Welcome to Windich Legal.

We are an Oxford-based boutique legal consultancy, specialising in IT, IP and commercial law. We were formed in March 2016 to provide a local alternative to the traditional law firm model. We work as an extension of our clients’ businesses, delivering a flexible service and pragmatic, commercially-focussed advice. We work across a range of sectors, but are particularly involved in the technology, digital, publishing, fashion & retail and life sciences sectors.

How can we help?

We’re a small team, and proud of providing responsive, individual attention.
We keep our business lean, which means our clients pay for our expertise and not for our office space.

What our clients say

  • Max slotted right in. He was able to build up relationships with key stakeholders very quickly and provided accurate, clear and commercially focused advice. A real support to me and the team during a challenging period. Highly recommend.

    DX Group Zoe Adlam, Chief Legal Officer
  • As the sole legal counsel at Perspectum Diagnostics there are times when I required an extra pair of hands. Max proved to be a safe pair of hands in providing the commercial legal support I needed. He is responsive, knowledgable, pragmatic and consequently, excellent value for money. He can provide a seamless adjunct to an overstretched legal team or act as an ad hoc legal counsel to smaller companies. I would have no hesitation in recommending Max.

    Perspectum Diagnostics Michelle Harte, Legal Counsel
  • Max was such a find for our online digital image website. Throughout the whole process of preparing our legal documents Max could not have been more helpful and informative. Everything was explained during each stage and his bespoke T&Cs were tailored exactly to our requirements. Nothing was too much trouble and Max definitely exceeded our expectations. We cannot recommend Max highly enough.

    GraphicModa.com Stephen Rose, Director
  • I found Max to be extremely friendly and helpful, and he had obviously done his research about my business before responding to my request, which was incredibly reassuring. I would highly recommend Max, and would certainly use his services again. Very thorough and went above and beyond my expectations.

    Morgan & French Lisa Morgan, Director
  • Max was a genuine pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable and offered insight and solutions to problems I hadn't even considered, whilst delivering a high quality service for a reasonable price. I never felt as if he was trying to maximise profit from the job or that he had any hidden costs. Throughout the work I felt he was conscious of delivering an excellent result and developing a harmonious and mutually beneficial working relationship, which we did.

    The Unknown Emporium Matthew Hill, Founder
  • We at IQ Network have found Max to be trustworthy, efficient, professional and highly competent. Having collaborated on a number of contractual requirements, Max has delivered beyond our expectations and in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend him to anyone.

    IQ Network Indy Abai, Managing Director
  • Max is a great person to work with - an eye for detail and very clear communications. Will definitely work with him if we have similar projects in future.

    Lingumi Toby Mather, Director
  • Max has been a brilliant source of support to my department while we have been filling some new positions. He is very quick, both quick to grasp what you need and also to turn around the work. All work has also been completed to a very high standard, including some complex drafting on substantial contracts. He has a calm and professional manner and has negotiated solutions on a number of tricky points. We simply could not have managed without Max over the last few months.

    Russell Group University In-House Counsel
  • Max was incredibly diligent in his review of the documentation, providing clear guidance on where risks lay and how to approach negotiations from previous experience on similar projects. I was very happy with the level of service and responsiveness. I would recommend and definitely use Max again.

    Gousto Marco Attanasio, Head of Business Operations
  • Max is, hands down, the best lawyer I had the pleasure to work with. The terms and conditions and privacy policy he created for us are not only thorough but also easy to read. Max took the time on our calls to really understand what we are trying to do, asking about every little detail, and that's something you don't see often.

    Plotist Ltd Jay Cano, Founder and CEO
  • Max provided excellent support in providing new Ts&Cs for an new product that was still evolving. Max was very effective in dealing directly with internal clients, and provided great support and was a valued addition to the team.

    Just Eat Warren Smith, Senior Legal Counsel
  • Max has been incredibly helpful in matters of contractual agreements this past year, some of which turned out to be difficult and lengthy. Throughout the entire process though, Max has been highly professional, utterly calm, and extremely patient. He was very well informed on every aspect, and able to assist in all questions that arose. We would certainly work with Max again, and are grateful to have received such generous pro bono support. Thank you!

    Justice In Motion Anja Meinhardt
  • We see Max as a part of our team rather than an external legal advisor. His advice is always clear, concise and pragmatic and more importantly he is able to interface effectively with all our internal stakeholders.
