Less legal anxieties, more growth
As a small business owner, you’ve got your hands full. Let me take the legal hassles and anxieties off your plate.
A Virtual Legal Department plan gives you regular access to a lawyer for such things as proactive, on-the-fly legal advice, contract review and negotiation, and assistance with corporate compliance and records.
If your company is smaller but fast growing, you might find yourself needing legal services regularly and often on a moments notice. Finding a lawyer, conducting your vetting and due diligence, getting them up to speed on your particular business, and then trying to fit into their schedule can be a slow, drawn-out process. Of course, “slow” has no place in a fast growing business.
With my subscription legal services, for a reasonable monthly fee, I agree to be available for your company’s legal needs up to certain scope and other limits. Got an employee issue? No problem. We can talk about it. Need a contract reviewed? Just send it over. Additionally, since I only accept a small number of subscription legal services clients, you can be assured that you will always be at the head of the line when you need help with a bigger project.
A Virtual Legal Department Plan for growing your business right
If you’re in the process of building out your business processes, and structure, a Virtual Legal Department plan can also be a good way to spread out the cost of startup legal services as you grow. For example, if you have a new business where you will be hiring employees and operating an e-commerce website all within the first year of operation, a subscription plan can allow us to work on all of those pieces: entity formation (like an LLC), legal aspects of web-based commerce (website terms and conditions, privacy policies and practices, advising on digital tools and payment processors), employee policies, benefits planning, profit-sharing programs, and more, over a period of two years with the cost paid monthly.
Plans are customizable
Virtual Legal Department plans are customized to fit the unique needs of your business and can include:
