A fast-growing law firm challenging the traditional way legal services are supplied to businesses and entrepreneurs has staged a thank you event with a difference for clients.

Southampton-based Hybrid Legal took over the popular Dancing Man Brewery at the medieval Wool House on the city’s Town Quay for an informal beer tasting event.

Hybrid Legal, founded nearly five years ago by managing director Ryan Lisk to be a disruptive presence in the industry, has a business model involving fixed-fee work for more than 300 businesses in the south.

The expanding firm has just appointed a new member of staff, Taylor Devenport as client partner, identifying legal service needs and providing clients with solutions to obstacles they may be facing.

He said: “I am confident in dealing with the complex issues that clients currently face. My knowledge of commercial, corporate, employment and IP matters allows me to assist clients and achieve the exceptional results that they desire.”

He joins an extensive and diverse team with wide-ranging expertise across many fields at the city centre-headquartered firm.

Hybrid is also seeking to employ another client partner to help deal with a burgeoning workload following a very good start to the year.

“It was also a chance to introduce Taylor to everyone and explain the important role he will be playing at Hybrid Legal, providing dedicated support to our Legal Plus clients under our monthly subscription service.”

Ryan added: “The advent of GDPR has given us the chance to develop existing relationships with clients, and it’s also opened the door to new opportunities.

“Our Legal Plus subscription – which enables entrepreneurs, start-ups and growing businesses to have the reassurance of fixed-fee legal expertise working alongside them with no financial surprises – is going from strength to strength.

“Clients appreciate the real world advice and support we offer using our own experiences in today’s tough, modern world.”

Ryan, who lives in Hampshire, previously set up his own business after graduating with a first-class honours degree from Bristol Law School.

He was inspired from his role providing legal support to a fast-growing start-up that was fed up with traditional law firms.

Services include advising on company structures, data protection, drafting and advising on commercial contracts, protecting intellectual property and providing a wide range of employment law-related support and services.
