Nowadays, everything seems to be moving so fast with the use of technology, shifting policies and opinions, and an overwhelming amount of information coming at us, thus making trusted advisors a necessity for business owners. But most people, especially small and medium-sized business owners, can’t afford the legal help they need when it’s needed as typical firm rates are simply out of reach. So, if one of your closest friends isn’t a lawyer, how do you find and access a trusted legal advisor for your business who is well-versed in the legal needs of Canadian business?
Enter Goodlawyer, an online platform that not only connects you in just a few minutes to the perfect Canadian lawyer, but also maximizes your focused time with that lawyer.
Practice areas include general business, commercial real estate, employment, intellectual property, landlord/tenant, privacy/terms & conditions, startup and more. In fact, if you’re not sure what kind of lawyer you need, they’ll help you figure it out and make the connection for you. And because Goodlawyer isn’t a law firm, they offer clear, upfront fees and access to experienced lawyers who are approachable and invested in you.
“I’ve always been passionate about entrepreneurship,” says Brett Colvin, co-founder of Goodlawyer. “We support independent lawyers with administration and marketing to streamline legal service access for the benefit of new entrepreneurs, and especially for business owners across Canada, making legal services more tenable and affordable. When lawyers are more productive, they can offer lower prices. We see this as a win/win for the market”
Another benefit for clients is the diverse range of services offered - everything from advice sessions, contract reviews, legal health checks, incorporation, stock option plans, shareholders’ agreement, employment and services agreements, trademark registration and more.
With friendly and approachable service, Goodlawyer is a business that believes in giving back in many ways. One example of how they’re helping Canadian business is through their remote advice session promotion - 15-minute blocks of time with a lawyer free of charge (normally $39).
If you are a Canadian small business that would benefit from these sessions, simply contact them via their website at www.goodlawyer.ca.
We’ve learned to do a lot more remotely during COVID, and the Goodlawyer online legal service platform has seen tremendous growth across the country. It’s comforting to know that the Canadian spirit of serving others with a friendly and helpful nature is not only alive and well,
but also thriving through our legal system.
