Why completing our Free Legal Health Check is so important!

Taking No Action: Unmet legal need in Australia?

Can you believe that the Legal Australia-Wide (LAW) Survey results published back in 2012 found that circa 49% of Australians either do nothing (18%) when confronted with legal troubles or attempt to resolve them without legal advice (31%)?

These statistics are humbling when the real impacts on people's personal and business lives are considered.

The survey also found that adverse consequences were common (often spilling across from business into personal).

The majority of the legal problems routinely encountered by Australians (or at least their adverse consequences) are capable of being avoided, if legal advice is sought and acted upon early enough.

Key Findings

The survey and more recent publications have been published by the Law and Justice Foundation of New South Wales and have found:

✅ A continued need for innovative solutions; together with

✅ The realisation that both business + personal legal problems need to be dealt with together as neither occur in a vacuum.

Survey Conclusion: Ignore potential legal problems at your own peril!

"Many LAW Survey respondents ignored their legal problems and achieved poor outcomes.
This underscores the utility of mobilising people to take action, by helping them to identify their legal rights, appropriate courses of action and relevant advice services."

The "Blue Ocean" of Unmet Legal Needs in Australia

The survey found that use of Legal Advisors by State or Territory ranged between 23% - 33%.

This means that circa 70-80% of Australians do not consult a lawyer when faced with legal problems!

This 70%+ statistic is at the core of what we call the "Blue Ocean" of Unmet Legal Needs in Australia.

We understand that there are numerous reasons for not seeking legal advice, many of which are capable of being resolved.

Consequently, when we founded Blue Ocean Law Group in 2017, we set our aim towards designing + delivering innovative + cost effective legal solutions which directly address these reasons so that the vast unmet legal needs of Australians can start to be met.

Business-related Legal Problems do not exist in a Vacuum

"LAW Survey data show that business-related legal problems commonly affect owners’ health and roughly 1 in 15 contributes to a relationship breakdown.
While not all relationship breakdowns are between family members, some will be.
This paper highlights the need to support businesses to deal with legal problems in the round.
These findings therefore reinforce the wider case for timely and integrated legal assistance services."
