Who is a typical client of Contracts, Law & More?

Typically, I help small businesses, tech startups and individuals with their commercial contracts. If you have something else in mind, please Contact me to explain your situation. If I do not feel it is within my area of expertise, I might be able to recommend another firm that would be more suitable.

Does Contracts, Law & More provide a free initial consultation?

I would be happy to have a phone or email conversation to determine whether my firm is the right fit for you and discuss my services in more detail.

Please Contact me to schedule a time to speak.

How do I hire Contracts, Law & More?

Please go to the Services page where you can initiate the process of hiring me online. After we begin the engagement, you also will be able to securely upload files, download the completed work, and pay online using a credit card or Paypal.

For convenience sake, and to keep fees as low as possible, I try to maintain a 'virtual' practice, doing as much as is practical online using secure, well-regarded applications such as Box, Skype, Google Apps, Stripe and others.

What does it mean to "review" a contract?

A "contract review" means making notes on the contract to indicate where there are issues, or where issues might arise, and suggesting how you might deal with it if you have some room to negotiate; indicating what terms would be beneficial for you to have in the contract. I might suggest some alternate clauses if I feel I can do so with a reasonable time commitment - completely at my discretion. I will not re-draft every clause that I would normally write differently if I were drafting a contract from scratch.

Do I have to pay a retainer or a deposit before you do work?

"It depends", as most lawyers love to say.

In both cases described below, when you first go through the checkout process, you provide your payment details and authorize a future payment, but payment is not processed right away (unless you choose to pay using Paypal and use your bank as the funding source rather than your credit card. It's a limitation of Paypal in this situation). 

If you hire me for General Legal Advice on an hourly basis, once the engagement is formalized and the work begins I ask that you pay for one hour of work in advance. I will send you an invoice periodically as services are rendered.

If you hire me to review a contract at a fixed price, payment is processed once the engagement is formalized and the work begins. If you would prefer an alternative payment arrangement, feel free to get in touch with me to discuss options.

Since I prefer happy clients, I also offer a pretty solid Refund Policy should my services not meet expectations.

What form of payment do you accept?

You can pay either by credit card or Paypal through a secure site provided by Shopify or Paypal.

For any other form of payment, please Contact me to discuss a possible arrangement.
