It’s law…delivered differently

Let’s face it, starting, growing and sustaining a business is no easy task. There’s never enough hours in the day, money or resources. We’ve also helped enough small businesses and start-ups to know that legal advice and legal protection more often than not ends up at the bottom of the pile. In our experience, most people would prefer to go to the dentist than see a lawyer thinking they’re just going to get charged a lot of money, get oversold on advice they don’t really need, and be bamboozled with complex jargon.

We don’t like that. So we changed it.

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.

Kathryn Kavanagh, Momentum Labs

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.

Heidi Evans  |  Managing Director  | My P.A. Life Management

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!

Lisa Burling  |  Managing Director, LBPR Pty Ltd

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.

Melissa Madgwick | Owner, Digital Graphic Design

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!

Robert Coorey | Coorey Report

Our business approached Ian Aldridge at Progressive Legal because we needed help creating a Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions for online. Ian helped us by identifying our needs, reassuring us of the simplicity and possibilities and then put us on to one of the people on his amazing team. The result was that within a very short period of time we had a tailored, online business solution. The one thing I really appreciated was the personal touch to the experience. Each phone call was easy and friendly, I really felt like our business was being looked after by a team of approachable, caring and intelligent people. I would highly recommend Ian and Progressive Legal.

Kim Kinna  |  Co-founder | Living List

The team is entrepreneur specific, more able to advise me on my business. They have saved me time and money, plus allowed me to focus on doing what I do best

Rachael Sheldrick – The Workshop Whisperer

Great service, awesome working with the team on a quick turnaround – that was exactly what I needed before launch.

Anika Meza | New Beginnings Fair

Running a small business we all know that cashflow is king. Faced with an unresponsive bad debtor, I sent an enquiry through to Progressive Legal to ask for assistance in the matter. Less than ten minutes later I had received a phone call back from Ian, and within two hours everything was in motion and had been actioned! Amazing service that even included messages being sent on a Sunday morning to advise me that my matter had indeed been resolved. I cannot thank Ian and the team enough for this prompt attention and I will certainly be using them again for additional legal work.

Kerry Chick |  Client Happiness Director at Pepperpot Marketing + Events

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.

Scott Nailon  |  Business Owner  | Sites By Design

I approached Progressive Legal at the birth of my business to help with the set up and I was overwhelmed with the amount of support I received. Ian and the progressive legal team have been repressing myself and my business for the last year and it has been a lifesaver having all of my legal representation under one roof. The biggest result we have seen from the team is the amount of emotional stress that has been elevated and we could not have completed the first year of business without them.

Louisa Nicola, The Diamond Boss

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.

Maxim Thomas | Founder and CEO at Meravi

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.

Austin Felton  |  Owner  |  ScaleMyTech

I didn’t know what my legal responsibilities were and the steps that I can take legally. The team guided me through the things I needed to do – prevention rather than cure! Easy communication and straight-forward advice

Luke Moroney, First Time Property Investing

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.

Joe Negem | Managing Director |

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 | Director at Shop My Town

Amazing service – quick, knowledgeable and so easy to communicate. They’ve given me the confidence to transact and really clarified what I can do legally. The education has been great

Laura Huxley, Speakers Little Secret

Progressive Legal has designed a fantastic program for Entrepreneurs and SME’s. A no non-sense, straight forward approach, and very affordable!

Steve Brossman  | Best-selling Author | Stand Up, Stand Out

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!

Sophia Demetriades Toftdahl  |  CEO, Dream Internship | Norwegian-Australian Business Network (NABN)

Ian & the Progressive Legal team are unbeatable when it comes to getting the legalities of entrepreneurs and business owners sorted. His flat rate and easy to understand services means you never have to worry again about how much your next phone call with your lawyer is going to cost you. A truly refreshing approach to corporate law! Well done!

– James Banks | Co-founder at Web3

Fabulous customer service, responding promptly to my queries and ensuring I understood everything clearly.

Genevieve Hall | Personal Trainer & Director at enerG+

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.
