Have you ever wanted to start your own business but didn’t know where to begin? Or maybe you own a business now and want to expand? Think hiring a business lawyer in Louisiana for your business needs or for an LLC formation will cost you an arm and a leg?
Whether you’re just starting out with your small (or large) business or you’ve been in business for a while and need some advice, Stanley-Wallace Law can help. Our Business Law Division offers business and commercial law services for Slidell, Lacombe, Covington, Bush, Sun, Mandeville, Madisonville, Pearl River, Hammond, and Baton Rouge at affordable rates that won’t blow your business’ budget for the year.
For starters, we’re local just like you and your business. Our convenient office in Old Towne Slidell means you don’t have to drive across the lake just to see your business lawyer. That being said, our New Orleans clients are one phone-call or teleconference away if they need to talk to their corporate lawyer.
Our team of attorneys has real-world, current experience owning, operating, and managing businesses— we didn’t just read about small business attorneys or commercial law in law school books.
We are mindful of your time and resources. We know your time is precious and we want you to do what you love: operate your business and spend time with your family. If we can shoot an email or text you, then we do it—and encourage you to do the same. If you prefer a phone call or a Skype conference, then we make it happen. Need to meet with a business contract lawyer or business formation attorney before you head to the office or after the office closes? We are available.
We offer three ways for you to retain our business contract services or get help with your legal questions.
In order to best serve our Northshore, Louisiana and Gulf coast and central Mississippi business community, we offer three packages for our small and large business clients.
We offer hourly rates for our commercial clients that range from $150-$195 an hour based on the attorney. If you need our services, whether it be for a contract lawyer, buy sell lawyer, noncompete lawyer, or for pursuing a claim on your business’ behalf or defending your business, then you’ll most likely utilize our services at an hourly rate. This includes negotiations, depositions, and trial work. However, we can offer flat rates for these types of matters if it’s something we can do for you. Example: a flat rate through discovery, a flat rate through a certain amount of hours in negotiations, a flat rate from discovery through trial, etc.
Flat rate services for a majority of legal items your business may need, such as a single document drafting, formation of your organization and filing with the secretary of state, or nonprofit formations, just to name a few. If you have a legal issue that may require more time and attention then we have hourly rates that won’t break your bank. Some of our flat fee services for our Slidell, Louisiana business law clients or our Lacombe, Louisiana contract law clients include:
Whether you’re a Slidell, Louisiana one man or woman operation or run a team of thousands, you need to make sure you, your business, and your assets are properly protected. One way to do that? Set up your business correctly from the outset. Stanley-Wallace Law offers a variety of flat fee business formation or modification options for our Northshore clients.
