We focus on businesses like your members and we don't charge you or them for what they have a right to know - like certainty on costs, process and time-frames. You'll find this information for free on our website already - a few clicks deliver all that's needed to get started. So you and your members can confidently get down to business and we'll take care of the real legal stuff, leaving you with a package that works for you both, and that gives you real revenue benefits.
What we offer: We scan the horizon of the legal world so you don't have to and we share what we learn - when it's relevant and helpful to you. Don't worry, we're not targeting your inbox, taking up important space and slowing you down. But we're there when you and your members need us. And we're always easy to find - from elXtr's online hub, our website, on social media, via our monthly member newsletter and even your back-pocket, via our elXtr icon for your smart devices.
When it comes to what's happening within the law, we're where the conversation's at and the outcomes we report are always clear, pragmatic and relevant to you and your members.
Contracts and commerce
Suppliers, customers, trading licences, T&Cs - we advise on them all.
Landlord and tenant
We can help with property issues, whichever side of the relationship you sit on.
Protecting your brand
A company's creative output and business identity are unique - we make sure they stay that way.
Running a business
We can help manage it, grow it, sell it, change it, and keep it compliant.
Staying on the right side of the law with step-by-step advice to help manage workplace disagreements amicably and cost-effectively.
Spotting how to prevent a problem before it happens can be a bit of an art but it’s often not that difficult. We help callers side-step the problems.
It's not just about the law. From paperwork to communication, we offer simple advice to keep workplace relationships optimised.
HR managers use us as a sounding board and trusted partner for a huge variety of personnel management issues.
Just as the way that you create ideas, products, services, materials and experiences can take many different forms, so the way to protect these creative efforts can vary. And the forms of protection – as well as the options you have to commercialise the end result – also varies significantly, depending on what you want to achieve and where you want to achieve it. We’ll consider what’s the most appropriate options for your business and tailor our advice to your particular circumstances. If you’re looking for help with drafting or reviewing a confidentiality agreement, or advice on the terms of a confidentiality obligation clause in a contract, we’ll swiftly provide you with the solution that works best for you.
We can keep this simple for you. If you already know that you need to comply with data protection rules, then we’ll support you through the practical steps of considering your business operations (or your activities if you’re an individual), how the legal obligations affect them and what works best commercially and legally in terms of demonstrating compliance.
It doesn’t matter what line of business you’re in, or how big or small you are, the well-used warning that ‘devils lurk in the detail’ applies equally to you – never more so than when it comes to the deals that you make, or more specifically, the terms on which you make them. We’ll swiftly provide you with the solution that works best for you. If you’re faced with a commercial dispute we can help with handling complaints pragmatically and efficiently in the best way to preserve your reputation and prevent arguments spiralling into something a lot nastier and costly.

"As a small business owner it can be hard to know exactly what your legal obligations are, let alone know who to turn to to help you meet them. The law seems complicated, and there's an assumption that legal help is always going to be expensive. That's why we believe elXtr is such an important resource. Not only does it make it easy to find the information and legal documents you need, but it's reassuringly jargon-free and available for a small monthly fee. It's like the friendly, affordable face of law."
