We provide businesses with legal expertise delivered in plain English with a strong customer focus.

At SBL, we have a common-sense approach to pricing with fixed prices and upfront quotes available on request.


We don’t just see the legal angles; we see the whole business picture. This means we can help you to resolve business disputes strategically. We prepare contracts that non-lawyers can understand. By keeping the contracts, agreements, and T&Cs we prepare for you in plain English, we aim to avoid ambiguities resulting in confusion or Court action later.
