Today, online legal services provider Rocket Lawyer is introducing its first services in the Netherlands. Businesses and consumers can create free online documents in the coming months and ask questions to lawyers on an online forum. The introduction marks the rise to the official launch of Rocket Lawyer in the Netherlands in the coming weeks.
Founder and CEO Charley Moore was special in the Netherlands for the occasion: "I am here at the Zuidas in Amsterdam, where the largest Dutch law firms are located. You can say that this is the best place for legal advice. However, few companies and consumers can afford these services. That's why I am here: Rocket Lawyer wants to make high-quality legal aid affordable and accessible for everyone in the Netherlands. While we are preparing our launch in the Netherlands, people can already try out some of our services for free. "
Legal aid must be more accessible
In view of the increasing legalization and economic growth in the Netherlands, good access to legal services is more important than ever. From the social discussions about, for example, 'no cure no pay' and subsidized legal aid, it appears that this access is still far from realized. A European survey that Rocket Lawyer commissioned in 2016 by Kantar shows that the high price is the most important factor for not consulting a lawyer.
Rocket Lawyer has been providing low-threshold access to lawyers and legal documents to Americans since 2008 and is very successful in this. More than 40 million legal documents have already been drawn up with the patented platform. In 2012, Rocket Lawyer started its European rollout in the United Kingdom. It is now expanding its services in Europe. At the same time as the Netherlands, Rocket Lawyer is now introducing its first free services in Spain and is officially launching its fully paid platform in France.
Cooperation with Sdu
Rocket Lawyer attaches great importance to the quality and topicality of the legal information it provides. That is why the company works together with the Dutch legal publisher Sdu. This allows Rocket Lawyer Netherlands to follow all changes in the law and immediately update its documents and legal signposts. With this, Rocket Lawyer offers an unrivaled, reliable service.
In January 2017, the beta version of Rocket Lawyer Netherlands already aired, but only now the first free services are accessible. For more information see www.rocketlawyer.nl
