Today I’m joined by Carly Stebbing, Principal and Founder of Resoltion123 – an online law firm for employees. Carly is passionate about making justice accessible to the average Australian. She established Resolution123 to employment law quick, simple and affordable for employees.
I approached Carly as a guest on the show because I was interested in learning about her online web app – a clever online tool that allows clients to upload information about their circumstances and find out if they have a claim. As well as this, Carly shares a wealth of knowledge about running a legal practice as a business in the true sense of the word. She shares how she saw a gap in the market and worked out how to service it and is a prime example of what a client centric approach really looks like.
Here’s a summary of the things we talk about:
3:03 The 3 steps to Resolution123 – assess, assemble, accelerate
3:19 First of a kind web-app that replaces a lawyer’s initial consult
5:10 Tackling the access to justice crisis by providing services to the “missing middle”
8:13 Why we shouldn’t automate everything
9:41 The value of niche positioning
12:15 Behind the scenes – how the work gets done (hint: there are real humans!)
15:25 How Resolution123 can provide legal services for less, and why they choose to
18:31 Points of difference in the client engagement process
21:02 Retraining staff who have come from traditional law
24:13 Learning some business savvy!
25:55 The start-up mindset
26:52 Concentrate on the “why”
