Our legal services for small businesses and growing companies

As a growing business, good legal counsel is key, and so often, legal mistakes are costlier to clean up after-the-fact instead of getting it right from the beginning. Our business lawyers can perform a comprehensive audit of your business and make recommendations for improvements and efficiencies and educate on best practices. We promote fee transparency and prefer alternative fee arrangements, often providing services on a fixed fee agreed to up front. Take a look at Meyer Law’s fixed fee packages below if you run an emerging growth company or small business.
