As Buddiup expanded, particularly with its venture into the Victorian market through a license agreement in Geelong, the need for robust legal support became evident. Alistair sought a solution that could offer both reliability and affordability, addressing the intimidation and financial concerns commonly associated with legal services.

Lawpath having the fixed price work really gave me the confidence to progress with the license agreement... it was a super quick process from engagement to phone call to getting the job complete.
