For small businesses that do not wish to perform a cost benefit analysis each time they e-mail or call a lawyer, Moreau Law offers flat fee outside general counsel servicing to bridge the gap between hourly billed legal services and ad hoc legal services.
The outside general counsel servicing program offers different tiers of flat fees based on the operational needs of the business. Included in the flat fee are an initial assessment and a weekly meeting. The initial assessment of your business operations is designed to get an understanding of immediately outstanding legal issues that require addressing. The weekly meeting (at your offices, by phone, or by videoconference) is designed to ensure continued familiarity with your business operations so that Moreau Law can spot and identify potential legal issues, and so that you get an opportunity to discuss any legal concerns you have. This maximizes the value of advice given to quick questions you might have by phone or email.
In addition, included in each program is a generous allowance of attorney hours for work on legal affairs (such as reviewing and drafting contracts, or responding to demand notices) and a generous allowance of consulting hours (for when you have questions that can easily be addressed by phone or email). The initial assessment and the weekly meetings are not counted toward either of these allowances. They are simply to ensure that we better understand your business operations so that we may provide better and practical solutions to meet your objectives.
