Contracts and Business Counsel
- Terms – This section constitutes the contract’s body and majority of most contracts. The terms of a contract typically describe the parties’ covenants, duties, conditions, warranties, representations, termination provisions, and more. The length of a contract usually turns on the complexity, thoroughness, and quantity of these terms as well as the extent to which the parties, their attorneys, and the contract contemplate and anticipate contingencies. Though they may require more hours of drafting, agreements that anticipate many contingencies and carefully spell out each party’s obligations are generally more secure. Of course, other factors, such as times constraints and each party’s goals, may also influence the length and thoroughness of a contract.
How much does it cost to hire an attorney to draft a contract, incorporate my business, draft governance documents, or issue other business counsel?
Pricing for these projects will be either hourly or by flat fee, depending on the project. Some projects, such as simple contracts or incorporation, may incur a flat fee, which may vary by task. Other projects, such as lengthy, complex contracts and ongoing general business counsel, may be billed hourly. Because Diab Law Firm seeks to do right by every client, the Firm will provide a detailed accounting of charges for all hourly projects and will bill only for reasonable hours and tasks. For example, the Firm will not bill 2 hours for a task that should reasonably have consumed 1 hour.
Pricing will be laid out in plain language in your paperwork when hiring Diab Law Firm. Please contact the Firm for a quote on your project. Your consultation will be free.
How long will it take to receive my document(s), to incorporate my business, etc.?
The time required for your project will depend on its nature and complexity. Diab Law Firm can prepare the first draft of a simple contract, for example, within a few days. Complex contracts will take longer. Business incorporation will take longer by nature of the State’s filing requirements and associated timelines.
