LHS Solicitors has launched public subscriptions to its transformative digital hub – elXtr – an unprecedented DIY legal service that could save SMEs thousands.

elXtr offers SMEs instant access to more than 1,000 legal tools, guides and templates which can help provide key information on legal issues without the associated cost.

Previously only available to existing customers and clients of LHS, elXtr is now available on a subscription basis to everyone. A comprehensive subscription costs just £45 per year and provides access to all assets on elXtr.

The launch of public subscriptions on elXtr means even more SMEs and business owners can access legal and business information, giving them the ability to manage legal and business issues in an easier, more cost-effective way.

Merlie Calvert, head of business for elXtr and LHS’ director of sales and business development, said:
“elXtr was created by LHS to solve the challenges faced repeatedly by our customers. We recognised by creating an innovative hub where they could access legal and business information, we would be enabling SMEs to gain knowledge and advice that would normally be difficult or expensive to obtain.

“elXtr proved to be such a successful platform of expert information for our customers that we took the initiative to allow as many people as possible the opportunity to access the elXtr hub, to help even more SMEs and business owners succeed.

“It also encourages SMEs to really unlock their networks and discover the wealth of support and opportunities that those around them can, and usually generously do offer, if you’re not afraid to reach out and ask.”

Richard Candy, managing director of LHS Solicitors said: “Digital disrupters are transforming numerous industries and elXtr was created with the goal of doing just that to the legal sector. After seeing the success of elXtr with our customers, we realised we had achieved our objective and wanted to make such an essential digital hub available to even more SME and business owners.

“We’re certain elXtr is a tool that will enable people to help their businesses flourish even further and we look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on a wider audience of SMEs.”
