FAQ

What is a Virtual Legal Counsel and why do you need it?

A Virtual Legal Counsel is a service from Legal Nodes whereby a lawyer is (or team of lawyers are) assigned to your business. Virtual Legal Counsels are extremely useful for providing necessary support and advice on legal matters. All our counsels consist of professional, qualified legal experts who specialise in the area of law that you are seeking help with.

How are the lawyers for my Virtual Legal Counsel selected?

The lawyers who make up your counsel are selected by a manager from Legal Nodes. Our managers assess the size, industry, market, culture, and budget constraints of your business and choose the best counsel to run commercial and/or corporate contract works for your company. All legal counsels in our network go through a complex screening process. We check their license, soft skills, and experience of working with IT companies and startups. Legal counsels have to also follow the Legal Nodes standards among which is a fast turnaround time and following workflows developed by Legal Nodes.

How does the subscription service work?

The Legal Nodes model allows you to start a new subscription that best meets the needs of your business and get the legal support you need. You are also able to stop the subscription at any time and/or get matched with a different legal counsel should you wish to work with a different lawyer. This saves time not only on the legal tasks but also on finding, hiring, and briefing a lawyer every time you have a new legal question.

How does Legal Nodes differ from a traditional law firm?

Legal Nodes is a tech-enabled platform that helps businesses solve their legal tasks remotely. As opposed to traditional law firms, Legal Nodes is a platform productizing legal services. This means that you always get a fixed price for a set of tasks. Everything is stored securely online and managed in the cloud to make the experience seamless and simple for you and without additional overheads like administration and office costs.

Who is responsible for the quality of service provided?

Legal Nodes ensures top quality of service provided by screening the lawyers and training them on how to follow Legal Nodes workflows so that clients can always get the best service. All of our processes work to ensure that no quality issues arise. On the rare occasion that they do, you as a client have the option of requesting a counsel rematch. All legal counsels are licensed or certified professionals. This means that they are under obligation to adhere to strict codes of conduct. Their violation might result in the revocation of a licence/certification.

Can I trust Legal Nodes with my confidential information?

You sign the Agreement and NDA with Legal Nodes and legal counsel. This guarantees that the rules of client-lawyer privilege are being adhered to. Also, in most of the jurisdictions client-lawyer privilege is implied by the law. This ensures that all the confidential information is kept private and secure.

What if I have a question outside the scope of subscription?

If you don’t require a subscription, Legal Nodes can still help. We offer one-time packages of the most popular services requested by tech companies such as company registration, trademark registration, tax advice and more. Tasks that are not part of subscription will be highlighted in your personal dashboard. Simply contact us to enquire about these service options.
