Starling Bank has added Sparqa Legal as its first legal service partner.

The digital lawyer platform was designed by leading UK barristers and solicitors to provide expert help and guidance for businesses.

The services include employment contracts, commercial agreements and trademark applications, as well as data protection and health and safety-related documents.

This will allow Starling Bank’s 88,000 small business customers to cut the cost of traditional legal services.

Starling business account holders can sign up to Sparqa Legal on their mobile app via the Starling Marketplace and access 350 professionally designed templates.

Andrew Thornton, CEO at Sparqa Legal and a barrister at Erskine Chambers, said: “At Sparqa Legal, we passionately believe that, armed with the right tools and resources, smart business managers can produce many of the simple legal documents they require.”

Anne Boden, CEO and founder of Starling Bank (pictured above), added: “…Increasingly, businesses are looking to technology to help them solve old problems in new, innovative and cost-effective ways.”
