Immediate access to over 100 Legal Document Templates
But don't think this is just a template document site, like the many others that exist; this is much more than a template document site in that we provide full supporting materials to enable you to work out which legal documents you need and what other steps you need to take to properly protect your business.
Immediate access to 60+ video guides, 20+ checklists, 20+ factsheets and case studies
You also have immediate access to over 20 checklists, over 20 video guides, over 20 factsheets, case studies, the back catalogue of our monthly webinars and my Confusion Free Guide to Business Law manual – again, all of which will be hugely relevant for your business. To see a list of all of the materials, click here.
The checklists will guide you through the legal matters you need to consider and then you can go and find the templates you need and take the other steps you need to take to fully protect your business.
As far as we are aware, the Academy is the most comprehensive business law resource centre in the UK. You might not need all of the materials right now but you can rest safe in the knowledge that they are all there when you need them.

Is the Legal Academy for you?
Well, if you are a small business owner, entrepreneur, online marketer, coach, consultant, expert, practitioner, therapist, freelancer, home worker, online store owner or service provider, this programme is for you - whether you are just starting out or are quite established.
If you haven’t yet started up your business but are in the process of launching it, this is most definitely for you – we have a bonus Start Up module covering all the fundamentals of starting your business.
It is so, so, so much better to establish your business on solid foundations and build on that from the start rather than trying to tidy things up later on.
If you are daunted by trying to work out complex legal issues and how the law actually applies to your business, the Academy is a perfect fit for you.
I use my 20 years of legal experience and of having worked with thousands of small business clients to distil down for you the things you really need to know and give you real life examples of how the law actually applies to your business.
If you are struggling with understanding the legal jargon that is generally used when talking about legal issues, the Academy is most certainly for you.
There is no legal jargon used in any of the materials and I am well known for my straight talking, no nonsense, practical and relevant approach.
If you are finding it difficult to know what steps to take next in your business because you lack the confidence to weigh up the risks of a certain course of action (or because you just don’t know what the next steps are) then the Academy is here for you.
The materials clearly spell out the consequences of taking a certain course of action making it easy for you to assess the risks and decide which way to proceed.
If you don’t have the time to work out what legal issues apply to your business but equally you don’t have the resources to go to a traditional solicitor and pay their expensive hourly rates, then oh my goodness, the Academy was created for you!
You will be able to leverage my 20 years of top-level legal experience and discover pretty much all you need to know about the most important legal issues that are likely to affect your business.
You will be able to put in place all the protections you need and discover the foundations on which to grow your business at in a fraction of the price a solicitor would charge – if I was advising you on a one to one basis in relation to all of the matters covered in the programme, your invoice would be well over £20,000.
If you find the law overwhelming and you prefer to just put your head in the sand and hope that your business is structured the right way and that nothing bad happens, the Academy is absolutely 100% for you!
I regularly see the huge impact on your business, your family time and your health of not taking care of legal issues and the head in the sand approach is just not a winning strategy.
To avoid the overwhelm, I have chunked all the content up so that you will have an overview of the most important legal issues that are likely to affect your business and a clear roadmap of the steps you need to take next.
If you think that legal matters aren’t interesting and you would rather be spending your time on bringing more money in and looking after your customers, this programme is for you too!
Winning entrepreneurs like Richard Branson (who I used to work with) know the importance of taking care of the legals and building a business on the right foundations.
If you’re wondering why I’m the best person to trust to help you with all of this, here’s a bit more about me….
I have worked at the top levels with FTSE 100 clients (such as ITV) on billion pound deals, with legendary entrepreneurs like Richard Branson and at the world’s largest law firm, DLA Piper, working on multi-million pound global mergers and acquisitions.
I was runner up in the prestigious Solicitor of the Year Award at the Law Society Excellence Awards 2011 and was also shortlisted in the Excellence in Client Service Award. I was also runner up for the Lawyer magazine’s Solicitor of the Year Award in 2003, and have won many other national awards.
I have been a board director of a £100m+ turnover company and set up my own legal practice in 2010, and as a result, I am totally commercially minded and entrepreneurial in my outlook (a bit of a rarity for us lawyers…).
In fact, what really sets me apart from other lawyers is my understanding of small businesses and the matters that are relevant to them.
I have a unique ability to take complex legal issues and break them down into jargon-free, practical, relevant guidance for small business owners.
And it’s this straight-talking style that has established my position as one of the top small business law experts in the country – leading to organisations such as Barclays, headhunting me to be their legal expert on their small business site, Barclays Connector and Wileys publishers tracking me down to ask me to write the Dummies Guide to Small Business Law.
I have been featured in the Guardian and the Mail and also write for many small business magazines, such as Real Business, Business Matters, the Small Business Owner Magazine, Women Unlimited and Enterprise Nation. I am regularly interviewed on small business law, including on BBC radio. I even had my own radio show called ‘Real Life Business Law’.
In short,I know my stuff... But more importantly, I know what issues are going to be relevant for you and offer you straight forward, practical guidance.
If you are thinking “I don’t have enough money for this Academy”, well let me tell you with my hand on my heart that you can’t afford NOT to invest in this Academy
I know that as a small business owner, your resources are limited. And that is one of the overriding reasons why I have created this Academy. It is revolutionising legal services by offering the first real alternative for small business owners to access quality legal guidance, tools and resources that are affordable for every small business.
If you are thinking “I don’t have enough money for this Academy”, well let me tell you with my hand on my heart that you can’t afford NOT to invest in this Academy and start taking your business seriously.
I have seen too many small business owners come to me after the event, wanting my help to clean up a messy and expensive issue and every time I think - if only they had just carried out these few simple steps, they could so easily have prevented this issue that is causing them so much money, time, negative energy and stress.
I really don’t want you to be one of the 56% of micro business owners who will in the next year suffer a significant legal problem.
As you can see from the many testimonials, the Small Business Legal Academy pays for itself many times over and is incredible value for money.
And what value can you put on being able to sleep easily at night?
