We had some gaps in our legals and we were confused with what was and wasn’t a priority. Before finding Legal Kitz and Business Kitz we were having issues finding access to quality, thorough and easy to navigate legal advice that was also affordable for a start up/small business budget. Legal Kitz provided fantastic and easy to understand legal support for our business. Both teams have been incredibly helpful and friendly. They are now our ‘go to’ for business and legal support.

Agreements created by high-quality solicitors. They are comprehensive so you don’t have to worry about it, or engage expensive lawyers which we have done in the past. I was amazed by the quality of the documents and they are very consistent as well. Companies our size wouldn’t normally have the chance to access services like these.
