Top law firm & legal tech pioneer help SA companies reduce legal costs

Written by Vicky Daley

Now more than ever companies are looking to cut costs – and where better than on the cost of legal compliance?

Gunston Strandvik Attorneys, a fresh thinking law firm, and Libryo, a pioneering legal tech company, have been working hard and fast to leverage their partnership to meet the rising need for affordable legal compliance.

“Our goal has been to create an innovative legal offering that will benefit companies of all sizes. It has the potential to simplify legal compliance, whether it be Environmental, Health and Safety, Privacy, Finance, Tax, Corporate Governance, or Labour, allowing you to do what you do best – delight your customers!” Shaun Cox, COO of Gunston Strandvik Attorneys.

So why would a law firm be willing to help reduce legal costs?

Good question. Gunston Strandvik Attorneys’ vision is to revolutionise the world’s experience of law. They started this journey several years ago, measuring and continuously improving their clients’ experience.

“The next logical step is to give digital solutions to enable our clients to self-serve on basic compliance needs where possible. We reckon that if our clients are dealing with the basics, we can focus on the challenging, complex and creative – as fresh thinking attorneys that’s where we come into our own and really add value to our clients anyway!” Shaun Cox, COO of Gunston Strandvik Attorneys.

Enter Libryo!


How does Libryo help deliver this solution?

Libryo provides a platform that enables clients to self-serve. Now you can have a legal library tailored to your unique operations. This solution informs you of legal changes as they’re enacted and identifies your current compliance status. This ensures you know your law and compliance status whenever something changes - empowering you to take action faster. 

“We see a future where customers can access the law in an increasingly simplified way, where attorneys solve the complex problems, and compliance becomes an outcome, not a chore. Working with Gunston Strandvik we are excited to help pioneer the synthesis of technology and quality legal partners.” Malcolm Gray, Libryo Co-founder and CFO

How this partnership can benefit you

When Libryo’s platform is combined with Gunston Strandvik Attorneys’ legal knowledge, the solution amplifies. Now you can access templates drafted by legal professionals at the click of a button to fulfil compliance tasks quickly and confidently. Where you’d value a legal opinion for peace of mind, instead of drafting a legal brief and forwarding all documents to your attorneys, now you just link their name to your discussions and ask them to weigh in. E.g. “@shauncox – please comment.” Done! A streamlined consultation – taking less of your time and better suited to your budget.
