For Founder and CEO Karen Finch, the story behind Legally Yours is a personal one. Karen grew up in awe of her father – an amazing entrepreneur with creativity, energy and ideas – but was devastated to watch him lose everything when he became involved in a litigation matter.
In the hope of trying to prevent other people suffering the same fate as her father, Karen pursued a career in law, but shortly after qualifying, was introduced to ‘billable hours’ – the preferred way for lawyers to charge for their services. The billable hours model is the traditional way law firms charge their clients , however this doesn’t give much consideration to a holistic view on providing an overall professional service to clients.
It wasn’t until several years later when Karen became involved in Legally Yours that she had the opportunity to help change things for the better. Legally Yours is an innovative platform designed to help give people access to lawyers who focus on value.
