Who is behind the LawPlan service?
Pay monthly legal services from LawPlan are delivered by Phil Harmer and business partner Antonia Rees-Brown. Based in the UK, they both run Stormcatcher Business Lawyers and developed the idea for LawPlan when they identified a clear need in the market for an affordable pay as you go legal support package for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Phil Harmer took an unconventional route to becoming a Commercial Lawyer. He began his career working in the motor trade and built a successful vehicle sales, financing and repair business. He ran into a legal problem during this time, which he researched and handled himself, feeling there was no accessible and reasonable alternative. This sparked a change in career direction as his fascination with the law took off.
Phil graduated from the University of Kent with qualifying law degree LLB(Hons) and a postgraduate degree (LLM) in International Commercial Law specialising in Corporate Governance, Consumerism, Banking and Commercial finance. Qualified as a barrister, graduating from BPP Law School completing the Bar Professional Training Course, including Commercial law, International Trade and the Alternative Dispute Resolution. Commercial Mediator, International Arbitrator and registered learning provider.
Business Manager, Antonia Rees-Brown works alongside Phil running the day to day operations of Stormcatcher Business Lawyers and LawPlan. Antonia has a strong background in training, development and teaching, and she built up and since sold a successful small business. Both Phil and Antonia have extensive commercial experience, understanding the diverse needs of small business. Their experience prompted them both to create the LawPlan business legal services packages.
