The How and the Why.
Tend Legal was founded in 2020 by Alistair and Shona Wells. Our mission is simple: to build a better, more human, less formal legal experience for start-ups and scale-ups.
Here are some of the ways we seek to achieve that:
Law is about relationships: the relationship between you and your co-founders, investors, customers, suppliers, employees and the state. The relationship between you and us. Between the members of our team. Everything we do is aimed at helping you keep those relationships healthy and profitable. It’s all about people.
We’re in this for the long-haul; we’ll be by your side from starting up to selling up and everything in between. With our innovative subscription model, we become your external in-house legal team, ready to help whenever you need us, driving your growth. Find out more about our range of expertise.
We communicate like normal humans. We break down complexity and identify risk, making sure you’re properly protected without holding things up.
We’re a remote-first law firm. No large offices and overheads – enjoy the flexibility of a remote legal team accessible on the go, wherever you are.
Not every transaction needs to be a battle. We take a sensible approach to risk, working collaboratively with you and other lawyers to get the job done.
We use technology wherever possible to cut out mindless admin, freeing us up to focus on the important work of helping you grow your business. You won’t have to sign a document and post it back to us when you can e-sign it. Or show up at our offices with your ID when we can onboard you through our online platform.
We’ll collaborate in a way that suits you. Want a dedicated legal Slack channel? A contracts database? An online tool to track your legal projects? No problem.
We know you hate paying for time. It doesn’t make much sense to us either. We’ll give you a fixed price for your project, and we’ll stick to it. We also offer innovative subscription packages tailored to your needs, so you have complete certainty on legal spend. Find out more
