•             Value pricing / No timesheets or hourly billing  - we work with clients to agree the value of the work we do for them up front allowing for certainty, aligning of incentives to get the work done and our staff to focus on achieving quality outcomes for clients rather than being rewarded for time taken.

Described as Australia’s “most innovative law firm” (Huffington Post), Law Squared is committed to practising law in a more human way.
Led by Demetrio Zema, Law Squared has identified modern legal system is archaic and unable to meet the needs of a thriving ecosystem of entrepreneurs and high growth businesses.

Why? Traditional law firms are determined to maintain strict hierarchies and the dysfunctional 'billable hour'. This inefficient structure prevents innovation and tech-adaptability, resulting in outcomes that significantly cost clients in both time and money.
Therefore, Law Squared has been built around the principles of New Law to respond to these problems, and has a strong focus on building and supporting a community of entrepreneurs and high growth business in Australia and beyond.
Our firm is absolutely committed to its community and achieving client outcomes by providing our legal services in a more human way.

LOD - Lawyers On Demand

LOD is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing flexible legal services businesses, with a team of 600 high quality lawyers and compliance professionals across the globe.  LOD  was created by the merger of AdventBalance in Australia and Asia and London’s LOD in mid-2016. Passionately committed to different and better ways of working for both lawyers and legal and compliance teams, we enable lawyers to take control of how (and where) they work and assist our clients to focus on outputs and not overheads.


Our service offerings include: ‘On-Site’ where lawyers work at clients offices for as long as they need to cover employee gaps, absences or longer term projects; ‘On-Call’ with lawyers working as and when needed as a flexile extension of clients teams and perfect for contract overflow, project work or extra capacity; and ‘Designed & Managed Solutions’ which is an insourced or outsourced team of lawyers, compliance professionals, paralegals, experts or a combination of them, that is project managed by LOD to work on a pre-defined matter, project, activity or workflow.

Lawyers join us for many reasons but what they do have in common is the desire for high quality work with leading organisations coupled with a degree of control, which traditional models can’t offer.  For our lawyers, working with LOD is both a career and lifestyle choice.   And for our clients, they have easy and transparent access to talented people in a more flexible, cost effective and efficient manner. Most importantly, we believe in a high energy and positive culture. Being a lawyer is hard work, but it should also be rewarding and enjoyable.
