D-Law aims to improve the quality, speed and depth of legal knowledge within an organisation.

We are pioneering the application of design principles to legal problems.


Our D-Law Principles


The Challenge

The legal profession is undergoing deep structural change. Customer expectations and attitudes, technology and digital disprution are changing the way we practice law. It is a mature market approaching a state of hyper-competition.  Lawyers are constantly being asked to do more with less.

Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!
— The Red Queen (Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking Glass)

A Broken Process

Businesses are applying piecemeal ad hoc legal processes where little thought has gone into the process.  The example below demonstrates the waste and frustration this can cause clients and team members.


Ten Types of Innovation

Applying D-Law Principles we co-collaborate with business units to innovate across the business.


"When the delivery of legal services moves up the Legal Services Design Ladder clients are more competitive"


"Everyone loves cake. 
We bake legal advice that delights".

We layer our legal advice to serve different audiences and purposes. 

For example, while General Counsel may receive a complete copy of the agreement, the Board gets a summary, the accounts team receive only the necessary payment terms to issue invoices and the sale department are provided with key terms and negotiating tips - all presented in a way (such as in tables, charts and diagrams) they can easily digest.
