We believe the current legal model is outdated and our vision is completely different to the “old paradigm”. We’re not your typical Law Firm.

We Don’t Do This

  • Send large bills that you’re not expecting
  • Have fancy offices (guess what, you end up paying for that view)
  • Add all those extra annoying charges like photocopying, faxing, printing and telephone charges
  • Give you false expectations of winning claims
  • Get involved with family law, crime or conveyancing – but have some good colleagues who we can refer you to.

We Do This

  • Provide open, honest and transparent legal advice
  • Fixed-fee costing whenever possible
  • Become a trusted adviser who will support you in growing your business
  • Talk to you in plain-English and share extensive knowledge, resources and information through Law in a Box
  • Offer tailored membership packages through Legal Shield giving you the protection you need at a price you can afford, payable in monthly instalments
  • Understand what it’s like to be a small-business owner or start-up entrepreneur, and can relate to your unique challenges
  • Work with you to achieve your desired objectives

It’s still law. It’s just delivered differently.

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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.
