Whether your business is a new start-up company or a firm that’s been around for years, if you have signed up for a business formation or outside general counsel legal service plan with Executive Legal Professionals, here are five ways you can get the most from your legal service plan.

COMMUNICATE

One of the best things about a legal service subscription plan from Executive Legal Professionals is Unlimited Legal Consultation Service. We include this with each and every legal service subscription plan. When was the last time you picked up the phone and called your lawyer? Including your lawyer in a weekly call or meeting is a great way to get preventive legal insights, which will provide ongoing legal protection to your business as you plan and develop your day-to-day operations.

EVALUATE

Your lawyer thrives on feedback. We can’t improve our service if we don’t know what our clients think of it. Let us know what we’re doing well by reviewing our firm on the Better Business Bureau website; or send us an email to let us know how we can improve our services.

PERIODICALLY REVIEW

It’s a good idea to look over your legal service plan (usually Addendum B in your Contract for Legal Services). Our contracts always comprehensively describe your legal service plan, letting you know exactly what services are included in consideration of your regular subscription fee. Make sure you know what’s included in your plan, and plan your usage accordingly.

SCHEDULE TRAINING

Many, if not most, of our legal service plans include some kind of risk-management training or business-legal education service. It is your responsibility to schedule these training or education sessions with your attorney. Your attorney will respect your time and your schedule by waiting to hear from you about when you would like to set-up these events. So, reach out to your attorney, and talk to him about when to come provide these valuable included services.

ENGAGE

Attending events, like the Nashville Preventive Law Luncheon, connecting with us on social media, reading and sharing our newsletter, and being generally involved with what is going on with the firm is a great way to maintain an open line of communciation with our attorneys. While we always make an effort to treat every client with the respect and attention they deserve, like any business, we find it easiest to connect to the people who are actively trying to connect with us. So, if you want more of our attention, engage with us. We try to make it easy and pleasant to plug into what’s going on with the firm. All you need to do is engage.
