A Dedicated Legal Team at Your Fingertips
Hourly billing is old school
“We're a tech startup, so we don't have the luxury of finding out what we owe in legal fees at the end of the month... Having a consistent retainer that we can really depend on, and make budgeting decisions based off of is huge.”
Have as many conversations as necessary with your corporate counsel to make decisions confidently.
Stop questioning if you should send something to your attorney or wing it because you’re worried about the budget.
