who we are 

 The marketplace economy is changing the game. The days of being chained to a desk and a 9 to 5 schedule are on the way out. The most talented people are starting to play by their own rules - and we wanted to join that team. Law has been running on the same model for the last century. LawTrades is a way to bring a culture of openness and flexibility to the legal world for the first time. We want LawTrades to be the most trusted legal company on earth. Our goal?

To reach 100 million people by 2028. It’s a tall order, and we’re not going to be able to do without having the most talented people by our side. Join a group of people who craves the unconventional and wants to build something the world has never seen before, then we want to work with you.

our values

We’re pleasantly disciplined.
Building a business is hard. Building a legal company is even harder. But when your thoughts, actions and people are all disciplined and working towards a common goal, things have a way of moving forward even with the going gets tough. But we also know how to sit back and relax every once in a while too.
We talk like humans.
Call us crazy, but we like to speak in terms everyone can understand. Things tend to work out better when everyone is on the same page and knows what’s going on. No fluff. No nonsense. And definitely no legalese.
We don’t give up easily.
Billionaire Ray Dalio once said that pain plus reflection equals progress. He’s a billionaire, so we’re inclined to listen. And while no one likes pain, it’s a part of the formula for success to be sure. It’s not that we don’t know when to quit. It’s that we just don’t want to.
We’re born curious.
If curiosity killed the cat, then call the coroner. There’s probably a slightly less morbid metaphor we could use, but you get the point. We’re the kind of people who have to take apart the thing to see how it works.
We work with a smile.
A little positivity goes a long way. And a bunch of happy people working together is a better place to spend your time than a workplace filled with morose faces. It’s not always easy to stay positive, but for us, it’s worth the effort.
We know integrity is integral.
The legal world is fraught with mistrust, so we have a lot to fight again. And in order to build the first truly open and easily accessible legal system, we have to lead by example and put emphasis on our own internal integrity serious at every turn.
We have the goal in our sights.
Sure, you can travel down well-trodden paths to get to your goal. Or you could bulldoze your way to an entirely new path and create all new ways of working along the way. We’re fans of the latter, focusing on optimizing efficiency and minimizing the “that’s the way it’s always been done” kind of thinking.
