Venture Law Advisors is a different kind of law firm. We offer a combination of experience and expertise to entrepreneurs and business owners who need strategic business and legal advice at reasonable rates, without sacrificing quality.
Our unique business model is based on our following core philosophies:
No Billable Hour Requirements
VLA has no minimum billing requirement for its attorneys, thereby removing the inherent conflict between client needs and law firm profitability.
By utilizing state-of-the-art technology, efficient staffing methods, unique and alternative office space, and capitalizing on our relationships with many larger law firms, VLA operates with significantly less overhead than other firms. This enables VLA to charge fees that are lower than those of lawyers with similar experience at more traditional law firms.
Fee Structures That Work For Clients
Many clients engage VLA on a fixed monthly retainer or project basis, which gives the client the confidence of a consistent and predictable monthly bill while removing VLA’s focus on billable hours.
Outside In-House Counsel
VLA specializes in serving as “outside in-house” general counsel and advisor to many of its clients, managing day-to-day transactional work and overseeing relationships with other outside firms as needed. This often enables VLA to significantly reduce a client’s legal expenses.
VLA’s attorneys all have hands-on operating experience in various industries and previous involvement with startups and emerging companies as a founder, advisor, early-stage officer, and/or investor. We can provide practical business expertise and perspective not found in most law firms.
