FORGET ABOUT HOURLY BILLING. FORGET ABOUT THE REGULAR WORKDAY. WHEN YOU HIRE A LAWYER TO PROVIDE “CONCIERGE” LEGAL SERVICES, YOU ARE HIRING THAT LAWYER TO TAKE YOUR CALLS NO MATTER THE TIME, NO MATTER THE DAY. YOU ARE PAYING FOR ACCESS – AND THAT IS WHAT YOU GET.
A “concierge” engagement differs from the ordinary attorney-client engagement. Clients pay a monthly fee for access, advice, assistance, and basic representation. This does not ordinarily include the cost of active litigation, which frequently includes significant legal research, drafting and court appearances, but it does help businesses and high net-worth clients to anticipate and avoid risks that frequently result in those additional costs.
For small to mid-size businesses, concierge counsel can be a lifesaver. Significantly less expensive than hiring a full-time general counsel, you can enjoy the benefit of an experienced lawyer at a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee. In this role, Darrell Phillips helps clients reconcile employment disputes, draft and review contracts, negotiate settlements, communicate with adverse parties, measure and respond to legal risk and, most importantly, respond to the unanticipated business crisis without making clients wait until the formal start of business hours.
