First subscribers receive 50% discount
CALGARY, Feb. 2, 2016 /CNW/ - Simplex Legal LLP ("Simplex") is launching a groundbreaking subscription legal service to bring affordable "in-house" legal counsel to Canadian companies. To ensure a clear customer voice is heard in final product development, Simplex is offering a 50% discount to a further 24 subscribers.
The product itself is quite straightforward. Subscribers choose a monthly plan scaled to the level of legal support they need. They can then task Simplex lawyers to review contracts and vet any of the other documents that make a company run, as well as help out on issues faced by various functions of the company such as HR, finance and procurement. Unused hours in a given month are carried forward for future use.
A second key feature sets this product apart from merely prepaid legal fees - subscribers get unlimited access to a Simplex lawyer over the phone, to answer any questions that might arise before something is put into writing. This powerful tool gives businesses 'around the water cooler' access to early legal opinions so enjoyed by larger companies.
"There are a couple innovations that make this product possible," says Martine Boucher, President of Simplex. "The first is the application of technology to enable secure virtual service delivery. The second is the low-overhead design of the firm. This has brought economics to us that we apply to the benefit of our clients."
"Early beta adopters are companies from all sizes and industries." continues Martine, "Many do not yet have a legal department or have one that is thinly staffed. In these cases Simplex will do the bulk of their in-house work. Others though, have existing teams and use this service as a safety valve to free their staff for priority work. We're seeing that every company has a different story!"
Subscription plans, for six hours of legal services a month start at $1,399. Beta subscribers, who are asked for candid feedback on aspects of service delivery, receive this for $700 for a six-month beta period.
