Why We Exist

By Lawyers exists as an online global legal publisher because of our desire to make the practice of law safer, more profitable and more consistent. We exist to help law firms enjoy practice more.

What We Do

We deliver information and guidance enabling legal practitioners and support staff in law firms to conduct legal matters in a logical sequential manner.

Practical and up-to-date legal publications

We publish practical, up-to-date Legal Guides, Matter Plans, Commentaries, forms and precedents for law firms in Canada, Australia and the UK.

Automated legal precedents and forms

We focus on solving the problems of law firms with a library of over 15,000 forms and precedents, used by over 5,000 law firms daily.

We empower your law firm

We write in plain English so our publications are accessible and understandable by your clients and by all staff in the firm. It is our belief that paralegals, practice managers and administration staff will benefit from the use of our publications, as well as lawyers.

Written by legal professionals engaged in practice

Our content reflects the experience of multiple legal practitioners, rather than one person’s take on the subject. Our authors are not academics. They are knowledgeable lawyers engaged in daily legal practice and are best suited to ensure that content is practical and useful in the every day practice of law.
