Why We Exist

By Lawyers is the global online legal publisher helping law firms to work smarter and enjoy practice more by enhancing productivity, minimising risk, and increasing profitability.

What We Do

We deliver information and guidance enabling legal practitioners to conduct legal matters in a logical, efficient, and cost effective way.

Practical and up-to-date legal publications

Our practical up to date publications are made up of commentaries, matter plans and precedents in all the common areas of law. They are available in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the UK.

Automated legal precedents and forms

We focus on assisting law firms with a vast library of precedents and forms, used by over 30,000 subscribers every day.

We empower your law firm

We introduce a best practice solution that ensures a commitment to plain language communications with clients, and logical, well thought out processes that help every member of the team to see what work is required, and to ensure every step is completed through to providing the invoice on completion and closing the file.

Principals, lawyers, paralegals, and admin staff love what we do!

Written by legal professionals engaged in practice

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