The goal of Outsourced General Counsel is to become a strategic partner to your business, helping it grow by managing risk and capitalizing on opportunities. But this type of active involvement is only possible when legal fees are appropriately priced to enable the business to include its legal counsel in day-to-day decision making in order to develop a long-term, trusting relationship and understanding of the business.
By leveraging the low overhead costs of a virtual office, Outsourced General Counsel’s standard hourly rate is about half the cost of traditional law firms (where a large majority of the attorneys have no actual experience as in-house legal counsel). Keeping true to our business-centric and practical approach to the practice of law, we offer the below progressive fee structures that allow clients to better anticipate and budget for monthly legal costs or special projects. As a result, you are able to incorporate legal strategy, review, and advice in your day-to-day decision making because of its affordability and predictability.
Outsourced General Counsel is available to provide part-time, on-demand general counsel services as requested by your business at the standard rate of $265.00 per hour.
The Essential, Core, and Advantage Monthly Fee Plans not only provide a budget-focused approach to legal services, but also encourage regular communication between your business and Outsourced General Counsel so that today’s business decision doesn’t create tomorrow’s unexpected legal problem. The Monthly Fee Plans offer increased discounts on our standard hourly rate and increased flexibility to use the hours of general counsel services purchased when needed as the number of hours and term of the selected plan increase. In addition, services provided in excess of the selected plan hours will be billed at the discounted plan rate (versus the Standard Hourly Rate of $265/hr)
