Company Summary

wireLawyer seeks to change the paradigm in which small to mid-sized law firms (SMLs) do business by offering them the opportunity to network, refer and outsource work to each other and work collaboratively. Whilst there’s a cacophony of consumer-facing sites that offer lead generation, wireLawyer actually establishes a platform, which allows lawyers to source cleaner leads (referrals) and be more efficient by pooling their collective resources.
