Outside General Counsel Fees

Agreements are available on either a six-month or twelve-month contract. All contracts present a substantial savings from the firm’s hourly rate for business law services (which, depending on issues being evaluated, varies from $275 to $350 per hour). There are additional perks and a reduction in cost with the twelve-month contract. Terms and conditions will be set forth in an Engagement Agreement, which must be agreed to by the Parties before any attorney- client relationship will commence.
