ReinventED Legal Business: The Case Studies - Sparqa Legal

On 8 September 2020, CLI launched its ReinventED Legal Business: The Case Studies Series. 

Terri Mottershead, Executive DirectorCentre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific), spoke with Stuart Hohnen, General Counsel andAndrew Thornton QC, CEO, from Sparqa Legalabout how they reimagined and reinvented that business andFromCounsel before it.

FromCounsel and Sparqa Legal are two legal-tech businesses developed by a group of leading barristers and lawyers in London. They were founded on the principle that high-quality legal information and services should be more readily accessible, both within the legal profession and the wider community. Both services provide a core database of legal Q&A guidance. This format works more effectively with available search technologies than traditional legal content, and also more closely tracks the way people search for information online.


FromCounsel launched in 2016 andis a specialist, online corporate law information service that provides detailed, authoritative Q&A commentary on English corporate law.


Sparqa Legal launched in 2018 and is focused on empowering SMEs to address their own legal issues, by giving them online access to auto-generated documents and extensive expert legal Q&A guidance on issues relevant to small businesses, backed up by cost-effective options for legal advice when required. Since launching, Sparqa Legal has secured partnerships with, among others, neo-banks Starling and Revolut, and telco Vodafone.


This webinar also includes a demo of the Sparqa Legal online portal, where you can find answers to legal questions, customise contracts and speak to a qualified lawyer.
