Monthly Legal Retainer Services in Bulacan
ABI Law provides monthly legal retainer services in Bulacan as a convenient and inexpensive option for those corporations, businesses, and even private individuals who need retainer lawyer services on a regular, constant or recurring basis.
Scope of Monthly Legal Retainer Services
The most basis services covered by a monthly legal retainer contract are the following:
Drafting and review of routinary agreements, contracts, and other documents that are used in the ordinary course of the client’s conduct of its affairs;
Drafting and sending of demand letters and responses to demand letters;
Drafting and review of standard employment templates;
Providing advice on the client’s legal compliance with Philippine regulatory requirements;
Drafting of legal opinions;
Supply of full text of laws, Supreme Court decisions, and administrative rules and regulations, upon request by the client; and
Representation of client in routinary meetings done in the ordinary course of the client’s conduct of its affairs, such as a meetings with employees of the client for labor matters.
It must be stressed, however, that not all legal services are covered by a monthly legal retainer agreement. For instance, litigation proceedings, immigration and intellectual property transactions, transfer of land title, and other special projects are outside the scope of a standard legal retainer arrangement. Likewise, it is a standard practice for law firms to provide a limit or cap to the number of hours covered by a legal retainer agreement.
In case of Arceo Law, however, we provide the monthly legal retainer services to our clients without limit as to time and number of services requested, provided that the service is within the scope of the engagement agreement. In a sense, it can be considered as unlimited legal services for a fixed or flat monthly fee. For a higher lawyer retainer fee, we can also customize the monthly legal retainer contract if the client wants to include services that are normally excluded in a retainer agreement.
Monthly Legal Retainer Fee
The monthly legal retainer services agreement is not for everyone. This can provide value for money only to those who regularly need the assistance of a retainer attorney. If you need to avail legal services on a regular, constant or recurring basis, a monthly legal retainer services agreement is a much cheaper option than employing a full-time salaried in-house counsel or even paying the law firm on a per-transaction or hourly billing basis.
The monthly legal retainer fee depends on several factors, such as the volume and kinds of service required, the duration of the agreement, and the number of employees of the client, among others.
