Hannah qualified as a solicitor in 2010 after completing an honours degree in law, post-graduate diploma in legal practice (with commendation!) and a two-year trainee placement. Having qualified Hannah quickly became disillusioned with the competitive world of law.
Fed up with only assisting the rich and knowing that if she needed advice from a solicitor, like millions of others in the UK she would not be able to afford it; Hannah decided there must be another way. Hannah felt that the law was something everyone should have the benefit of, not just the rich. By not having access to legal advice it was those who could least afford it that would be burdened with the biggest fees when things went wrong.
Knowing she had a limited understanding of what it takes to set up and run a company, Hannah began a degree in Business Management whilst working full-time as a solicitor.
Hannah knew that to make legal services accessible to all she had to reduce the cost associated with the services her company provided. To reduce over heads and production costs Hannah set up a non-solicitors legal document company. The company would offer non-reserved legal services, that is those services which are not restricted by law to be provided by solicitors and other regulated providers, to assist with the common legal issues faced by individuals. Hannah would no longer act as a solicitor but instead she would become a director of a legal services company and help those she thought needed her the most.
Once she understood what was required and she was confident enough to go it alone Hannah incorporated Lakes Legal Limited and the company was born.
