This Startup is Connecting Nigerians with Legal Service Providers


As the use of technology continues to be on the rise, more and more disruptive startup ideas are being churned out, covering diverse sectors/industries and solving unique problems. Now, ParadElaw is here to solve problems in the most unusual field.

For anyone hiring the services of a lawyer for the first time, it’s usual really tasking to figure out where to find and contact them. Having figured out the disconnect between these legal service providers and people needing the services, Femi Ibiwoye launched ParadElaw.

The online legal platform connects people who need legal services with experienced Lawyers.

Through its web and mobile applications, the platform makes it easy to filter and hire lawyers from a large database of practice area that includes – civil rights, family law, child custody, divorce, auto accidents, criminal law, contract and real estate.

ParadElaw also provides users with free access to legal information through its blog.

While ParadElaw might not be the first legal startup, as there’s DIYLaw, a one-stop online shop for fulfilling registration and legal needs in Nigeria;  LawPadi, an online legal query platform, aiming to educate the population about their legal rights and duties and Legal Forms guiding users through the business registration process with the country’s Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), the startup is immune to competition, as it’s offering something different by making legal service providers very accessible to Nigerians.
