A NEW legal practice is combining the law and technology from its base at offices in Redditch, secured through commercial property agents John Truslove.
The growing use of new technology in legal services – known as lawtech – has accelerated vastly over the past year, with so many working from home during the pandemic.
But Aled Evans, founder of Ubique Legal believes that as well as convenience it offers clients greater transparency and flexibility.
The 34-year-old former Major, who qualified as a solicitor before serving in the British Army, is aiming to provide a growing range of specialist legal solutions through his new firm.
“We got in touch with commercial property agents John Truslove. Ian Parker at John Truslove knows all there is to know about the local commercial property market, and they have a wide range of offices on their books,” he said.
“Our offices at Clive House in Redditch are ideal for our purposes but provide flexibility and the space for us to expand as our practice grows.”
Aled had worked for an international energy company after leaving the Army last year but always wanted to run his own business.
Initially he has recruited his wife Lara to help alongside caring for their three-year-old son.
As well as preparing to take their legal practice live this year the family has been recovering from a bout of Covid-19 in November.
“It’s tremendously exciting at the moment. New technology can revolutionise the way people access the law, making it easier, providing more clarity and importantly making it more affordable,” he said.
Meanwhile, as if launching a new law firm wasn’t enough to keep him busy, Aled is also standing as a Conservative candidate in the upcoming Worcestershire county and Redditch borough elections in May.
Ian Parker, joint managing director at John Truslove said: “Ubique Legal is an exciting new venture being run with drive and imagination.
“We were delighted to help the firm find its first offices and I am sure it will be the beginning of a long relationship as it grows.”
