Nicolene Schoeman-Louw - Trusted Legal Products And Services

SMEs can access trusted legal products and services from an award-winning law firm.

The reality is that legal services are often one of those aspects left unattended; there are many reasons for this. The outcome is that there is a direct connection between risk and even business failure. What is more, many businesses have resorted to using free templates from unreliable sources and where reliable templates are obtained - they are often incorrectly utilised or completed, which renders them completely useless.

The SchoemanLaw SME Self-Service DeskTM aims to address this fundamental problem and fill the gap by providing an affordable and reliable professional solution to start-ups and SMEs. The pioneering online platform hosts a range of standard legal documents forming the cornerstones of best practice. Users are allowed access to personalised support in case of any unforeseen legal incident occurring. The first solution of its kind in South Africa, the platform supports entrepreneurs to effectively establish legal foundations in their businesses for optimum growth and overall business success.

SchoemanLaw was honoured earlier this year as a Finalist in the Standard Bank Top Women Awards and the African Legal Awards for Best use of Technology and was the winner of the Gender Mainstreaming Awards for Women Empowerment in the Workplace 2018 (category unlisted companies) and WOZA Women in Law awards for fostering an inclusive environment in the Workplace 2019. SchoemanLaw was recognised due to the platform's unique ability to provide access to trusted legal resources that empower entrepreneurs and to create sustainable and scalable businesses.

The platform further addresses the need of effective management of individual needs, such as drafting your will, the management of crucial relationships in business, including employment relationships and contractors, as well as stakeholder relationships in the ecosystem, such as clients, debtors, shareholders, directors and joint ventures.
