Information for New Clients
IMPORTANT: A NOTE ON JURISDICTION
You understand that unless stated otherwise, our lawyers are only called to the Bar in British Columbia, Canada. If you are an international client from another country, you understand that the services we are providing you are based on general legal principles and not the specific laws of your jurisdiction. In some instances, we will use legal agreements prepared by lawyers in your jurisdiction (California, Oregon and Washington) but otherwise, you understand you are retaining our services and we are not called to the bar in your jurisdiction. Please let us know if you have any questions about this!
We can only take instruction to act on your behalf from you. So, if there is someone else who might need to execute instructions on your behalf, just let us know!
Legal fees and most disbursements are subject to either or all both of a Provincial Sales Tax, Harmonized Sales Tax, or Goods and Services Tax. We’ll let you know.
3.0 Confidentiality + Privilege
Being your lawyer means we have a duty to hold all information you share with us in strict confidence. So, spill the beans! No question is silly. We can only help you when we know everything.
Anytime we are working for you on your file, we will be billing you for it. This only pertains to substantive work, so if we are just chilling on the phone, obviously you won’t be charged but once the ‘lawyering’ begins, you will be. Timing is recorded in 6-minute increments. However, if we agree on a flat fee, then timekeeping won’t be a thing.
You rock, so let us brag to the world about how awesome we think you are. If you don’t want us to promote the love, just let us know and we will be happy to oblige.
6.0 You Firing Us
You cannot respect love that is not freely given, so feel free to fire us whenever you’d like. Just provide notice in writing and ensure all outstanding payments are made. All deposits and payments up until that time are non-refundable. We’ll invoice you for any costs incurred leading up to or after termination.
7.0 We Fire You
We can stop working for you as a client if you don’t pay your invoices, if you don’t co-operate in helping us help you, if you request we do something illegal or ethically compromising or if a conflict of interest arises.
8.0 Pay it Forward!
We’ll try to hook you up with awesome people who will further your business and goals. If you know people who need legal help and want to have fun working with a lawyer, please connect us. First coffee is on us!
Thank you for completing our client agreement form. We are so stoked to begin the fun of working together with you!
