About Us

Having long ago bucked the constraints of conventional law firms, we’re a group of highly experienced, commercially-focused professionals, who are passionate about making a difference. We’re driven by a heartfelt mission to deliver expertise in a way that makes our clients’ lives easier, and creates exceptional customer, employee and shareholder experiences.

Our unique retainer model is at the heart of Source.

For an agreed monthly price, our clients receive all the support they need, in the ordinary course of business. There is no time recording or time billing, no caps, and no tricky exceptions. Just tailored, exceptional support whenever our clients need it. No other firm offers a truly unlimited service like Source does.

Our values are built around this unswerving commitment, and underpin everything we do.

VALUE-BASED

Services are always based on the value to each client.

STRAIGHT FORWARD

Our approach is straight forward and our advice is simple, practical and decisive.

Client Centric

Hyper responsiveness and relatability are the hallmarks of our exceptional client experience.

Different

We are not afraid to do things differently. Our agreed price approach that breaks with tradition is just the start.

Trusted

We care and we are always there for our clients.

Our story

After working for many years as an in-house lawyer, Stanislav Roth saw first-hand the frustrations that businesses experience when working with external law firms. This included billing by time, overly conservative advice and a lack of responsiveness.

Stanislav wanted to create an external legal service that centred around the needs of the client, rather than putting the needs of the law firm first. That meant creating a highly responsive service, giving decisive advice to clients and doing away with time-based billing altogether.

Stanislav founded Source Legal in 2011 to do exactly that.

This innovative approach proved to be exactly what clients were looking for, and has been widely recognised.

Expanding beyond legal services

In 2018 we expanded beyond legal services, with the launch of Source HR. HR support was an obvious gap with many of our clients, so it was a natural extension to start providing this service under the same model. Then in 2019 we launched Source CFO – the same on-tap service, for CFO and finance functions.

Our growing portfolio of services meant we were no longer just a law firm, but a professional services firm. To reflect this, we changed our brand to ‘Source’ in 2019.

In 2020 we took another big step, joining forces with Hamilton Locke and Emerson CoSec, as part of Halo Group Holdings.
