In an entrepreneur’s life, access to speedy and reliable legal services is crucial. Legal solutions must keep up with the pace of a growing business and the dynamism of change. If legal solutions are not considered as an integral component of the business mix, an organisation runs a real risk of failure as a result of decisions which are ill-informed. In the case of a start-up or SME, this often means the end of an idea or a dream.

The fact is that for too long legal services have been out of reach for many SME’s and start-ups. As a result, many have gone without these essential services, often with dire long-term consequences, or have resorted to using free templates from unreliable sources from the Internet, with no guidance on use or completion.

The SchoemanLaw SME Self- Service Desk TM, scheduled to launch on 01 December 2017, aims to address this and fill the gap by providing an affordable and reliable professional solution to start-ups and SME’s. The firm is an innovative Cape Town based law firm, and is launching this disruptive technology in celebration of its 10-year anniversary.

SchoemanLaw is partnering with WECBOF on this initiative, and hopes to reach, and sign-up, as many entrepreneurs/SMMEs as possible.

The system functionality is simple and all the documents on offer have been hand crafted by a team of experts who focus on serving the needs of entrepreneurs. The user therefore enjoys all the benefits of a professionally constructed legal document or agreement without the costly price tag.
