The problem: Your business has grown to the point where you've got legal issues you're ignoring. Plus, you've left a few things to "clean up" later. It's time to put the right pieces, and people, in place to make sure you're ready to grow even more--the right way.
Here’s the answer: Partner with a team of really good people who can help you come up with a strategy or game plan for using your best ideas to grow your business. We do the behind-the-scenes legal work to make sure you are all buttoned up and good to go.
And here’s the thing: We promise to be EASY to work with. We don’t use big legal words, we find every opportunity to simplify your legal costs while staying aligned with your business strategy, and we’ll speak to you on your level as a business partner.
But we believe that behind legal problems are just business problems with simple answers.
We’ll sit with you, we’ll strategize with you, and we’ll tell you what we think you should do in plain English.
This puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to making the right decisions for your business
It’s about much more than that…
Your intellectual property should serve your bigger business purpose. It should give you credibility and back up what you are doing to your investors, partners, and customers.
Our process adds a layer of strategy & direction to your ideas, and turns those ideas into true intellectual property assets that you can take to the bank.
We get it… It’s scary to call your attorney for even small questions because you never know when you’re just chatting and when you’re going to receive an itemized bill.
We practice transparency in the way we structure our services and our billing so you know exactly what you're getting, what it will do for you, and what it will cost.
And you'll find our Fractional Legal Team services are priced to make sure you're optimizing the value of your legal budget.
Your best interest is more important to us than our billable rate.
