About Lex

We're building a groundbreaking legal app which is intended to open up legal services & access to justice to the average person, globally. This is currently Beta, and will be a start to finish venture.

From the team that brought you www.monacosolicitors.co.uk, the concept of the app is to give people video calls with a lawyer at the press of a button, to deal with their problems like employment, matrimonial, tax and property. Most people have never used a lawyer (other than perhaps for conveyancing) and we want to change that. It is similar to the Babylon health app but for lawyers instead of doctors. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference and work with a dynamic and forward thinking startup team. We encourage teamwork and open discussion, especially for problem solving, and we have a real passion for bringing the provision of legal services up to date using tech. In fact, Monaco Solicitors was recently shortlisted in the Law Society Excellence Awards for innovation in technology.

We need a senior developer and we’ve made a video for the role. https://youtu.be/dXMR9RmDG7c
