Sparqa Legal has announced a new partnership with Visa Europe, a world leader in digital payments, to provide a Sparqa Legal subscription to selected UK Visa business cardholders.  Eligible cardholders will have unlimited access to all key business legal documents, contracts and policies, which can be customised.  They will also have access to legal guidance on English and Welsh law, written by top UK lawyers, helping them to comply with legal requirements.

The benefits of this new partnership to eligible UK Visa business cardholders include:

  • Access to over 400 automated legal document templates,
  • Guidance across 13 core areas of the law, including human resources, intellectual property, company secretarial, health & safety, commercial property and raising finance,
  • For bespoke requests, the service will connect businesses to an expert lawyer in the related field.

Combining Visa’s established small business network together with Sparqa Legal’s knowledge is expected to protect SMEs and empower them to understand and address the legal and regulatory requirements affecting their business.

Hema Marshall, Chief Revenue Officer at Sparqa Legal commented:

“Our mission when launching Sparqa Legal was to make the law accessible and empower businesses to fulfil many of their legal requirements themselves. We believe that armed with the right tools, and resources, smart business managers can self-serve many of their own legal requirements. For those who wish to speak to a lawyer, we offer the reassurance of a triage service to match the right client with the right legal professional.

We are incredibly excited to partner with Visa Europe since the partnership allows us to extend the reach of our service, making it accessible to a huge number of businesses at the click of a button.”
