What We Do
Simplex Legal is changing the business of law. Our approach is simple and unique. We’ve created a formula to reduce your legal fees significantly while bringing you the best talent.
You have an existing legal team needing support. Our lawyers provide the support onsite or virtually.
You don’t have a legal team yet, or it’s thinly staffed. You have recurring legal work and are looking for a cost-effective solution. One that’s scaled to your needs
You need a basic agreement and you’ll be damned if you’re going to pay a lawyer’s hourly rate when you know exactly what you need and can do it yourself. Stop here and see if we’ve got what you need.

Who We Are
Simplex Legal has provided revolutionary services since 2009. As a new entity, we weren’t burdened by any legacy considerations. We didn’t have a defined service model and we didn’t have any financial commitments. We just had some experienced people who wanted to build a business that challenged the way legal services are delivered.
We realized in order to do that we would need seasoned people, with the confidence to step in and run without undue supervision.
We’re devoted people who are passionate about people, law and business. We believe you can have happy clients along with a healthy lifestyle.
Why We Do What We Do
In our previous law practices, we saw unhappy clients and unhappy lawyers. Clients were frustrated with high fees and as lawyers, we were dissatisfied with the pressure to bill rather than to service. We decided to challenge the least client-centric of the legal conventions and bring a service level commensurate with the best offerings outside of law.
“The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.”
– William Pollard
Simplex Legal lawyers have received the best training that the industry provides and, without exception, have honed their skills working in-house for some of Canada’s greatest companies. They have been called to the bar for at least ten years, thus have the experience necessary to hit the ground running.
Thanks to some of our great clients for offering these comments!
We have been working with Simplex for many years and we are thoroughly pleased with their services. Whether to supplement our law department when faced with a surge of activity due to an increase in volume or special projects, or to fill in during a lawyer’s maternity leave or while we recruit for a permanent position, our partnership with Simplex has provided a very flexible platform that has enabled us to provide seamless legal coverage across the company. We use Simplex lawyers as an extension of our Law Department. Their lawyers have worked both on-site with us alongside of the other members of the law department and remotely, all to best suit our needs.

Very professional, prompt and straightforward service. When I’m wondering how our project is going, updates are provided promptly. Lynsey’s personality is approachable, friendly and very professional. I am happy that I do not need to spend time as a “go- between” to “translate” lawyer-speak from her to my internal clients. This is very important, as my internal clients would not respond well to a lawyer who is formal, stilted or inaccessible. Simplex’s rates are completely reasonable. In short, I would describe Simplex and Lynsey’s service as excellent value. I think that I’m receiving high quality legal work at a very reasonable price. I would recommend Simplex.

Trish has been outstanding and responsive to a variety of issues and legal matters. She has quickly grasped our desired business objectives and has been able to reflect those in her work product. Trish has been dedicated and committed to our business and I respect that she makes sure that the client is happy and that she has fully delivered quality work. I felt the quality was excellent. I did not need to worry about whether the work was being performed correctly or whether something was missed. 5 out of 5 on all.
