Hiring freezes may prevent you taking on new employees. mvp* gives you the resources your agency needs at a fraction of the cost that traditional law firms charge. mvp* takes care of the whole engagement process for you. You get high quality legal staff that have been pre-screened. They are available when and where you need them. Maximum flexibility, more output, less cost.
mvp* can often provide a cheaper alternative, especially if you factor in superannuation, overheads, recruiter fees and all employment costs. How do we do it? We strip out many of the costs faced by traditional law firm and pass the savings on to you.
Clients usually choose fixed-price daily, weekly or monthly rates to give budget certainty. But, we can suggest other pricing models if you’d prefer. Our rates are a fraction of what the big law firms charge. You can cap fees if you want.
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to get the legal assistance you need. You have flexibility. If things change, we can re-scope to meet your changed circumstances.
