The cost of your company’s legal services will vary. First, you need to consider the pay structure. Often, lawyers will charge an hourly rate, which may range between $150-500 per hour. In other cases, there may be a singular, flat cost that is paid upfront. Some cases are billed on a contingency basis. This means that the lawyer will collect a percentage of the settlement amount, if they are successful in winning your case.

Other factors that can influence the cost of legal services include the size, experience and prestige of the law firm. A very experienced lawyer will charge more for their services, especially if they belong to a well-known firm.

Selecting the right legal representative is an important decision for business owners. Ideally, this lawyer will be someone you can rely on for most, if not all, of your legal needs. Thus, you want to take extra care in selecting the best law firm.

Here are some questions to ask a potential legal representative:

  • Have you handled legal services for a business like mine before?
  • What will the fees and expenses be?
  • How available will you be for general legal advice and counsel?
  • What’s the best way to communicate?
  • If talking to a large legal firm, who will be handling my legal services?
  • What types of legal services can you provide?
  • Are there services that my business needs that are beyond your expertise?

What To Expect When Working With A Law Firm

Legal services are rarely cheap, which means you want to guarantee that you’re getting the most out of your money. There are a few things you can expect:

Communication

Great lawyers will help you understand the legal matters facing your company, as this will help give you peace of mind and justify the services they are providing. In short, your lawyer shouldn’t leave you in the dark. They should be communicative and always easy to each.

Ethics

Lawyers have to adhere to a strict ethical code. These laws vary from state to state, but there are a few ethical rules you can expect, like keeping your legal matters confidential, providing competence in their legal services and putting your needs in front of their own.

Competence

It may go without saying, but you should expect that your lawyer is good at what they do and will be able to successfully handle all, or most, of your legal needs.

Upfront Fees

You and your chosen lawyer should discuss fees from the very beginning and get that agreement down in writing. This agreement will dictate how often you’ll be billed, how much and what other fees, if any, may be added.

There are many different types of legal services that a lawyer can offer you. Here are some that business owners find most relevant:

Banking And Finance Law

A finance lawyer can help advise you on loans and ensure that your financial arrangements are legal.

Corporate Law

For large companies, a corporate lawyer will help provide legal services for organizational transactions, while also regulating the rights and responsibilities of investors and stakeholders.

Employment Law

These legal services focus on the rights and obligations of employees and employers.

Business Insurance Law

Most businesses require insurance policies. A business insurance lawyer will ensure that a company has the necessary business insurance and policies in place. These legal matters include handling insurance claims from customers.

Intellectual Property Law

Some businesses have intellectual properties, which need to be protected. Intellectual property lawyers handle registering trademarks, patents, copyrights and other similar matters.

Tax Law

If your company is facing litigations, as a result of failure to comply with tax laws, this lawyer will help you settle those tax-related affairs.

What Are The Typical Softwares Used By Law Firms?

Lawyers utilize a number of different software programs to handle their client’s legal issues. They may also ask you to use some of these programs, to transmit documents or stay on top of accounting. These are some of the typical software that law firms use:

  • Clio
  • Bill4Time
  • MyCase
  • TimeSolv
  • Rocket Matter
