Is there any long-term commitment?

No. Though General Counsel is intended to be a long-term solution to the legal needs of your business, the services are provided on a month-to-month basis and you may cancel at any time.  Since our monthly fee is designed to spread out the cost over a growing relationship, as a law firm we have the opportunity to prove our value each and every month while taking on a substantial risk. However, we trust that our efforts will prove invaluable.

Are services in-person?

No, all services are remote, unless you are a Legacy Client, for which we will discuss when in-person meetings are appropriate.

Can I rollover unused time to the next month?

Unfortunately not. The monthly subscription fee is considered a flat fee for a scope of services as outlined in the engagement agreement business will receive upon hiring the firm.  That fee includes up to a certain number of “hours” of legal time which is significantly discounted compared to the equivalent hourly rate through a traditional law firm.  The law firm limits client load accordingly.
