Business is complicated and often messy. Having the services of professional legal counsel can provide peace of mind to business owners. From contract reviews and negotiations to buy/sell agreements and employee issues, outside counsel can provide legal insight and perspective.
Many times, though, legal counsel is called in after the fact – a situation has come up or a problem has arisen from a decision or transaction already made. Many times, the decision is made that fees charged for legal advice can exceed the cost of “small” mistake.
The legal profession has changed through the years. Like other industries, law firms have become more nimble, technology savvy and efficient. Most client work is project and fee-based. This allows for predictability of fees for the client and work planning for the firm. Hourly rates are still in place, but becoming more rare as work is scoped, planned and delivered.
