Flat-Fee Packages for California Startups


I offer a suite of flat-fee packages specifically designed for startups which have more that one founder or which plan on an early management team of more than one. The goal is to balance the demands of your strict start-up budget with the need to structure your new venture intelligently, providing you with maximum value and certainty in billing when your most need it. (For clients wanting to start a new venture to be a freelancer or self employed, another flat-fee arrangement may be more appropriate, as your legal needs will be fewer.)
