Revolutionising the way you do legal

What is Lexoo?

Lexoo operates an international network of high quality lawyers (typically ex-big firm senior lawyers) who offer high-end expertise on a low-overhead basis. We’re a team of ex-lawyers ourselves and we vet every lawyer who joins the platform. Businesses and in-house legal teams use Lexoo to quickly tender out their legal work to our network. Read more on how it works here.

Why we built Lexoo

When we were practising in “Big Law” firms, we experienced its inefficiencies first hand. Clients are frustrated with the lack of transparency and inflated legal fees, whilst deep down lawyers don’t enjoy billing in 6 minute increments either.

Technology has levelled the playing field in so many areas of our lives. Why should the law be any different? We quit our jobs as City lawyers to change this. We have a relentless focus on ensuring that all lawyers on our platform are true experts in their fields but also share our philosophy of efficiency, transparency and cost-certainty.
