How it works
Never receive an hourly bill
Take the time you need for legal peace of mind. Unmetered communication and a flat monthly rate mean we’re always a Slack, Zoom, or a text away.
Solutions at your pace
Because “law firm” and “agile” DO belong in the same sentence. You get responses in under 48 hours with resolution in weeks, not months.
Dedicated support, not a paid-for-hire
We ‘get’ startups and entrepreneurs. We don’t just deliver top-notch contracts, we advise and consult so you grow strategically at every phase of business.
“A law firm with the mindset of an entrepreneur”
“I can always rely on Stansbury Weaver to watch my back and see around new corners. They provide a high-level strategy that’s actionable and achievable while still mitigating risk. It’s really rare to find that in a law firm. Their service is easy and accessible, which is exactly what I need to launch and grow any new venture.”
-Matt Gartland, Co-Founder & CEO of SPI Media
Need us? Slack us
Unmetered communication gives you the freedom to reach out when you want and the space to identify and solve legal challenges long before they surface.
Direct Slack access
Ping us in your private Slack channel and invite relevant team members to join for faster responses to your needs. You’ll always hear back within 48 hours.
Regular status calls that keep us aligned and on target. Bring new issues to the table and get status updates for open projects.
Step back and take a strategic look at your business and operations. We offer periodic risk assessment and strategy meetings to review the bigger picture.
“I never have to wonder if I’m doing things correctly”
“The experience and communication style at Stansbury Weaver is totally different from any law firm I’ve worked with. I recently had a question about one sentence of a contract. They not only got back to me within a couple of hours, they talked me through it and made improvements that made ME look good in front of my client. They’re accessible and consultative without being financially intimidating.”
-Hilary Swan, Founder, Rebel Scout Consulting
But do you really do things differently?
On-demand, dedicated legal counsel for one flat monthly fee. (It’s actually that simple.)
We’re about as different from an old-school law firm as you can get. Our clients are agile, adaptable, and collaborative.
Just like us. (If we do say so ourselves.)
The biggest difference? Our clients come first. We get to know your businesses as well as you do and support you as it evolves and changes.
But really, communication is at the heart of what we do. We don’t put caps on your monthly calls, questions, or requests. That gives you the freedom to talk through your concerns– big or small– and often means we identify and solve legal obstacles before they become an issue.
We don’t even own a stopwatch.
We love to work with growth-minded entrepreneurs, innovators, and visionaries who have a thriving business (or suite of brands) and need regular legal support and strategy to enable that growth.
Talk to us when you’re getting started, raising capital, approaching an exit, trademarking your brand, hiring or firing an employee, negotiating contracts, licensing IP, or working out a tax strategy.
General Counsel as a Service isn’t the right fit if your business is on autopilot and you rarely pursue new opportunities. (We may be able to help on a project basis.) And we definitely aren’t a fit if you already have all the answers, aren’t open to coaching, and believe working harder not smarter is a moral virtue.
We’re excited for you!
And we offer customized plans and add-on services that match your legal needs with the right level of coverage.
Our Base plan starts at $5K/month and is great for most startups and mid-sized businesses.
We also offer a Plus plan and custom add-ons for more strategic planning, even faster turn times on requests, and additional project capacity that considers your unique goals and legal needs.
If our Base plan isn’t in your budget, let’s talk about how we can support you on a project basis.
