Every good business owner needs a trusted advisor: a lawyer who gets to know you and your business, and who is available to you for routine legal matters (employment issues, service contract reviews, corporate matters, intellectual property issues), for strategy discussions (negotiations or general business), and just to bounce ideas around with someone who has been around the block a few times.
The problem, of course, is that actually hiring in-house counsel is beyond the means of most small and medium sized businesses. Spark on Demand is not. And we’re priced to grow with you. As your business grows, your legal needs become more complex. Spark on Demand has three levels of service which are designed to meet the needs of most businesses.
Of course, in-house counsel doesn’t do everything. If a project requires specialised legal advice, additional legal staffing, or is just a large project, we will help you engage and instruct external counsel. Being from the big firms and big in-house departments ourselves, we have experience in controlling outside counsel and, more importantly, controlling their costs. And if you are drawn into litigation you can rest assured, we have your back.
We prefer that you hire Spark on Demand on an annual, renewable, contract so that we have enough time to get to know you and your business, review your priorities, triage your legal needs, and get stuff done. But we don’t require long-term commitments: even our annual contracts can be cancelled at any time.
We think, though, that you’ll see the value of having Spark as your in-house counsel, your trusted advisor, your Spark on Demand.
