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.
