At Sprintlaw, we’re a small team on a big mission to change legal services for businesses.
And 2019 was a big year for us.
In only our third year running, we reached more clients across the country, our team tripled and we received a number of top industry awards.
And, while our journey started off with a focus on making things easier for small businesses and startups, we’ve recently started helping corporate enterprises too.
We’re so grateful to everyone who’s supported Sprintlaw so far. Here’s what we got up to this year and what’s ahead for 2020.
We Just Raised $1.2 Million.
We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve raised $1.2 million in our first equity capital raise. Thanks to the support of a collection of strategic angel investors, we’ll be growing and developing proprietary tech solutions for the legal industry. Read the official press release here.
We’ve Spoken To Over 7000 Startups And Small Businesses.
To date, we’ve listened to over 7000 startups and small businesses from all corners of the country when they needed legal help.
Our clients range from local businesses, online businesses, international enterprises and tech startups. We’ve made access to top corporate lawyers as easy as ordering something online.
We Won (A Lot!) Of Awards.
This year, Sprintlaw received quite a bit of national attention in both the startup space and the legal industry.
On the legal front, we were crowned Innovator of the Year at the Australian Law Awards. Our co-founders also won Lawyers Weekly’s 30 under 30.
Some of our team members were also finalists in Lawyers Weekly’s Women in Law Awards.
Our Team Tripled In Size.
Almost three years ago, Sprintlaw began with two co-founders on a mission to change how legal services are done.
We now have an incredible team of 15. And we’re continuing to grow, as we prepare to roll out our graduate program for new lawyers early next year.
Unlike a traditional law firm, Sprintlaw runs like a tech company. Our legal, tech, marketing, clients and operations teams work closely each day on new products and approaches that’ll make legals easier for our clients.
Our team members work flexibly to support their work-life balance; whether it be from Sydney, Melbourne, the Sunshine Coast or even the ski fields of Canada.
Just the other week, our team celebrated our 2019 achievements with our end of year party – check us out below!
We Launched Sprintlaw Counsel.
It works like a monthly phone plan. Businesses pay a subscription fee to outsource their routine legal work to a Sprintlaw legal team — freeing up their team to do more meaningful work.
And there’s no more wondering how your legal team is running up big bills! Our fixed-fees leave no surprises, and our online portal lets you monitor how your legal work is progressing in real-time.

We Hosted Our First Event.
With interest and innovation in legal tech rapidly growing, it’s a pretty exciting time to be an online law firm. But sometimes we miss seeing our clients’ faces!
It was great to catch up with clients in July at our first Founder Conversation, as Tom Baker from coffee liqueur company Mr. Black shared the highs and lows of his startup journey.
At this fireside chat, we enjoyed connecting with like-minded business owners and experiencing the buzz building in Australia’s innovation ecosystem.
In case you missed it, a little recap of the evening is below.
We Moved To The Commons.
In February, we moved into The Commons — a creative, collaborative co-working space with offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
Our Sydney office, which is 100% powered by renewable energy, connects us with a diverse startup community that values growth, innovation and sustainability.
An added bonus: there’s a rooftop basketball court!
What’s Next For Sprintlaw?
2019 was a big year for Sprintlaw. 2020 is set to be even bigger.
We’ve got some epic plans ahead. We’ll be growing globally, further developing our in-house proprietary tech, and shaking up the way business contracts work for everyday business owners.
