Meet a Small Business Owner: Dan from Sound Design Apps

In 2020, over 4 million people chose Rocket Lawyer UK for their legal needs. We decided to share these stories to find out more about our customers. 

In this interview we spoke to Dan, Founder of Sound Design Apps, about his business and experience using Rocket Lawyer.


Tell us a bit about you and your business

I have had a very varied career that has included working as a producer in music, film and TV. I started my business about three years ago and would say I am still learning.

Sound Design App delivers straw man app layouts and features with a business plan. These could then be presented to potential clients as a package for investment. My target market is varied but includes investors, corporate clients and other app designers.


What is your biggest business achievement so far?

Overall, it would be delivering exciting opportunities for clients on a confidential basis.  


What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned since you started your business?

I have learned how much value others can bring. The success of a project relies on collaboration and teamwork. I would say that when people rally around a product or project, innovative ideas can thrive and this allows teams to clearly see the possible strengths and weaknesses.


How was Rocket Lawyer able to help you?

I actually heard about Rocket Lawyer on the radio a few years ago and liked the concept. I have used Rocket Lawyer to make a number of legal documents, including a Non disclosure agreement and a Founders agreement. My experience creating the legal documents was very positive. There are no grey areas and both the documents and guides are very robust and clear. Information is updated in line with any relevant legal changes which shows that Rocket Lawyer is committed to providing information and documents that are legally compliant and can either be used as is or form the basis of negotiation and a way forward.

Being able to edit and tailor a document as you wish is very useful. Using Rocket Lawyer is a lot cheaper than going to a lawyer every time you need legal help and I would definitely recommend the service because of its clarity and efficiency.

It is also reassuring to know that you can seek specific advice and communicate with a lawyer if necessary through the Ask a lawyer service.
