Affordable, Flexible Fee Options

We meet our business clients’ needs and budgets with flexible fee options.  Whether your needs are big or small, ongoing or intermittent, we have an option that is right for you.  Saving you money while delivering superior work is what we are all about.

We offer flat fee options for specific projects, as well as affordable monthly General Counsel Plans.  Flexibility in pricing helps us meet your needs and budget, deliver quality service, and complete projects.  No surprise bills or costs!  Keeping the work moving without breaking the bank is what business is all about, and we take that principal to heart in everything we do.

Team Members, Not Just Advisors

Your attorney is a trusted team member, not an aloof advisor.  Working with our attorneys is like walking down the hall with your coffee to discuss business questions and issues with any member of your team.  Your attorney works with you to discuss your needs, consider strategies, develop work lists, prioritize the work, and execute.

At our firm, you do not get handed off to paralegals, associates, or other staff.  You work directly and only with your attorney.  Knowing you and your business and growing that relationship is what makes our service second to none.

Project Representation

Flat fee project representation is the perfect solution for small projects and immediate needs with well-defined scopes.  Retainers are a traditional legal billing solution that works well for clients when the project scope is not well defined initially or when the project has moving targets.

These project representation options work really well for businesses with specific, immediate needs and goals.  It’s what most people think of and are looking for when hiring a lawyer – flat fees and retainers.  These options are designed to tackle specific projects immediately.  Under either option, efficiency is the name of the game.

Whether the needs are big or small, intermittent or ongoing, these flexible fee options fit the bill.

Project Pricing Options

Flat Fee

Under a flat fee option, a specific project (or work scope) is completed for a pre-paid set fee.  In collaboration with you, we specifically identify the work that will be performed and provide a flat fee quote to perform that work. This option is useful for small, specific needs when no other work is contemplated. Examples of project representation include having a short contract reviewed or a small drafting project. When you know exactly what you need and just need it done, this option is a great fit!

Hourly/Retainer Fees

When your business needs are ongoing or the project is larger, a traditional retainer with hourly billing is a tried and true option. The firm is paid an upfront retainer which it bills against each month. A detailed statement is provided showing the work performed and the amount billed against the retainer. The retainer is replenished, and any balance for work over-and-above the retainer is paid. Once work is completed, a final statement is issued and the remaining retainer balance is refunded. Simple and traditional, this option has a lot of appeal for some clients.

General Counsel Plans

Is your business looking for a long-term relationship with experienced business counsel?  General counsel plans are the perfect option!  Does the business need a large legal project but you need to finance it?  General counsel plans can also be used to budget pre-set legal payments over several months.

What are general counsel legal services?  General counsel plans provide on-demand counsel and advice to businesses.  They’re a good fit for businesses that desire a long-term, strong relationship with counsel.  They are designed to meet the ongoing needs of the business, keep work moving, and stay on time and on budget.

Until recently, a general counsel was a lawyer who was an employee of the business, officing inside the business, and providing day-to-day legal advice on-demand.  Historically, a general counsel level of support was reserved to very large businesses that could afford to staff full-time in-house attorneys and legal departments.

Times have changed.  Small and mid-sized business can gain the benefits of a general counsel relationship while maintaining a fixed, affordable monthly budget.

Drew | McCallum’s flat-fee monthly general counsel plans make this level of legal support affordable and available to businesses of all sizes and needs. As your business needs change from month to month, you can easily move between the monthly plan sizes – or create your own custom plan – saving you money.  There are no long-term commitments.  Never pay for more general counsel legal services than your business currently needs.

Whether you are a sole proprietor, a growing family business, a mid-sized company, or a start-up – we have a plan for you!
