In-House Counsel

Large companies keep a large staff of in-house lawyers to attend to all its legal needs. Smaller home-grown businesses do not have the budget to maintain that expense. However, there are affordable ways of having a business attorney on retainer for when legal needs arise.

Ward Law offers subscription-based services for small businesses. For a fraction of the cost, you can have me available to consult on day-to-day issues and address your legal concerns.

These plans offer a variety of services that can be customized for your needs. Services in these packages may include:

  • Formation and corporate governance documents, including articles of incorporation, operating agreements and member control agreements;
  • Regulatory compliance consultations;
  • Regular check-ins;
  • Annual reviews;
  • Vendor agreements and warranties;
  • Employment and independent contractor agreements;
  • Employee handbooks;
  • Non-competition and non-solicitation agreements;
  • Lease review;
  • Business purchase agreements; and
  • Buy/sell agreements.

If the service involves a document, that includes drafting, reviewing, and negotiating with another party, if necessary. Ward law can also guide you through employee matters including employment policies, employee handbooks, as well as various employment agreements.


With the service variety and cost, in-house counsel is not a privilege limited to large companies. Your small business can also benefit from the peace of mind and experience of the business lawyer at Ward Law, PLLC.
