Engagement involves signing an engagement letter and your agreement on a fee structure that works for you. We provide services that can meet your budget for the middle market, startup, non-profits, and publicly traded companies. Flat-fees plans offered on Strategic Sessions, early-stage transaction/dispute/formation sessions, and flat-fee projects work best for clients. ECG services and Virtual Board of Advisors employ recurring fee the parties budget for in their operations. All ad-hoc or out of scope legal services are hourly fees and generally apply to novel facts, disputes, or transactions. Fee structures disclosed in writing, signed by you before the engagement forms our understanding. We reserve the right to accept any assignment or not based on the facts and circumstances.
Are you experiencing surprise legal bills? Concerned about expenses and losses? Do you need to manage compliance and legal issues? External General Counsel (ECG) removes this risk, stress, loss, and anxiety. Typical ECG clients have the following needs for legal services but are experiencing declines, immobilized, or unsure:
Strategic Sessions are a block of time, typically half and full day, to tackle a large and complex problem such as the formation of an entity, merger or acquisition, information privacy and security, intellectual property plan, dispute, litigation, or request for proposal development. You will leave this session with a plan and as many documentary tools as are possible to create within the time constraint. Execute the plan yourself or use it to guide your in-house, external counsel, legal team, or employees. Offered as a flat fee that includes preparation, session and follow-up call after the session.
MLG will build, curate, and chair the three to five key individuals you need to inform your business successfully. Our process ensures confidential candor that avoids conflicts of interest with a business-driven theme each month. The Virtual Board of Advisors (VBA) involves a recurring monthly meeting for companies that do not have the size, time, or resources to impanel a full-time board of advisors or are underwhelmed with volunteer boards.
