Frequently Asked Questions

How much does getting a Custom Legal Department (CLD) cost?

The same thing every month. Businesses do not like working with lawyers because they hate handing them a blank check. We take the aggravation out of receiving an invoice each month that has a surprise included. Instead, we send our CLD clients a Return on Investment Report detailing what we did during the past month and showing them how it improved and protected their business.

Our three main price points are $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000 per month depending on the level of service needed. We can custom tailor these amounts to fit a client’s particular needs.

Why do you call this service a Custom Legal Department (CLD)?

Every business is ultimately made up of departments, whether it is formally divided into them or not. There are six main ones:

  • Administration
  • Legal
  • Human Resources
  • Operations
  • Finance
  • Marketing and Sales

Business owners typically have Administration and Operations under control. However, the other four areas of management, and especially Legal, are specialized areas where the smart business owners get help.

Our service creates a fractional legal department that allows our clients to get the benefits of having integrated, on demand legal help without having to pay for a full-time attorney on staff.

That’s great, but what does a Custom Legal Department (CLD) do for me day to day?

It protects and improves your business in ways that you know you need and almost always in ways that you have not considered. Specifically, there are eight critical areas that becomes the core responsibilities of your CLD team, or otherwise known as your General Counsel. They are:

  1. Corporate Structure and Governance;
  2. Contracts;
  3. Claims and Litigation;
  4. Human Resources;
  5. Insurance;
  6. Policies and Procedures;
  7. Property;and
  8. Regulatory Compliance.

We take the complicated legal hassles of dealing with these issues off of the plate of the business owner so they can get on with running the business.

What can I expect from having a Custom Legal Department?

There are three main things you can expect.

  1. Improved Business Performance: Our goal is to turn our clients into rock star entrepreneurs. This means not only that their businesses thrive but also that their lives get better because they are not worried about their business. Because legal is a critical yet neglected need that businesses have, we come alongside management as a trusted advisor or wingman. Because Davis Law’s general counsels think like businessmen, we are able to improve the systems of our clients’ businesses to improve their bottom line and peace of mind.
  2. More Brain Bandwidth: We work proactively and preventatively to improve businesses and to prevent problems. Because management is not stuck dealing with these matters they can focus on what really matters to the business. Additionally, when problems do occur, we are there to deal with them effectively and efficiently.
  3. Reduced Legal Hassles: We handle the legal hassles that have been a drag on our clients’ businesses. This includes the ones they are aware of and also some that never crossed their mind. We are experts at dealing with legal matters and can handle them much more efficiently and effectively.

What reports do I get so that I retain control of my business and am sure I am getting value?

A key component of our work for you is keeping you informed not only of developments but also of what work we have in the pipeline. One reason for this is business clients hate not being informed about what their lawyers are doing. We think and act like a department of your business with regular reports to you. We keep these scheduled so that you know what is going on and what value is being provided. Our stock reports include Monthly Work Plans, Business Immune System Reports, Custom Legal Department Blueprints and Return on Investment Reports.
