Big Business Legal Services for Small Business Pricing Options.

Let’s face it, legal services are expensive. As a small company, you’ve scrimped and saved and struggled to have your business come into fruition. Who can afford to hire an attorney? While attorneys are expensive, they are instrumental to avoiding regulatory and/or liability traps that could shut down your business. We specialize in providing high quality, cost efficient advice and counsel services to small businesses.
As part of our advice and counsel legal services, we assist small businesses with understanding California rules pertaining to a variety of business matters. Some of these services include:
General Counsel Services
We help small businesses ensure that the company is operating legally at all times. We oversee and identify legal issues surrounding corporate governance and business policy. We provide strategy and implement strategic goals from a legal perspective. We identify issues that could cause harm to the company. Small business owners do not have to hire a full-time general counsel to their staff in order to obtain these services. We will work on a project basis at a reasonable hourly rate in order to assist you in running your business above board.
Advice and Counsel Services
As workplaces become more dynamic, employment law is increasingly complex. Employers are continually trapped in an endless web of ever-changing labor and employment regulations. We provide advice and counsel on unions, workplace disputes and litigation, executive compensation, wage and hour issues, and workplace safety. We keep you ahead of regulations and issues, respond when thorny issues crop up, and serve as passionate defenders when disputes arise.
Some of the advice and counsel that we can provide are:
- California’s Paid Sick Leave Law
- Analysis and application of leave and reasonable accommodations
- Employee wage and hour issues
- Timekeeping, overtime, and meal and rest period compliance
- Independent contractor classification review
- Drafting Contracts and Arbitration Agreements
Litigation is expensive. Sometimes no matter what an employer does to minimize risk, an employee will file a lawsuit. We have defended multiple employers against employees in just these kinds of matters.
If you need advice and counsel or have found yourself the subject of a lawsuit, make an appointment. We can help!
