for structural change.
Lawbite has built a legal marketplace that democratises how law is delivered to SMEs, streamlining the connection between SMEs with a legal issue and addressed by our high quality lawyers, solicitors and mediators.
Our promise is that the LawBite experience will be:
- Easier to access expert legal advice
- Smoother and clearer to understand
- Much more affordable
LawBite lies at the heart of this marketplace with an advanced platform, combining the latest on-line tools such as the first client-lawyer app and advanced data science to make the experience more efficient, consistent and reliable. Alongside using data to anticipate client needs, the new benchmark in many leading tech services we interact with today, this means that the LawBite legal marketplace can deliver customised legal help for SMEs, but at usually half the cost of comparable lawyers.
