What is Frank?

Powered by Hall & Wilcox, Frank is a dedicated startup practice which supports entrepreneurs with practical, responsive business solutions.

While business law is our core service, there’s no legal speak here – just straightforward advice and accessibility to what we know and who we know.

And we’re not here to break the bank. We want to support your success, so we’ll work with you to set up a fee structure up front that lets you know exactly what you’re getting and what you’re paying.

Frank feedback

Nathan Merzvinskis, CEO, Everproof

Nathan Merzvinskis

"We have worked with a number of law firms on our journey and none have completely understood and supported the needs of a start up like Frank. They have been incredibly responsive, clear with their advice and I always feel like they are investing in our relationship for the long term. I would recommend seeking Frank advice to any start up that wants to lay a strong legal foundation and to build a relationship with a firm that can scale with them from inception to exit.”

Providing us with invaluable advice around structuring, partnership and contractor agreements, risk management and smart growth, our team has fast become one of our companies best assets.”

"They listened to what we had to say, taking time to understand our need and walked us through the process (simply) several times, until we got it! Key for us is that we’re not specialists in the legal space, as such we needed someone who could speak to us in clear and ‘non-jargony’ terminology. The whole experience was seamless and they even went on to offer additional top-line advice on a few other matters, helping us understand exactly what was required, in a simple way. We’d highly recommend them as they were available, patient, clear and they delivered.”
