Legal Subscription Services
To get started on any of the above,
schedule a consultation, and we’ll do the rest.
There is no hourly fee. The monthly fee covers everything in your chosen Legal Subscription Plan.
Depending on the plan you purchase, you will receive a number of substantive legal projects as well as strategy and check-in calls. See above for details on each plan.
We’ve carefully curated which services make the most sense. Trademarks, related letters, and contracts are ongoing issues that all growing companies need help with, so we’ve included all of those, amongst others. Again, see above for specifics.
Yes! Under the baseline $6,000 subscription, you get one strategy call per quarter, in which we can discuss your plans and legal strategy, both current and future. The number of strategy calls you receive goes up under the $12,000 and $15,000 plans. You can also email us about any current projects.
The minimum is three months (it’s difficult to get any traction on less than that.) There is no maximum number of months you can be on your chosen Legal Subscription Plan – you can continue your subscription indefinitely or stop it after a few months.
Since we budget our time in advance, we need 30 days' notice to cancel your legal subscription.
The legal subscription automatically renews on a monthly basis until you cancel the subscription by giving us 30 days' notice.
We do not have a refund policy. But again, you can always cancel with 30 days' notice.
Enough that if we billed you hourly, you’d pay far more than the monthly subscription. It’s the best legal value in the United States.
The amount of time each project takes varies (so we cannot guarantee anything), but 14 days for filing trademarks and contract drafting is a reasonable number to expect in most cases.
Please note that given the nature of trademark and copyright registration at the federal government, we can guarantee timely filing but cannot guarantee registration (that’s up to them.) The federal government typically takes several months to examine each trademark or copyright application. Sadly, speed is not the government’s thing, so the sooner we get your requests filed, the better.
No problem – talk to us. Depending on what work you need done, we may be able to include it with your subscription. Every situation is different, and it will depend on a number of factors, but again, talk to us – we’re here to help.
The trademark application service includes a complete federal search for conflicting trademark registrations, an opinion letter as to the viability of your trademark’s success, and the USPTO application process. Under the legal subscription plan, the trademark application does not include the USPTO filing fee (which is currently $350)
The ongoing trademark monitoring will begin once we file a trademark for you.
Monitoring allows us to track when someone is infringing your mark. At that point, we can decide together on a course of action, and if you wish to proceed with a cease-and-desist legal project, that will count as one of your projects for the month.
While we draft letters, contracts, handle trademarks, and give consultative advice, we are not a law firm that seeks to handle representative litigation.
We should add “anymore” to that because the founder of Mobile General Counsel, Ashley Kirkwood, left a successful career as a Fortune 500® corporate trial lawyer. She’s more than comfortable in Federal Court arguing complex issues, but Mobile General Counsel currently has a more consultative focus.
That stated, if you are dealing with a business-to-business dispute, we would be happy to guide you through that process and make recommendations about the next steps. However, we cannot represent you in court. Litigation is extraordinarily expensive, and we prefer to guide our clients through that process and make sure they understand all their options before taking that route with a local legal team.
