Our story

After practising for several years in national law firms, all the while being actively involved in the philanthropic sector, Ryan sought to design an innovative structure that would allow both businesses as well as non-profit organizations and individuals in need to benefit from the highest quality of legal services.

For her part, Sophie, also a lawyer in a national law firm at the time and an actor of the social economy scene, hoped to develop a project that would make legal services more accessible for start-ups.

Together, they created NOVAlex, a new venture equal parts commercial and social, which offers one hour of pro bono legal services for every hour of paid legal services it provides.
