Babylon, one of the UK’s fastest growing tech companies 🚀, has been using Lexoo for a wide range of legal work regularly since early 2018. Its in-house team, led by GC Henry Bennett, uses us flexibly to help free-up time to let them focus on strategic priorities.

Babylon first used Lexoo to update the company’s T&Cs, but after realising the quality and value of Lexoo, Henry and his team starting coming to us for other legal work, including employment, commercial property and commercial contract drafting and negotiation. Every time, Babylon was able to work with great lawyers, recieve commerically-focused advice, and all without the overheads of traditional firms.

Recently, Babylon has used Lexoo to help scale up its legal team with an interim commercial lawyer.

"At Babylon, we’re always looking to work with legal advisors who share our approach and values, and Lexoo fits the bill perfectly. They have proved to be an invaluable resource to my busy legal team, allowing us to achieve our business priorities much more efficiently."

How we've helped

We gave Babylon detailed proposals from four top-tier commercial lawyers with an average of 10 years’ in-house experience at companies like Expedia, AOL, JPMorgan and Lloyds. Ultimately Henry's team engaged an 8 PQE commercial lawyer on a flexible retainer basis. Her strong in-house experience working at companies such as British American Tobacco, Disney, and Airbus enabled her to hit the ground running immediately.
