Early-stage start-ups with a limited legal expenses budget need the comfort that they will get the legal help necessary to start and grow their businesses, yet traditional models of legal service delivery like law firms are expensive and beyond the reach of many start-ups. To solve this issue LawBasket launched StartAp Law. This is a legal service on-demand subscription service that allows start-ups with limited legal services budgets to get legal help from the Africa wide LawBasket network of lawyers by paying one 6-month subscription that gives them full access to lawyers on the platform.
The vision for LawBasket is to create an eco-system that nurtures African startups that are legally compliant. In April 2020, and as part of their initiative to assist African start-ups during these stressful times, LawBasket announced it would be providing free legal maturity assessments for startups. These assessments examine all legal aspects of a startup and offer practical and low-cost steps to address those issues. LawBasket also offers free consultation sessions to discuss areas of concern for startup founders. In addition, LawBasket offers free weekly checkups to follow through on the suggested steps.
‘Our job is to create happy founders, by taking care of the headaches that come with trying to be legally compliant’ – Simba Mubvuma (Lawyer in Residence at LawBasket)
