Our story

About us

We're disruptors but the good kind

Like the startups and entrepreneurs we work with, we're breaking away from tradition by changing the way businesses seek and receive legal advice. With us there are no surprises, just simple, stress-free advice that empowers you to make the right decisions for your business.

Our values

UX stands for User Experience. It refers to a process of enhancing user satisfaction with a product by improving the usability and accessibility of that product.

The traditional user experience of dealing with law firms is generally extremely poor. Law firms neglect and exploit clients with long turnaround times and with inflexible and oppressive billing methods. They provide very reactive advice which is hard to understand and often fails to consider commercial implications. All in all, this has meant clients approach their lawyers only as a last resort.

UX Law is here to change that. We want to improve the user experience by staying client-centric and solving these common complaints. We believe in being:

1

Proactive

Offering proactive advice, aimed at preventing a problem rather than just cleaning up the mess afterwards (this is where the value lies).

2

Practical

Providing practical advice in plain language, which prioritises your commercial considerations.

3

Transparent

Agreeing to fixed fees, which gives you security and forces us to work efficiently (no one likes a surprise bill).

4

Approachable

Guaranteeing fast response times and availability.

Meet Doron

Doron lives for advising entrepreneurs, startups and emerging companies. He has helped to form, capitalise and advise a large number of emerging businesses in areas such as software, fintech, AR/VR, blockchain, clean energy, medical, business services, internet and digital media, retail, cosmetic, e-commerce and consumer products.

Doron is committed to radically ‘de-formalising’ the lawyer-client relationship and breaking down the traditionalist approach to legal advice. His rules include: no suits, no complicated language, no long advices, fast turnarounds, and always prioritising the client’s commercial considerations above everything else. These principles have helped Doron establish an instant connection to the modern entrepreneur, who is looking for an easier and better relationship with their legal advisor.
