Wallace Meyaski Law Firm (N/A:N/A)
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, September 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — New Orleans Law Firm of Wallace Meyaski, LLC has announced that they are offering designated General Counsel legal services for an agreed-upon "fixed fee" for small and mid-sized companies. Given the increasing legal and regulatory complexity of today’s business environment, many companies are faced with the choice of either committing more and more resources to pay escalating outside counsel fees, or of taking on additional headcount and the associated costs and expenses to build an in-house legal and/or human resource team.
Explains attorney K. Todd Wallace: “We set out to find a way to encourage our clients to contact us more regularly, to involve us before an issue becomes a problem, and to depend upon our extensive experience in advising our corporate clients. What we offer is a third and, hopefully, more appealing option: a cost-effective way to retain the services of experienced corporate attorneys on a fixed-fee basis to guide and advise a corporate client each step of the way.”
With the costs of legal fees soaring to all-time highs, the law firm understands that businesses are too often reluctant to call upon outside counsel for fear of uncertain and excessive legal bills. Of course, when businesses fail to address important legal, HR, and corporate issues on the front-end, the legal costs associated with cleaning up the mess can easily exceed five to six times the cost had the client simply brought a lawyer in early on.
The team at Wallace Meyaski offer this unique approach whereby the client pays an agreed-upon fixed monthly fee to serve as the client’s outsourced General Counsel. At the end of the day, this approach encourages businesses to use and rely on the firm as the “inside” counsel on a regular basis while, at the same time, providing the client with a fixed cost that that it can properly budget without having to worry about surprising and unexpected legal costs.
Kenneth Todd Wallace adds, “we have developed a unique approach to helping small to medium size businesses who cannot afford to hire an in-house lawyer. We offer to serve as a client’s General Counsel for a fixed-fee (monthly fee) based upon a defined bucket of services.” He went on to add “that in today’s environment small to medium size business are the ones that are hurt the most impacted by the increasing legal and regulatory complexity of today’s business environment, because they are not properly represented. We hope this offers a solution for that problem.”
