HALIFAX, NS October 4, 2017 – McInnes Cooper is making legal services more accessible for innovation driven start-ups in Atlantic Canada – enterprises with “new to the world” ideas, goods or services.
Helping start-ups transform, McInnes Cooper has recently launched its Start-up and Retainer Packages.
“We’ve had positive feedback on the ‘Transformation’ theme,” said Rob Cowan, partner at McInnes Cooper. “It enables us to say that we’ve been listening to start-ups, and now we’re changing the way we do things – very much a ‘start-up mindset’ for a law firm.”
“The new blue colour and tagline ‘Transforming with you’ shows our start-up services as new and distinct from the ‘old’ McInnes Cooper offering.”
The MC Start-up Package provides everything to get a business off the ground, from incorporation to one-on-one legal advice, in a way that fits a limited budget.
“We’ve completely transformed the way we price for start-ups,” said Sandra Goodwin, the firm’s Managing Director of Client Development and Service.
To get started, owners pay a modest up-front fee of $400, paying the balance of $4,600 only after the business is funded.
A second offering, the MC Retainer Package is designed for existing businesses in the start-up sector who have day-to-day legal needs and are looking for increased fee certainty. Businesses pay a set monthly fee based solely on the level of service required. For smaller enterprises, retainer fees can be as low as $200 a month.
A McInnes Cooper lawyer will arrange quarterly check in calls to ensure that clients are getting the right level of legal services and to help address issues early on. As business needs change, the MC Retainer Package offers the flexibility to revisit and adjust monthly fees as required.
Early adopters of the packages span the Atlantic Region.
Said Hugh Wright, CEO and Managing Partner of McInnes Cooper, “By supporting start-ups during the early stages, we hope to facilitate innovation and entrepreneurship throughout Atlantic Canada.”
