I'm Rizwana, but you can call me Riz

I’m a lawyer with over 16 years of experience, I’m an entrepreneur and I work in the circus by night. Ok, that last part isn’t true. But I am passionate about all things creative! That’s part of what led me to start Foundd… Over the years working as both a lawyer and as the founder of an ecommerce business of my own, I discovered that there were a huge number of amazing designers, creatives and fellow entrepreneurs out there who had fantastic ideas and business models, but had no access to the legal ins and outs that are imperative to running a fully legitimate, successful and protected company. I know from experience how difficult and time consuming it can be to build a business from the ground up, and making sure you’re doing everything the right way can be daunting. Honestly, some days it can totally suck. It was those days that gave me a kick in the pants and inspired me to share what I’ve learned with other brilliant, like-minded individuals!

I know from experience how difficult and time consuming it can be to build a business from the ground up, and making sure you’re doing everything the right way can be daunting.

I started Foundd as a way to make all of that boring, scary, overwhelming legal stuff both accessible and affordable to entrepreneurs, creatives and designers, so they can have the best shot possible of creating a legal, lucrative, kick-arse brand and business they can share with the world! If any of this sounds like you, let’s chat! Let’s get that business booming! I’m also not opposed to doing so over a glass of wine. Just sayin’.

Simplicity


We have taken the jargon, heavy (but important) documents and processes and dissected it into easy to understand bite-sized consumable concepts.

By simplifying the world of law we empower small, independent, creative business owners to use legal practices to grow their businesses. We're no fluff, taking the guess-work out so everyone has the right to impartial, accurate legal advice.

Human


At Foundd Legal, we place importance on treating humans like humans, not encyclopaedias or companies who know every complicated and technical detail.
We separate ourselves from competitors by being approachable in language and attitude to present legal services as an attainable, everyday essential.

Transparency


The legal system is designed to be transparent, useful and helpful for everyone. However, to most people business law can seem too hard, too complex and goes straight in the too hard basket.
We're here to change that perception by being fully transparent, open and honest lawyers who are both true to ourselves and our clients. Transparency is essential to building trust with our clients and presenting law in a positive, beneficial light.

Curiosity


We have answers to the questions our clients can't find consistently on Google and solutions to the problems other lawyers disregarded. We love curly questions, the simple ones and those that get our geeky lawyer senses excited.The more we explore, the more we learn. By showing our clients we're prepared to do the research, and we are open to every question - this conveys not only our approachability but also our willingness to dig deeper
