Charlotte Business Lawyers and Commercial Litigation: General Counsel for Your Business

“He who represents himself has a fool for a client.”
-Abraham Lincoln

Businesses need lawyers. Contracts, litigation, advice—there’s a reason major companies all over the world rely on their general counsel to help them grow and maintain their organizations.

Your business needs a lawyer, too.

But as a practical matter, smaller companies often can’t afford (and in many instances don’t need) a full-time attorney. You just need access to a lawyer who understands you and your business, who can step in seamlessly to handle issues when they arise, and coordinate with the company’s operations.

How many times have you wished you could:

  • Pick up the phone and ask your lawyer a question?
  • Resolve a dispute by having your attorney send a letter on your behalf?
  • Send contracts, leases, or other documents to your lawyer for review?

Many small businesses don’t have access to any of these services. As a result, small issues turn into complicated problems—and before you know it, you’re facing expensive litigation. But if you’re like most small business owners, the cost of a full-time attorney simply isn’t in your budget.

So what do you do?

You don’t want to pay a lawyer every time you think there might be a problem. You don’t want to spend time—and money—bringing an outside lawyer up to speed on your problem, only to hear that you were on the right path to begin with. And if it turns out you do need to retain a lawyer, you don’t want to pay high hourly fees.

You shouldn’t have to choose between your budget and your peace of mind.

And now you don’t have to.

The Lord Law Firm doesn’t just talk about providing value to our clients. We guarantee it: we charge clients reasonable hourly rates of $325-$400 per hour, and offer a Value Billing Guarantee to make sure you don’t pay for what you don’t value.
