Business people want to focus on business. There are, however, a lot of legal details that need to be addressed. Many clients contact attorneys after they have already tried and failed to incorporate, register a trademark, or something else. Furthermore, a lot of clients rely on their own expertise when entering into contracts. The reason is generally a concern about the cost and a belief that everything will work out fine regardless.
The Gust Law Firm offers certain corporate services for fixed rates quoted in advance. Corporate formation documents, employee handbooks, and some other documents are offered pursuant to a price schedule. Transactions that are likely to involve negotiations and multiple drafts will require some analysis to determine an appropriate fee. Monthly rates for acting as outside General Counsel are also available.
