Today, our expert team of writers, researchers, and editors work to provide our 4 million readers with useful tips and information, as well as running award-winning campaigns. Founders: Charles BrecqueFounded: 2020Website: legislate.techContracts. Legally binding agreements. Terms, conditions, clauses. Yaaaawn. We can feel your eyes closing….But don’t be judgy. There is a very interesting development that’s helping to revive the super-current and ever-evolving world of employment and property contracts.Based in the South East of England, Legislate makes it easy for non-lawyers to safely create, manage and search lawyer-approved contracts on no legal budget.Drafting contracts can often create friction in business. They tend to be unduly complicated, require legal expertise, and in an unstructured format that makes editing difficult. Legislate makes it easy for non-lawyers to safely create, manage and search lawyer-approved contracts on no legal budget. Legislate makes contracts machine readable with patented knowledge graph technology so that they can be created digitally by non-lawyers and queried at scale. What’s more, this innovative startup’s contract management software actually makes the contract data usable and searchable to make HR teams lives a whole lot easier.As founder Charles Brecque explains: “With Legislate, businesses can quickly answer questions like “How many of my employees who have a tenure of 3 years are on a 30 day notice period?”Changes in the way we work, such as the advent of hybrid offices, mean the need for legal documentation for employee and property markets has skyrocketed. Targeting small businesses and startups in these areas, Legislate caters for one-off users such as small landlords as well as high-volume contract creators. With Legislate, businesses can quickly answer questions like 'How many of my employees who have a tenure of 3 years are on a 30 day notice period?' Even though Brecque is a first time founder, without a background in law, he has obviously been able to argue a good case for investors. The startup raised £1M in funding from one of the UK's leading deep tech investors in its first year and recently ranked 49 in TechRound's 2022 top 100 innovative startups and tech companies.Now a (gender-balanced, even in tech) team of 12, Legalise has over 125 paying customers and two US patents.The ultimate goal? Brecque is unequivocal: “I want Legislate to be the fabric of every single contract both in the UK and around the world.” We rest our case. Legislate is proof that legal stuff can be lawfully exciting.
