Hourly Services

With or without Legal Access Plan

commercial_agreements

Company Counsel offers client/entrepreneurs the option of payment based on Hourly Fees rather than Fixed Fees, whenever it is in the client/entrepreneur’s best interest to pay for legal services based on Hourly Fees.

Although a Fixed Fee is preferable to Hourly Fees for client/entrepreneurs in most situations (because it offers them more cost predictability and because it does not reward a lawyer for time inefficiencies), there are situations in which Hourly Fees are preferable to Fixed Fees.

Charges depend on Legal Access Plan coverage:

  • $375/hour (Standard Hourly Rate) on matters not covered by the Legal Access Plan, and
  • $300/hour (Discounted Hourly Rate) on matters covered by the Legal Access Plan, but not on a “Fixed Fee” basis.

Although most services under the Legal Access Plan are provided on a “Fixed Fee” basis, we recognize that there are circumstances when an Hourly Fee would be preferable to a client/entrepreneur. One example is a “one-off” project that is too small (without other compelling circumstances) to justify a Legal Access Plan membership. Alternatively, as a practical matter, a project could involve ongoing consultations that are more general in nature and not necessarily tied to a particular Documented Core Legal Solution. Or, the project could be so large and have such significant risks that it precludes the possibility of negotiating a mutually agreeable Fixed Fee that reflects the risk and uncertainty to the satisfaction of all parties. In such situations, we offer the client/entrepreneur the choice of proceeding on an Hourly Fee basis with or without a Legal Access Plan membership and the benefits afforded by such membership as referenced above.

Legal Access Plan Members and Non-Legal Access Plan Members alike are entitled to a FREE Initial Comprehensive Legal Strategy Consultation (of up to ½ hour or more in Company Counsel’s sole discretion).
