Meet Eitan Stern, man on a mission to provide affordable, set-fee legal services

The idea of the traditional law firm is breaking down… It’s too expensive! Even if the service is worth it, it doesn’t matter if people can’t afford it.

Eitan Stern, Legalese

Legalese Director Eitan Stern does not look like a lawyer.

And his “law firm”, he insists, is not a law firm.

“Just to be clear, while Legalese is run by lawyers, it is not a law firm,” says Stern.

Legalese specifically services musicians, creatives and start-ups.

It aims to demystify the law, and make its services affordable.

As it’s not registered as a law firm, Legalese can avoid much regulation and, most importantly, expenses.

The beauty of Legalese is that it charges set fees, appropriate to the size of your business.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Stern for his weekly “The Science Of” feature.

Eitan Stern, Legalese

The best way to secure trust is a contract… Any contract that can be read two ways is a lousy contract… If you’re a small business… you need something solid, but you don’t need 50 pages…

Eitan Stern, Legalese

Court is very, very expensive… We see people do want to sort their differences out...
