About Legal123

Full-service Australian law firm specialising in online business

Thank you for visiting Legal123.com.au. Here are a few things you might want to know about us:

  • Legal123 is an Australian full-service law firm founded in 2009. We were the first 100% online law firm in Australia and are proud to be part of a growing movement to provide value-for-money legal services in the most convenient way.
  • We specialise in helping online businesses – startups, e-commerce stores and traditional bricks and mortar businesses moving online. Online businesses are the future and we are dedicated to helping them address the unique legal challenges they face.
  • Legal123 offers both online legal templates and customised legal work. Our templates are designed for standard situations. We also do custom legal work for clients who have non-standard requirements or need legal advice.
  • We are qualified Australian lawyers with decades of experience between us. When you’re searching online for legal help, don’t be fooled – a lot of our competitors are just “legal publishers” and not law firms. Plus they might not even be in Australia.
  • We believe passionately in making things simple, easy-to-use and easy-to-understand. We avoid complicated legal jargon, we publish free Legal Guides to help you and if you ever have a question, you can just telephone us.
  • Legal123 Pty Ltd is an Incorporated Legal Practice (ILP). We are registered with ASIC and regulated by the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner (a division of the NSW Attorney General & Justice Department) and The Law Society (NSW).
  • Vanessa Emilio is the Legal Practice Director and founder of Legal123. Vanessa is a qualified Australian lawyer with over 20 years experience and is a specialist in online businesses and Australian online law.
