Evyenia Walton, Managing Director
Since I first started practising law in 2004, I noticed that there are a lot of businesses who were engaging large law firm providers and paying through the nose. Or, if they couldn’t afford or access quality legal services, I saw some business owners sign contracts blindly, or with little or no understanding of what the contract actually said. In some cases, there were no contracts in place at all.
So I set out on My Mission - to educate business owners about the risks in their contracts, and draft tailored, creative and effective legal documents that were easy to understand.
My Vision is to create a company that is accessible to ALL businesses offering quality legal services at affordable prices.
I want all business owners to feel like they can negotiate a fair and equitable contract with ANYONE.
Interpret Contracts aims to give business owners the tools, knowlege and confidence they need to do what they do best - their business.
