NewLaw firm Sprintlaw is expanding to the United Kingdom after experiencing high growth in the Australian market.
The international expansion will see Sprintlaw expand its offerings to England and Wales in a massive step for the start-up. Sprintlaw UK will offer a suite of fixed-fee legal packages and subscriptions under a legal consultancy model to customers in England and Wales.
The tech-powered, completely online law firm provides start-ups and small businesses with cost-effective, user-friendly legal solutions and was founded in 2017. Since then, Sprintlaw’s team of expert lawyers and legal technologists have provided legal help to over 20,000 Australian businesses, the firm said in a statement.
Earlier this year, Sprintlaw raised an additional $1 million in funding from multiple angel investors, including former Smartgroup CEO Deven Billimoria, to fuel the international expansion.
Adil Khan, previously the legal network manager at Lexoo, will lead Sprintlaw UK as the company’s managing director, drawing on extensive experience in the UK legal sector.
“I’m looking forward to bringing our novel legal services model into the UK market. Sprintlaw is a unique offering that truly blends tech and law in a manner that SMEs have been seeking for years,” he said.
Sprintlaw will present UK businesses with a unique, affordable way of dealing with legal matters online, and co-founders Alex Solo and Tomoyuki Hachigo said the UK expansion was the logical next step for Sprintlaw.
“We’re excited to launch in the UK as we have in Australia and leverage our innovative tech-enabled model to help UK small businesses get quality legal services at a fraction of the cost of traditional providers,” the pair proclaimed.
“There’s a strong appetite for affordable, online legal services in the UK market. We’re already seeing significant interest from both new UK clients as well as our existing Australian clients who have a UK presence.”
