Regus is a virtual office and coworking company for lawyers and other professionals alike with over 3,000 locations in 120 countries, giving you greater flexibility with your workspace.
Locations all over. 3,000+ locations means that whether you’re conducting a deposition in Oxnard or attending an arbitration in Halifax, Regus probably has a location for you wherever you’re headed. If you end up traveling a lot during trial preparation, for example, your Regus membership guarantees you’ll have a comfortable workspace with the creature comforts to which you’ve grown accustomed.
Fully furnished office. If you decide to rent a private office from Regus, it comes fully furnished with modern furniture that you can arrange to fit your needs. You also have the option to upgrade to a larger office as you scale or if you just want more space.
Mobile app. If you need an office for the day, or if you need to book a conference room or manage your account, do it through Regus’s mobile apps for Apple or Android devices.
For most locations, Regus memberships start at $99/month for one year with unlimited access to its business lounges. The business lounges come with WiFi, printer, scanner, and copiers, and 10% off room bookings if you need to reserve a conference room for meetings.
If you prefer a coworking space, the price goes to $299/month for one year for unlimited access to the coworking space. That membership comes with all the amenities of the business lounge membership, plus a receptionist to greet guests and unfettered access of its business lounges. Regus also makes coworking available by the hour.
If you want a private office at Regus, you’ll pay $539/month for these fully-furnished offices and enjoy all the amenities of their two lower-priced memberships.
If you need to cancel, you can cancel with as little as one month’s notice. As with all recurring subscriptions and memberships, keep your “go, no-go” date in bright colors on your calendar so you don’t need to worry about an accidental and automatic one-year renewal.
If you want a taste of the Regus coworking atmosphere, you can drop by or schedule a tour.
Regus offers a business address, local phone numbers, a receptionist, and mail handling with its virtual office offerings. You can upgrade your plan to include drop-ins to the global network of business lounges, which sure beats working at a loud, crowded, and security-starved Starbucks!
All of Regus’s coworking and office locations offer hot desks, private offices, high-speed internet, telecom setups, business services, kitchen areas with tea- and coffee-making accouterments, a receptionist to greet your clients and guests, a calendar of networking events, and conference rooms for rent.
Things You Might Want To Know
Locations and amenities vary. The look, feel, size, and specifications in one space may be somewhat different in another. Make sure you take time to view your space—and, ideally, work there for a few days—to see if it’s the right fit for you.
Reserved or unreserved, that is the question. Regus offers reserved coworking spaces that come with a dedicated desk and your own local phone line and headset. You can also grab an unreserved space, but those are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Networking events and activities. Regus regularly schedules networking events and professional development opportunities at each location. Even if you’re a bit of an introvert, these present a great opportunity to meet new people, talk about your business with potential clients, vendors, or mentors, and learn something new while you’re at it.
Mail handling. For those interested in running a virtual law firm from a virtual office space, Regus offers mail handling services that let you receive snail mail at your Regus address and have them forward it (or hold it) according to your instructions.
Who Regus Is For
With so’ many locations, Regus is best suited to the lawyer who travels a lot and wants a professional workspace available in as many locations as possible. Regus is also a good fit if you’re looking for a test run before you expand your practice into a new market, or to house your virtual law firm while you live elsewhere. Regus might be a good fit for freelance, contract, and remote-first lawyers who want a desk outside of the home or on their travels.
