A Sydney-based company that automates legal tasks is accelerating growth with expansion into the UK market, fuelled by a disruptive vision and a $1 million capital raise earlier this year supported by angel investors including former Smartgroup (ASX: SIQ) CEO Deven Billimoria
Founded in 2017 by Alex Solo and Tomoyuki Hachigo, who have won the Sydney Young Entrepreneur Award - Legal for the last two years running, Sprintlaw has developed custom-built bots to make legal solutions easier and more cost-effective for startups and small businesses.
The company has now expanded its offerings to England and Wales with the launch of Sprintlaw UK, bringing a suite of fixed-fee legal packages and subscriptions under a legal consultancy model to the market.
Solo and Hachigo saw the UK expansion as a logical next step.
"We're excited to launch in the UK as we have in Australia and leverage our innovative tech-enabled model to help UK small businesses get quality legal services at a fraction of the cost of traditional providers," the co-founders said in a statement.

"There's a strong appetite for affordable, online legal services in the UK market. We're already seeing significant interest from both new UK clients as well as our existing Australian clients who have a UK presence."
Sprintlaw UK will be led by managing director Adil Khan, previously the legal network manager at Lexoo. Khan is drawing on his in-depth experience in the UK legal tech sector, where he helped grow one of the early pioneers in the space following a brief corporate legal career.
"I'm looking forward to bringing our novel legal services model into the UK market. Sprintlaw is a unique offering that truly blends tech and law in a manner that SMEs have been seeking for years," Khan said.
