Rocket Lawyer Launches in the UK. Solving legal issues is simple—at last!

December 12, 2012

UK families and businesses can now access free legal documents and affordable solicitors online

Rocket Lawyer, the only complete online legal service, was founded in the US to  make access to the law affordable and simple for everyone. The website combines interview-driven legal documents and free legal information, with access to affordable legal advice from practising solicitors. The key to our approach is the free ‘do it yourself’ documents where, for example, a family can create a ‘will’ or a business can create an ‘employment contract’ for free on our website. Solicitors bring an additional ‘do it with me’ approach when customers cannot, or do not want to, go it alone.

Charley Moore, Founder of Rocket Lawyer says, “I started Rocket Lawyer because our legal system is broken. Our laws were created to protect us — as individuals, families and business owners — but many people don’t get the help they need because of costly legal fees and complexity.”

“At Rocket Lawyer, we have changed things by making legal services affordable, simple and available to more people than ever before. I’m proud to say that we’ve been able to build a service that millions of people rely upon.”

“We are extremely excited to announce the launch of Rocket Lawyer UK. It’s a key step towards the democratization of the global legal marketplace, helping more people get the legal help and protection they need.”

In the UK, a full 30 million adults to not have a Wills. Moreover, as a result of the economic recession, the UK has also experienced deep cuts to legal aid with nothing to fill the void.

Mark Edwards, Vice President and General Manager of Rocket Lawyer UK, said:

“We know that access to the current legal system is daunting. Increasingly people are turning to the Web to find answers to their legal problems and we are now here to provide simple and affordable help.”

“Based in Shoreditch, we’ve brought together a talented team who have built in just 9 months: creating the documents, partnering with our UK community of On Call lawyers, and organizing the launch. Our startup culture exemplifies the energy in Tech City where we work, and with the support of over 180 teammates in the US, this energy has meant we can now bring affordable legal help to families and business in the UK”
