Invoke legal provides a subscription-based solution for businesses in need of legal support without the burden of in-house counsel costs. We understand that starting a business is costly, and legal fees can be a heavy burden to bear. That's why we've developed a unique subscription-based model that offers all the benefits of in-house legal support without the high salary costs.
With Invoke legal, you'll have access to experienced attorneys who will work with you to understand your business needs and provide legal advice and representation tailored to your culture. Whether you need assistance with contract review, regulatory compliance, or other legal matters, we've got you covered. Our subscription-based model means that you can have peace of mind knowing that we have an eye on your legal liabilities while you focus on growing your business.
We integrate into your management team to provide real-time risk observation and review so that your company can make informed decisions about how best to proceed with informed legal risk analysis.
Invoke legal provides the benefits and accessibility of having General Counsel, at a fraction of the in-house cost.
Invoke legal exists because of all of the bad legal advice I have witnessed when tech companies and startups hire for legal issues reactively instead of proactively.
When companies hire litigation counsel cold because they have been sued or because someone is challenging their SOW language, the unfortunate reality is that litigation attorneys are not business attorneys and as a generalization, they see the world from a combative standpoint that can and will inflame a dispute.
After witnessing the negative outcome of the application of this mindset and hearing stories over several different glasses of whiskey with several different founders, I was frustrated. When viewed through the lens of my experience in business and the law, it was clear that much of the advice was purely slanted towards ensuring the attorney was CYA instead of being the best advice for the particular situation and company. I was also disheartened to hear some of the settlements which, in my opinion, could have been resolved or lessened if there had been an in-house team member giving the once over to docs and decisions as part of the team.
I am well aware that a company cannot prevent legal action against them, and they cannot predict every legal issue that will arise ahead of time. The reality, however, is that with in-house counsel sitting by your side and identifying the possible risks associated with companies decision paths, founders are in a much more informed position.
So I created a unique product based on a subscription model at a cost that is less than most corporate legal retainers. The unique aspects I applied to our offerings were three-fold to help integrate our attorneys into your teams as smoothly as possible. The first is an on-site discovery to determine your current legal needs and successes from an attorney's point of view. The second is a subscription based service that encourages our clients to integrate us as an ongoing and involved member of their team. Finally, the third is the ability to cancel your subscription at the end of any month without penalty.
At the end of the day, invoke legal was designed to provide a solution to the need for ongoing, supportive, and inclusive legal opinions from someone integrated into your management team at a fraction of the cost of a General Counsel attorney. We aren't here to tell you no, we're here to tell you know this.
I wanted it to be second nature for founders reach out to us when they couldn't sleep the night without thinking, "is it worth paying the retainer," or, "I really don't want to get them involved for something that probably isn't that bad." With us, there isn't a retainer to pay because we are part of your team, and it might not be that bad, but we can give you an informed legal opinion so you can make an informed decision about your next move.
