Onyx Online Law provides support and guidance for your business legal issuesSo Why Onyx?

The name ‘Onyx Online Law’ came about during a brain storming session with friends, and we all immediately liked it, simple as that.

Although for me ‘Onyx’ immediately brought to mind the black stone, it actually comes in a variety of colours. Onyx can be formed of parallel bands of quartz in alternating colours, often browns and milky green, but can also include layers of white, grey, red, orange and even blue.
