A Newquay entrepreneur has been shortlisted for a national award for his ground-breaking legal tech venture. 

James Brien has been nominated by the eminent National Entrepreneurship Awards 2023 for his business Easy Online Divorce.

The firm is heralded as a revolutionary alternative to traditional solicitor-led divorce processes.  

The 10th National Entrepreneur Awards aims to shine a light on business moguls making waves in their respective industries and giving back to their communities.  

The star-studded awards night, set for Monday, October 2, will be hosted at the National Entrepreneurs Convention at the ICC in Birmingham. Easy Online Divorce has reportedly saved British families £2.5 million in legal fees In just under three years since its inception.  

The company has a 4.9 rating on Trust Pilot from 287 reviews, marking it as the UK’s top-rated divorce service. 

James said: “While solicitors play a crucial role, we’ve integrated them seamlessly to handle intricate legal matters.  

“Meanwhile, our dedicated customer care professionals manage client interactions, ensuring a blend of superior legal guidance and warm customer service, all at a cost that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.” 

James’s inspiration for Easy Online Divorce was drawn from his personal challenges navigating a divorce. 

Recognising the emotional and financial toll of conventional processes, he introduced an affordable, efficient solution to the market. Further establishing his expertise, James has sold close to three thousand books on the subject, consolidating his position as the UK’s foremost authority on divorce. Esteemed platforms such as the BBC, Sky News, Sun, Mirror, Independent, and This is Money have previously spotlighted his insights. 

Committed to Cornwall’s growth, James champions local employment. 

The business has four full-time employees drive the success of Easy Online Divorce, with plans on the horizon to onboard an additional legal advisor to cater to the company’s growth.
