The scales of justice will swing all the more smoothly this week following the launch of new internet law firm, Judicium.

Headed by chief executive Leon de Costa and chairman Subhash Shukla, the new outfit wants to become an umbrella company, acquiring and nurturing specialist internet law firms.

Judicium will unveil two new internet services: eSettle, for online dispute resolution, and Freelawyer, which provides free legal advice.

Leon de Costa said: “Our goal will be to disperse legal knowledge more widely to both the public and businesses.”
