Legalese is a creative legal agency which has redesigned legal services to suit creative, start-up, and tech-based businesses by making them accessible, affordable and understandable. Traditionally, lawyers are called to fix problems. Legalese looks at law differently – utilizing modern technology and innovative thinking to tailor-make legal solutions that suit your business and prevent problems occurring in the first place. Our belief is that lawyers are best used prophylactically.
We are not a law firm. Do not call us when you get arrested. We are here for one thing – to take care of your business’ legal needs so you can focus on what you do best; your vision and your business. Our approach to legal services comes from a mix of practice in corporate law firms, years of experience in the South African creative sector and a background in running start-ups. In this way, we speak the language of creativity as well as the legalese of the law
