Beau Atkins

Founder and CEO

Evolve Family Law

Beau Atkins is a Lawyer, Founder and CEO of Evolve Family Law. In 2015 with only 2 years at the bar, and already frustrated with traditional practice, he recognized a need for change for him to find fulfillment within the legal profession. Simplification was crucial and with the help of a lawyer with a bit more seniority, he established one of the first family law exclusive law firms in the city of Saskatoon.

In 2020, to vastly improve processes and systems Beau turned his focus to standardization and started Evolve Family Law. He enlisted non-legal subject matter experts to reduce the burden on a lawyer and increase productivity, through task management and automation. This inspiration helped him pursue unbundled and flat-rate services, both customary at the firm, and provided his team the ability to deliver a consistent experience for clients while advocating “no client will receive an unexpected bill or charge”.
