What our clients have to say:

“Getting all our contracts consolidated, cleaned up, and *without legalese* has been an amazing experience.
Thank you, Trevor Fenton and Plain English Law.”


Justin Megawarne, Managing Partner - Megaslice LLP

“Trevor offered expert knowledge and an ability to talk in plain language, which I really appreciated. I worked with him to write a contract for my mental health business, and he helped me to balance both the legal and ethical sides. I was specifically looking for expertise on how to scale my business internationally and Trevor was able to advise and offer peace of mind for how I could do this in an online world. I now feel like I can focus on what I do best, while knowing that the contractual side is solid.”

Lee McKay Doe, Psychotherapist - Therapy With Lee

“If anyone is looking for a lawyer who is easy to work with, really understands a business commercially, challenges legalese conventions and can write legal contracts and terms in plain English, I would highly recommend Trevor Fenton at Plain English Law. I founded a new e-commerce business that will trade internationally with what is quite a complex business model, and Trevor was invaluable during the set-up process. He not only produced legal contracts and terms that everyone who reads them understands (and as a result I have very few if any queries), he also helped shape the business structure and how we developed relationships with vendors and suppliers. Trevor made a big difference in getting my business to where it is now.”
