Without the help of Ursula and LegalVision, there is no way that we could have launched the site with any kind of confidence. In our case, we’re dealing with copyright law and complex music licensing requirements so it’s always prudent to seek good legal advice. We are very happy with the outcome of the legal documents, most of which are proudly displayed on our website.
Nicci Richman, Director, Limespring
Ursula really listened to what I needed, went above and beyond in ensuring that every aspect was thoroughly researched, and provided the documents ahead of schedule. Even better, she didn’t speak in “legal-ease” and made the entire process fast and easy!

I am very impressed and satisfied with the quality and efficiency of the services provided by the lawyers at LegalVision. Ursula Hogben and Lachlan McKnight are really "switched-on" and have a wealth of knowledge and experience in corporate, business and online law. I now use LegalVision whenever I want legal advice or solutions.
