It's a legal subscription program that gets a lawyer involved in the day to day life of your business. We'll proactively identify risks and come up with a plan to manage them before they turn into costly headaches. You'll have the advantage of consulting with us on issues as they arise, without worrying about the cost.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are consultations and how do they work?
They're 20 minute meetings or calls to answer new questions or deal with new issues. When something comes up, schedule a call using the link in the portal or on the website. We'll give advice that answers your questions or sets out a roadmap (including a clear price) to address your issue.
Are they unlimited?
Yes, but we reserve the right to cut you off if cosultations are scheduled about the same matter after we've given you a plan and a price to address it.
What’s the best way to a consultation?
Schedule the meeting or call online, and send us a copy of any documents you hope to refer to in the meeting.
What types of legal documents and policies are included in Counsel on Call?
Will you help us to customize documents in the Counsel on Call database?
A basic review of any documents you generate is included in the subscription price. We'll spot typos, tweak wording you've inserted, and explain how to use the document. If you require custom terms or conditions, you'll need to purchase a "document customization" from the flat fee menu.
Someone's given me a contract to sign. Will you review it?
If the document can be both reviewed and explained in a 20 minute meeting, then sure! If not, you'll need to purchase a "complex document review" from the flat fee menu.
Isn't it better to wait to join until I have a legal issue?
This program is meant to be preventative. We hope to identify issues before they come up to prevent them from becoming problems.
Are all my legal issues covered by Counsel on Call?
This program is meant to provide a basic backstop to your business, and not all legal work is included. We offer preferential pricing and clear quotes on other work so there's no suprises.
What’s on the menu of flat fee services?
Many things that businesses commonly need: shareholder agreements, corporate maintenance and restructuring, service contracts for your business, customization of our templates, estate planning for the business principal, and more.
Can I cancel?
Yes, you can cancel at any point.
What if I still have questions?
That's easy. Get in touch:
