The legal profession is changing. Digital skills are becoming increasingly important. Those seeking legal assistance are increasingly moving to digital channels and using innovative tools in the cloud. Our founding team of lawyers and software developers has taken this development as an opportunity to develop a digital platform for the cooperation between lawyer and client, where everything takes place in one place. The lawyer search, the collaboration with the lawyer, the payment of fees — everything is done in one place.
The mission of GetYourLawyer is to simplify access to justice and to bring more transparency and simplicity to cooperation with lawyers. Clients should be able to compare offers and understand costs before they secure legal services. The digital service of GetYourLawyer enables easy communication and coordination between client and lawyer. All participants interact via the GetYourLawyer platform, saving time and money — and this is what we mean by efficient and modern legal advice.
With the Guider online platform, the Beobachter has taken the first steps towards digitising legal advice. By acquiring a majority stake in GetYourLawyer, the Beobachter is further expanding its range of digital legal services and is now also offering its clients a simple and innovative solution for legal advice.
"The Beobachter has always advocated easy access to the law. The advisory centre already processes more than 100,000 requests from its members every year, offering competent help in various situations. The participation of Ringier Axel Springer Schweiz AG in GetYourLawyer AG now offers us the opportunity to provide our clients with even better digital legal advice".
Roland Wahrenberger, Chairman of the Board of Directors of GetYourLawyer, Chief Marketing Officer Ringier Axel Springer Schweiz AG and Head of Beobachter.
