Corrs targets start-ups with new initiative

Corrs targets start-ups with new initiative

Start-ups

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has rolled out a new specialist service for entrepreneurial start-ups, which is set to provide them with “top-quality” legal support across their entire business life cycle.

The firm announced that it has launched CorrsEdge, a new online platform that will provide start-ups with affordable access to legal professionals in the Corrs network.

“CorrsEdge is a compelling offering for start-ups, giving them access to an online platform with user-friendly legal documents and the backing of Australia's leading independent law firm,” said Corrs partner Jonathan Farrer.

“We've received great feedback from clients which have been testing CorrsEdge and we have already completed a number of capital raisings using the platform.”

CorrsEdge boasts access to more than 30 legal documents across a wide range of practice areas, including employment law, IP protection and fundraisings, as well as day-to-day legal and compliance matters.

The online platform provides clients with access to legal documents, with automation capabilities that enable users to generate their own bespoke documents. It also includes simple guides to help clients understand which legal documents are relevant to their business and when they are required.

On top of this, those who use CorrsEdge are granted access to more innovative fee options for legal services.

“Corrs’ pioneering spirit positions us well to help take these companies to the next level,” said Corrs partner and CEO John Denton AO.

“It’s a mutually beneficial relationship: the start-ups receive cost-effective, first-class legal advice and we have the opportunity to work with some of the country’s brightest minds – and, in turn, help advance the competitiveness of Australia.”

This latest initiative by Corrs comes after the firm announced in September that it had entered into a three-year partnership with the University of Melbourne in the Melbourne Accelerator Program (MAP).
