Shanti Rubens, B. Com LLB
Australian lawyer with over 20 years experience

Hi, my name is Shanti. I’m a qualified barrister and solicitor and the founder of Legal Zebra.

I’m happy to answer your questions, whether you want help with choosing or drafting your legal template.

For more complex matters or if you need legal documents customised for your requirements, I will let you know the charges in advance.

Because I have drafted the legal templates on this site myself, I can often solve client’s issues quickly and cost effectively.


​MY PERSONAL APPROACH

I am dedicated to providing clients with legal advice based on the principles of value, integrity and clarity.

When I’m not wrangling Zebra’s or writing contracts, I'm often practising yoga.

With a passion for travel, my clients are accustomed to receiving legal advice online from remote parts of the world.


MY PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

I have over 20 years experience drafting and enforcing legal documents and understand the practical context in which they are applied.

In addition to working as an online lawyer with Legal Zebra, I practice with Rubens Legal, a boutique commercial law firm based in Melbourne, Australia.

I started my own practice in 2003 and since then I’ve serviced businesses both big and small from Ikea to local start-up enterprises.

Previously, I practised with top tier law firms including DLA Piper and Maddocks and acted as in-house counsel for Dubai’s national airline Emirates and British global travel company Thomas Cook, working out of Dubai, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Shanti is like an encyclopaedia of legal and business knowledge. When I call him about legal issues, I usually always walk away with more ideas for my business. He has a very good grasp on the industry so when he combines his business experience with his legal brain you can be sure you're getting good advice. He is generous, approachable and fun to work with. I genuinely feel like he has my back and if I could put him in my pocket, I would.

Thanks Olivia. I'm touched.

Legal Zebra provides very easy to use legal documents. The samples provided really gave me an indication of what templates I needed to download. All the information on the website is very helpful and straightforward.



I downloaded several templates as I needed to come up with mix and match for a very specific legal agreement template that suited my needs. I contacted Mr. Shanti who was very friendly and helpful.



I could revise and choose which clauses were more convenient to my purpose and fully customised the template to my needs without paying astronomical fees.The purchase process was simple and quick.



I would definitely recommend the service.

Thanks Sonia. I am happy the documents were able to solve your unique problem.
