If there is one lesson that we draw from seven years of representing clients, it is this: the most effective representation occurs when we develop a closely integrated relationship with our client through regular interaction. We become a trusted advisor and member of your team. Thus, we recommend all clients to sign up for a recurring service plan, which we call Counsel-as-a-Service (“CaaS”).
Here are some more reasons to consider a CaaS plan with goodcounsel – all of which equate to peace of mind:
- Priority access. Enrolling in a plan maintains your status as a current client of goodcounsel, assuring that you get priority when you need urgent legal assistance.
- Greater efficiency. Handling similar services across a large base of clients enables us to take advantage of, and pass along, efficiencies of scale.
- Predictable budgeting. The more we can include in your plan, the better your ability to budget legal expenditures.
- Client Portal. As a CaaS client, you will have access to a client portal where you can submit work requests, view the status of ongoing work and share comments, all of which will be linked directly to our task management system.
Our CaaS plans are divided up into two tiers – an introductory tier and a tier for companies whose growth is accelerating. Our introductory tier is for clients just beginning their journey. Resources are at a premium, so it is imperative that responsive legal counsel is available to make certain all legal matters are handled correctly from the beginning, to avoid the need for costly “fixes” in the future. Our CaaS plans allow us to grow with the company, building a solid legal relationship for larger endeavors down the road. The second tier is our growth tier. Clients in growth tier are staffing up and offering incentive equity to their service providers. They are beginning to talk to investors or, perhaps, they’ve already closed on an investment round. These companies need a more intensive – but not full-time – legal relationship that closely resembles having a general counsel.
