How often do you think about purpose? Not just your own, but your clients’ too?  

Having a “purpose higher than profit” is top of the list of selection criteria for Sarah Bartholomeusz, founder of You Legal. 

You Legal provide top-tier corporate and commercial legal solutions for medical and allied health professionals, manufacturing, and technology. They deliver services with a commercial approach, understanding that clients need more than just a legal answer to achieve their vision and goals. They choose only work with clients who have a purpose that is higher than profit – those who want to make a difference in the world.  

As for their employees, You Legal staff have complete autonomy over their time and effort, choosing when and where they work. As a result, Sarah knows a thing or two about managing a remote and flexible workforce.
