Let’s face it, we know that growing and sustaining a business is one of the hardest things you’ve ever done.
There’s never enough hours in the day, money or resources.
After helping over 2,000 growing small businesses over the past 4 years, we quickly realised that legal advice and protection ends up at the bottom of your pile, until it’s too late.
Most people would prefer to go to the dentist than see a lawyer.
We’re changing that for you!
Law delivered differently,
more resolution, less confusion
Progressive Legal provides an amazing, cost effective service for entrepreneurs, at a time when they need it most. Too often entrepreneurs and small business owners are going without legal advice, or opting for below par, template based services. The Progressive Legal team are highly competent, dedicated to supporting their clients, fabulous to deal with and - most importantly - I know my business is safe in their hands.

I have utilised Ian’s legal services right from the beginning of my ventures. Ian provides exceptional legal counsel and responds quickly and sharply to eliminate legal issues which arise and potential legal issues in the future. I highly recommend Ian to anyone seeking not just a legal expert, but someone who goes that extra step further to ensure that you and your business are legally compliant.

Getting the contract today, working through it and seeing how solid it was, was amazing. I’m very happy with your service. I can see that you have really seen a lack in how startups and independent business are taken care of, and provided an excellent and very heartfelt solution.
Melody Jarvis | Shop My Town
Fabulous customer service, responding promptly to my queries and ensuring I understood everything clearly.

Anika Meza | New Beginnings Fair
Thank you so much to Progressive Legal and Legal Shield. Our business is going through some contractual issues and unfortunately we were very much working without proper legal cover. Legal Shield has provided Emirias with the support, documentation and advice that we very much needed to underpin and sustain our growth.
Progressive Legal has designed a fantastic program for Entrepreneurs and SME’s. A no non-sense, straight forward approach, and very affordable!

I’m all about following the rules, and as a new business owner, I was a bit sketchy on what those rules and limitations were. Thankfully I found Progressive Legal, they know ALL the rules and help me follow them to a ‘T’. I can now confidently go into the marketplace with a Client Services Agreement that I know is right for both me and my clients.

One of the most switched on Small Businessman I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. He has been an asset to my business and going forward I know his help and advice will be invaluable.
Ian is very detail oriented who quickly and proficiently provided detailed legal advice regarding contracts, confidentiality agreements, trademarking, government grants and all round great counsel. In summary, I have never met such an incredibly precise lawyer who is also personable and become a friend to Cherrii, my social network, and to me.
Ian is like an unknown treasure to those who don’t know him and pearl to those who do. It’s important to have a good lawyer on your team when you start up to avoid falling into ditches you can’t see (and aren’t expected to see). I recommend any entrepreneur get in touch with Ian, especially also now that he helps entrepreneurs get SMB grants!

Whether it be company structure set up, intellectual property protection, commercial disputes or general commercial legal advice – I have no hesitation in recommending Ian as a great legal advisor for small business owners.

Ian and his team helped me sort out a trademark for a sub-brand of my core business in an efficient, uncomplicated fashion. As someone with a relatively young business and limited budget, I found their service and advice to be truly awesome – especially the fixed price for their element of the cost. Highly recommend Ian to anyone looking for legal counsel that keeps it simple and gets done what has to be done!
Ian is my go to person for anything legal!. I'm an entrepreneur and my time is precious! It's comforting knowing Ian has knowledge on everything legal for startu ups & it's great to know he will give real advice and affordable rates. He's very business minded and savvy - so I know I have all areas covered! Cannot thank him enough for the help received so far! Will be recommending to all my entrepreneur network.
Carla’s advice was clear and practical, very thorough understanding of all the applicable legislation and was able to very quickly understand our situation and recommend a course of action. Gave me a lot of confidence. Highly recommend you contact her!
With my speaking, my book, my workshops, meetups, blog and personal brand all tied into my “Design You®” processes and terminology, I wanted to make sure I got it right. The team at Progressive Legal have been invaluable as I negotiated the legal quagmire of trademarking my brand; what’s more – they made it easy for me and fun. I wasn’t expecting that!
