In accordance with growth plans set a year ago, Axess Law, which operates from ten locations in Walmart stores in and around Toronto, is planning to open in Ottowa in early 2016 and hopes to have as many as 18 outlets within 12 months.


Co-founder Mark Morris said: 'Walmart has given us absolute discretion to build out the company that we want. They’ve kept a hands-off approach, which has allowed us to remain functionally and completely independent of their activities.'

Sandwich boards

The outlets resemble car hire kiosks, according to the Financial Post. The kiosks use sandwich boards which, for instance, advertise wills at a cost of C$99. Source: Financial Post
