About Us

We understand the problem

Avantia Law was founded by a former General Counsel to provide a better solution for in-house legal teams

We founded Avantia Law because there was no efficient solution for the processing of routine legal documents

Traditional Law Firms

High hourly charging rates lead to inefficient pricing for a large portion of legal work.

Regional Processing

Often staffed by lawyers without City law firm experience or project management expertise.

Temporary Staffing

Variable contract lawyer experience with little or no process management or quality control.

As the General Counsel of a large alternative asset manager, our legal team spent a lot of their time making sure routine documents such as NDAs and Terms of Business were processed smoothly. Although routine, having an efficient process to review these documents is key for the business. You either commit a lot of internal resource to managing this or pay traditional law firms a significant amount. Avantia Law provides an alternative solution.
