The law firm of Dunton Rainville and the young Montreal-based company Lex Start have signed an exclusive partnership agreement to offer turnkey, fixed-price legal services to Quebec entrepreneurs.

Thanks to an innovative online platform developed by Lex Start to simplify procedures, this partnership allows entrepreneurs to obtain high-quality legal services from Dunton Rainville at very competitive rates. This partnership therefore makes legal services more accessible — excellent news for entrepreneurs who wish to manage the cost of developing their business plan or launching their business.

Founded in 2015, Lex Start is a dynamic player among Quebec legal tech firms and is revolutionizing the industry’s traditional business processes: “Our mission is to support entrepreneurial growth in Quebec and Canada; to do so, we recognized a real need to lower the barriers to start up businesses”, explains Lex Start Co-Founder and lawyer, Gilles de Saint-Exupéry. “We realized that too many entrepreneurs did not consult a lawyer until they found themselves in a difficult situation and rarely to avoid such situations. Lex Start offers legal solutions tailored to the needs and the reality of entrepreneurs, while upholding the strategic objectives of the Quebec Bar regarding legal tech.”

Dunton Rainville is highly invested in the promotion of legal tech in Quebec, which we consider to be a valuable asset and a powerful lever to encourage the democratisation of legal services for businesses and individuals”, adds Me Jean-Jacques Rainville, Chairman of the firm’s Board of Directors.

To offer this type of service, Lex Start developed an Internet platform that allows entrepreneurs to provide the information necessary to draft various legal documents using secure forms, which simplifies legal procedures, all while making them easier to understand.

Using the information provided, legal documents can then be created and validated more quickly by Dunton Rainville to validate their quality at a guaranteed, controlled cost.

Dunton Rainville wants to make a real contribution to the development and continuity of start-ups”, explained Me Jean-Jacques Rainville. “Thanks to our partnership, this will now be possible, and we hope that Lex Start will quickly become the legal platform of reference for entrepreneurs launching a business in Quebec by providing them with quality service from our firm.”
