Legalbuddy and CONVENDUM announce today that they are embarking on a strategic partnership journey, where the delivery of Legalbuddy’s legal services will integrated into CONVENDUM’s offerings to their members.
CONVENDUM is Sweden’s leading coworking space company and offers companies premium offices in combination with activity-based open coworking areas, lounge, conference center, restaurant, café, gym, music studios and showrooms. With this partnership, the company has taken the coworking business one step further by offering unique legal support to its corporate customers. With a large share of these customers being startups and SME’s – which often have a need for legal services but a limited budget – a smart, affordable and online-based platform of legal services is a perfect added value.
Legalbuddy is Sweden’s first online-based business law firm and have developed a partner concept for CONVENDUM where their members receive legal advice through digital services in combination with expert advice from experienced lawyers. Through the collaboration, CONVENDUM’s members get a complete in-house lawyer function directly in the CONVENDUM app – most of which completely free of charge.
“The collaboration enables us to combine our smart office solutions with meeting our customers’ need for legal advice. Legalbuddy’s service is easily accessible, online-based and to the most part free of charge. We have been working with LegalWorks Nordic – the company behind the platform – for a couple of years and have seen the strength of their business concept; to combine digital innovation with corporate legal advice from experienced professionals. The fact that LegalWorks and Legalbuddy were also among the first member companies to join us and both having their offices at our facilities in Stockholm and Gothenburg makes it even more exciting”, says Oscar Limbäck, CBO at CONVENDUM.
“I am looking forward to this partnership and to being able to offer legal assistance to all fantastic companies that are connected to CONVENDUM’s thirteen facilities in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Although we mainly work digitally, I see great advantages in the fact that we ourselves sit at CONVENDUM’s facilities in both Stockholm and Gothenburg. We lower the thresholds for legal advice through our digital services, but for CONVENDUM’s members it will be even easier to get in touch with us – they can come by and discuss legal problems over a cup of coffee in their own office”, says Joel Wickman, CEO of Legalbuddy and CDO at LegalWorks.
The collaboration starts on August 14 with a 6-month test period where all CONVENDUM’s members can take part of Legalbuddy’s advisory platform. The services that the platform contains include the following:
• Free-of-charge written investigations into legal issues.
• 30 minutes free coaching meeting.
• A database with smart online custom-made agreements.
• Free-of-charge checklists & whitepapers.
• Free-of-charge legal webinar training once a month.
• 10% discount on current hourly fees.
