General Counsel RetainerSM
Business Law RetainerSM

For a minimum monthly retainer fee tailored to your business' or professional practice's size and exposure you have access to a package of business law services at discount rates.  These services are specifically tailored to meet your business needs.

You will inevitably, if not routinely, need the sound advice of a business attorney, as your business grows.  With an experienced business attorney on retainer, you have quick and inexpensive advice from someone who already knows your business.

For example, if your business or professional practice has 30 employees, the fee for the Plan is a minimum $2,000 per month for 10 hours of expert business legal assistance.  For businesses and professional practices with fewer employees, pro-rated lower minimum monthly retainer and hours are available.  To put that in perspective, the average in-house General Counsel costs $30,000-$40,000 per month, all in. 

This General Counsel RetainerSM allows you an agreed minimum amount of hours each month to respond to your immediate legal concerns by telephone, email, or meetings, including at your firm.

You have personalized attention to your particular business legal needs at a significant discount to the normal hourly rates. You receive legal assistance much like large corporations do with their in-house general counsels and corporate counsels.  For no additional charge, we may be your registered agent for legal process.

You have access to a business lawyer with 25 years of experience, who has worked privately and inside large corporations. See Resume Page here.

Under the General Counsel RetainerSM Plan, we proactively manage your legal affairs for those matters brought to our attention. The Plan  focuses on preventing legal problems, especially litigation, while facilitating your business or professional objectives. A good business lawyer knows how to advise about, and prepare for, risks without unduly frustrating your firm's business goals.

You will have access to legal advice on a discounted fee basis on issues such as:

  • firm formation strategies for startups, emerging businesses and professional practices, and businesses and professional practices in transition
  • firm formation strategies for startups, emerging professional practices, and professional practices in transition
  • risks and benefits of any business decision
  • advice regarding general corporate and commercial legal matters 
  • advice regarding general professional legal matters
  • contract negotiations, drafting, review, interpretation, claims and resolutions
  • private procurement, proposals, and contracting assistance
  • government procurement, proposals, and contracting assistance
  • international transactions, projects, and businesses
  • real estate matters
  • corporate policy development, including personnel policies, including hiring and firing
  • environmental issues
  • design, engineering and construction contracting matters

You have immediate access to a business lawyer with broad business and professions knowledge and experience. If we, as general counsel, cannot supply you the necessary legal expertise, we refer you to the most cost efficient legal specialists for such advice.

Note: While the General Counsel RetainerSM Plan excludes litigation and other non-routine matters, it includes management of such matters on your firm's behalf, similar to a general counsel's normal responsibilities.  See Outside Counsel Guidelines here.
