1.Our Retainer Agreement

Retainer agreement is for the clients who seek our attorney to consult their legal matters as we are retained to them to prevent legal issues in advance and give professional advice for efficient and stable corporate management of the company and for other legal concerns. For litigation cases, our client’s needs to retain us separately from the retainer agreement as needed. In this case, if the client has retainer agreement, we offer discount for the litigation legal service fee.

Not only for each legal consultation, our retainer agreement may be used for business management strategy, business planning, risk management and other business matters as well.

The period of our retainer agreement is one (1) year. The clients can change the plan at the time of renewal.
