Calgary — Canadians have shown a lot of grit over the past year. Many lost their jobs or were forced to close their doors. But there is still a lot of hope and many are seizing this disruptive moment to launch a new business. This is why Goodlawyer is offering free legal advice to startups and entrepreneurs across the country in support of this year’s Innovation Week. Book a session here.
Innovation Week, as the name would suggest, is a week-long, Canada-wide event created by the Rideau Hall Foundation to inspire Canadians to take a chance on building a better future — for everyone. And this year, Goodlawyer is joining the movement by connecting startups and entrepreneurs with the professional legal help they need to grow their business successfully.
“We talk to Canadian entrepreneurs every day and this last year has been tough,” says Brett Colvin, CEO of Goodlawyer.
“But there is optimism too. Especially in the innovation space where more businesses are being created than ever before. We’re honoured to play a small role in helping these amazing companies succeed.”
Goodlawyer is disrupting the traditional law firm model with a platform that enables business owners across Canada to connect with lawyers who understand their legal needs and their budgets. Plus, the company offers an extensive library of free legal resources ranging from fun, educational YouTube videos to more in-depth articles and weekly webinars designed to help founders avoid common legal pitfalls.
“We love entrepreneurs at Goodlawyer, because we’re entrepreneurs too. So we decided for Innovation Week we would help them access free advice from any lawyer in our community,” says Brett Colvin.
“Too often, talking to a lawyer is a scary endeavour, and it doesn’t have to be. Entrepreneurs just need to visit the website and book using the code INNOVATIONWEEK to claim their legal advice session. You can talk to a lawyer in as little as two hours!”
Founded in 2019, Goodlawyer has quickly become Canada’s leading legal marketplace for entrepreneurs by connecting them with quality legal expertise at affordable, upfront prices.
