About Legal123

Legal123 has helped 10,200+ Australian businesses since 2009

Legal123 is Australia’s first 100% online law firm, founded in 2009. We specialise in providing legal services to online businesses, from solopreneurs and startups to e-commerce stores and traditional companies transitioning to the online space.

We want to make legal services as ‘Easy as 123’

Our mission is to revolutionise the way legal services are delivered, making them easy to use and easy to understand. Our user-friendly legal templates, with their online video instructions and telephone support, allow businesses and individuals to access legal agreements and forms at a fraction of the cost of going to a lawyer. Our numerous free Legal Guides and infographics avoid complicated legal jargon and help explain legal concepts to everyday Australians. And if you ever get stuck, you can just call or email us.

From DIY legal templates to personalised legal advice

Our DIY online legal templates have been refined over a number of years, are comprehensive and cover most standard business situations. If your situation is non-standard, we can draft custom legal agreements for you – just contact us for a quote. And if you don’t know where to start, we offer personalised legal advice. Head over to our online calendar to book a 30-minute call.
