In today’s complex legal environment, corporate entities and professionals need to be very careful in commercial dealings, communications, agreements, and contracts. This is because any communication can be viewed as a contract or not a binding contract by judicial forums later when litigation reaches courts. These communications include appointment letters, suspension letters, removal letters, email communications, statutory notices, replies to announcements, warning letters, letters notifying delays, letters expressing disagreements, etc. The stakes in any business today are also very high.
Also, certain actions must be taken within a specific timeframe; otherwise, the courts may draw negative conclusions later. In such a situation, companies choose to engage a law firm with multi-discipline experience and international exposure to advising them in their day-to-day legal issues. Such an arrangement helps the companies get expert advice under one roof at a predetermined cost for the services they will avail from that firm. The law-Senate law firm is serving many companies on an “Annual retainer-ship basis,” which helps the companies get quality legal consultation without worrying about the bills. The fee is fixed in advance for a year based on the budgeted workload for all non-litigation work. Later even if the workload increases, the determining cost will not be changed within that one year.
