First Call: Real-time, affordable legal support for your growing business
What is First Call?
First Call has been specifically designed for start-ups and scale-ups. It gives you the legal support you need in the early stages to protect your business, ideas and plans. It provides the essential contracts, guidance and security to free up your time to focus on building your business.
First call gives your the security of an ongoing legal support service with a fixed known cost, taking away any concerns about creeping legal bills that you weren’t expecting. We understand that as a start-up business you need to be able to budget across the year, First Call allows you to spread the costs across 12 months, providing you with up to a 66% saving compared to usual legal fees*.
