Here is a summary of our very first Lawyer for the Day session. I did this one with my partner, David E. Reed.
We arrived at 8am, set up our computers and printer, and went to work until shortly after 5pm.
In just a single day, we completed the following projects:
- Prepare and customize an Employee Agreement and confer with the executive team to review and discuss the Employee Agreement;
- Prepare and customize a Master Independent Contractor Agreement and Form of Statement of Work and confer with the executive team to review and discuss these documents;
- Prepare Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws and Shareholder’s Agreement and confer and review these corporate documents with the founders and shareholders;
- Prepare a Promissory Note and confer and review the note with the shareholders;
- Review and revise a Master Services Agreement with a major supplier, and confer assigned executives to review and discuss the proposed changes.
That's a ton of legal work to complete in a single day. We were able to get this much work done because we worked at the client's office and because the executive team understood going in that we would need their time and attention throughout the day to make critical decisions. We were also able to become more familiar with our client's business and goals. This always happens when we make house calls, and this is the reason why we work on site at our client's office when possible.
Our client was delighted with our work and the flat fee they paid for Lawyer for the Day session, and we were thrilled to deliver more value than we charged for our work and services.
The Lawyer for the Day concept has been tested and proven!
