We work on a fixed-fee basis – meaning you’ll never again be surprised by your legal bill!

The LegalVision modus operandi is simple. We operate online, which means we can keep costs down, work quickly and maintain efficiencies. Once you’ve found us online and left us your details, we will contact you straight away to discuss your matter. We’ll then provide you with a no surprises, fixed-fee quote. Once you’ve accepted your quote one of our high-quality lawyers will get to work immediately and deliver quality work in a quick time-frame.

The LegalVision team is made up of both experienced business lawyers and a dedicated back office team that manages marketing, sales, customer service and administration. We’re an enthusiastic team with a diverse background that includes ex- corporate lawyers, ex-investment bankers and developers.
