Hi there,

My name is Ben Waldeck. I love technology and I the law. So it makes sense to me combine those passions for my career as a lawyer. It also makes sense to my clients, who have benefited greatly from my experience.

It’s kind of interesting how that came about…

You see, before I became a lawyer, I owned and managed tech companies. Although my businesses were very profitable, I received poor legal and commercial advice that cost me dearly later. Meaning the profits I thought I was building were ripped from my hands.

It was when I was dealing with the fall-out, that I learned what I had gone through could have been avoided.

Then something happened…

I became so interested in the legal aspects of business, that I decided to start again but this time, as a lawyer. What I had seen as my business failure, resulted in developing my new passion – law.

I decided to start again. I wanted to be a lawyer, so I hit the books – that was 10 years ago.

Since then, I have been a legal compliance advisor for a large Government-owned corporation, worked in a top-level international law firm and continued providing tech consulting services to entrepreneurs both in Australia and internationally.

However, more recently realised what is most important to me. My family.

This has lead me to work with more flexibility from home, in smaller law practices and has allowed me to focus on helping earlier stage startups and tech companies – which has fast become my passion.

So, how can all this help you?

I understand that you want to get on with business, with the confidence that you have your legal issues correctly covered. You need strong legal agreements with employees, contractors and suppliers> Your company and assets must be protected. You also need to be covering your ongoing legal obligations. What I help people with is certainty in business. Something I thought I had, all those years ago in my business.

You must be aware, in order to meet all of your legal requirements in your tech company or startup effectively, there must be a high-level of understanding about your company’s technology, operational methods and goals. I only know too well what can go wrong, if you miss the fundamentals of understanding the tech side, when delivering legal advice or legal contracts and other documents.

My background in technology, when combined with my legal experience means that I am able to provide you with the legal solutions more quickly, accurately in full consideration of the technology you are using or developing. I am also able to communicate the issues with you more clearly and precisely. This gives you further confidence in your business.

You can be sure that my experience in both technology and law, has proven to be a very powerful combination, for other entrepreneurs.

In order to see if I can help you, you may choose to apply for a FREE 30 Min. Legal Consultation with me.

How does it all work?

Go to the contact page and just fill in your name and details and request a time and date. Also include a little about your issue, or what you would like to chat about. I will be in contact to see if it is something that I can help you with. If it is, I will let you know and we can book in that time. If it is something that I am unable to help you with, I will let you know because I respect your time and I know it is valuable, as is mine.

There is no obligation to go ahead with anything after the chat. There is no pressure – I have no need to resort to those tactics – and I dislike such ‘sales tactics’ myself.
