Why us?

I think that with LawHawk being commercial lawyers and great people to work with, they really understood what it is we do and the practical challenges we face, and that was key for us," he recalls. "Setting up automation isn't just about flicking a switch. You need to think through the process and make sure the templates and internal processes work for your business, and LawHawk were able to work through all that with us.

Julian Benefield - Associate General Counsel

The benefits have been a thousand-fold. From our position, the brokers' position, and the clients' position, the nature of the whole process has significantly improved. Business owners can put all the required information into one platform, and their accountants can add information as well, which eliminates double-handling. It's a huge time saver.

David Newport, Director

Their ability to look at our problem, and help us identify our requirements, has been amazing. They’re lawyers as well as software developers and they’ve got to know us

Yazmin Juned, Associate General Counsel

Online Customer

I recently used the LawHawk will tool, and it was brilliant. Quick, easy and intuitive, but still entirely comprehensive. I've delayed making a will for ages because it seemed like such a hassle, but this made it extremely easy. I've recommended it to my partner and family.

Zac, a customer who purchased our online will and enduring power of attorney package

Automation means I know things are actually under control. The system is reliable, it's working, it removes that margin of error - that gives me business confidence and peace of mind.

David Pawson - Director

Consistency is key. We have the certainty that the documents are up-to-date, and accurate. The LawHawk system provided by Ford Sumner is a real DIY solution that means you don’t have to fork out for a solicitor every time you want a new agreement or contract.
