Legal Ready's Founder, Stephen Foley

Stephen Foley is the founder of Legal Ready.

Legal Ready’s premiere product – eBrief Ready – is an electronic briefing platform and is the fastest and easiest way for legal professionals to share briefs and collaborate securely on matters.  It has quickly become the industry standard for briefing in Australia – with more than 60% of barristers signing up to use the product.

Stephen has 30+ years’ experience developing transcript and document management systems for barristers and courts in Australia, UK and USA.

Stephen has a passion for technology that better manages complex legal matters and streamlines the legal process, creating a smarter, more sustainable legal industry and access to justice for all.

Both his grandfather and father were barrister clerks and over his career he has developed practice management systems for many of the Lists in Melbourne, as well as transcript management systems including ‘Transcript Analyser’ and ‘LiveNote’.

Having graduated from RMIT with a ‘Bachelor of Applied Science’, which he then followed with a ‘Graduate Diploma in Computers’ from Monash University, Stephen spent the period between 1994 and 2010 living predominantly in the UK and US, during which time he worked with many of the top 100 global law firms.
