LawBite partners with Cashplus Bank to offer small businesses legal services and advice
LawBite, the digital legal service platform transforming access to legal advice, has partnered with leading fintech, Cashplus, to offer the digital bank’s small business customers easy access to a suite of legal services and guidance. UK SMEs encounter on average eight legal issues per year and lose up to £13bn by not addressing them effectively.
By using the LawBite platform, Cashplus’ customers will have access to legal advice on all aspects of running and operating a company. The platforms’ shared ethos of simplicity and streamlined interfaces represent the future of professional services for time-pressed small business owners.
This partnership will also provide access to a team of business law specialists, on hand to provide customised legal advice to help owners solve business problems. This will include advice on employment contracts, commercial agreements and corporate governance – all available in a cost-effective and transparent way.
The LawBite platform and its services remove barriers to the accessibility and affordability of sound legal advice for businesses, all while making it easier to digest and fast to access.
Nick Biggam, Commercial and Business Development Director for Cashplus Bank said; “Our purpose at Cashplus has always been to break down barriers and make doing businesses as simple as possible for our small business customers. One of the major steps in doing this is putting, traditionally hard-to-access or expensive tools in easy reach. With the help of our digitally minded partner, LawBite, we’re doing this for vital legal support for small businesses.”
Clive Rich, CEO of LawBite said; “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Cashplus and to support them and their portfolio of SMEs from across all sectors. The core values of both businesses are so closely aligned, making the partnership such a good fit. We are looking forward to rolling out our platform to the Cashplus customer base, offering these businesses with high quality legal advice that may have previously been beyond their budget.”
LawBite democratises law for SMEs and scale-ups by streamlining access to business legal advice. Our innovative platform and app provides businesses with direct access to lawyers, solicitors and mediators with the right expertise to help solve their legal issues. The unique technology that sits behind the platform streamlines the lawyer-client experience, leading to faster and more efficient processes and a better customer experience. By connecting customers to lawyers that are solely focused on client work, we are also creating cost savings that we can directly pass on to our users. This approach to legal services is offering businesses the opportunity to access the high-quality legal advice they need, without the associated overheads of traditional law firms.
Legal advice is provided via the platform by our SRA regulated law firm, 'LawBriefs’.
