Why every business needs a digital lawyer

The average business faces eight legal issues a year and 90% think traditional law firms don’t provide a cost-effective solution. Many of the UK’s five million businesses spend thousands each year on legal fees, often for routine advice. Business managers are increasingly ‘Googleing’ legal answers, an unreliable and risky strategy.

Andrew Thornton, serial entrepreneur and barrister, explains how using Lawtech is the smart way to solve your business’ legal needs.

Andrew Thornton will be speaking in the following theatres:
