How much does it cost to hire a business lawyer? Lawyers can charge flat fees for many things. Examples of this might be shareholder agreements or preparing corporate structures.
For things that cannot be offered as a flat fee, business lawyers charge an hourly rate. The average rate for a lawyer is $300/hour but can be more or less depending on how many years of experience the lawyer has.
Instead of contacting a law firm with the question “how much will this cost” it is more important to clearly explain your situation. Also, you should explain what you need from a business lawyer.
Costs will be discussed prior to you signing the lawyer’s retainer agreement. Therefore, we do not recommend starting with the topic of costs. Further, the lawyer needs to understand your situation prior to making cost estimates.
