Net Lawman has launched web-based legal document assembly software, enabling individuals and small business owners to generate legal documents tailored to their requirements within minutes and without knowledge of the law.
Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/27/2016 -- Drawing watertight legal documents can be complicated and expensive, requiring expert knowledge. Despite the need for high quality documents, individuals and small businesses often do not have the budget to hire a solicitor and as a result, "go without" leaving themselves open to enormous risks.
Net Lawman's new online software produces high quality, customised documents at a fraction of the hourly fee of the average lawyer.
Customers complete a questionnaire in plain English on the website, in a similar way that a solicitor might take instructions from a client. A questionnaire takes about 10 minutes to complete. After reviewing the answers, the client can immediately download a customised legal document. The software completely removes the need for customers to have any knowledge of the law.
Document assembly software is not new. Firms of solicitors have been using it offline for many years. However, Net Lawman is one of only a handful of companies that have developed a web-based version that is available to small businesses and individuals. Moreover, the software is much more sophisticated than that of competitors.
For example, Net Lawman's online questionnaire for last will and testaments is the first in the UK that considers life interests or management options for trusts.
The software can produce documents in either Microsoft Word or PDF format. It can even complete third party forms such as those published by government departments, as well as Net Lawman's own documents written by in-house solicitors.
The company plans to use its existing large library of over 500 contracts and agreements as templates for the system. Wills are the first documents to be made available and will be followed shortly by residential property agreements and business start-up documents. The company plans to make a number of documents available for the UK first before launching the software in the other countries in which it operates, notably Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
A spokesperson for Net Lawman said, "We now have a unique service offering within our market. Customers can choose between downloading document templates for editing offline and using our document assembly software online. No other legal document provider offers the benefits of both."
