Business Law Consultations
fee for service
Hiring a lawyer is intimidating. Clients don’t like to pay without knowing what they will get and what it will cost. Understandable. Lawyers don’t like to talk to clients without knowing that they will get paid. Understandable. Where do we go from here?
I offer fixed-fee business law consultations for exactly this reason. Consultations generally run 1-2 hours and may be booked at my office, by phone, or by video conference.
What can we cover?
Starting a new business?
Thinking about incorporating your business?
Forming a partnership?
Preparing an exit strategy?
Confirming the rights and obligations of co-founders?
Opening an office in British Columbia?
Taking on new investment?
Need independent legal advice?
Need an existing DIY legal agreement reviewed?
Filling gaps within your corporate records?
What are corporate records?
All of the above?
How I can help
I will review your questions, identify legal considerations, help you determine business priorities, and offer you options for moving forward. In many cases, a consultation is all you need. In other cases, we can refer you to specialists or confirm pricing for additional work.
If you would like us to review documents as part of the consultation, please bring them to the meeting or email them along in advance. While I will make comments and provide feedback, I will not make detailed edits to an agreement within a consultation. Our review of the documents will be limited to the consultation itself. If you require a detailed contract or lease review, we can confirm pricing after seeing the documents.
No Bitter AfterTaste
No further commitment. Nothing fancy. Just affordable legal help for business owners.
You will be invoiced upon completion of the consultation. I accept payment by Interac eTransfer (preferred), credit card or cheque.
