Legal Counsel Packages
Fixed-price legal packages that fit your business
As a small business owner, you may not have the budget for an in-house lawyer. And big CBD firms can be expensive and unresponsive.
That's why we've created flexible, fixed-priced affordable legal packages.
You simply pay in advance for a package of legal services, giving you access to your own personal solicitor for a fixed fee, all detailed up front to avoid any surprises. It's designed to minimise your exposure to conflict and claims by ensuring your business is set up and structured correctly for your growth strategy.
There's a package to suit your business – and you can move to a different one as your legal needs change.
- Easy access to a legal professional
- Flexible, fast and responsive service
- Affordable, on-tap legal support
- An expert keeping an eye on issues that affect you
- Close relationship with your lawyer
- Upfront fees and charges
At any time, you can call us to resolve any issue, promptly and professionally. We can also case-manage, drawing on and coordinating other experts to reach a resolution.
