Approach to fees

Jason Wiener|p.c. strives to provide flexible and value-based pricing structures to clients. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand the unique needs of start-ups and social enterprises, which are often borne from personal passion and sometimes personal capital.

To help you budget for the cost of legal and business consulting services, we utilize the following tools and guidelines:

  • By utilizing a modest retainer at the outset, we are able to keep hourly rates affordable. Retainers help with cash flow, and with managing time efficiently. This translates into savings to you through competitive hourly rates and streamlined time management.
  • Jason Wiener|p.c. accepts check, ACH and credit card payments for both invoice balances and to fund retainers, providing flexibility and convenience for clients. Credit card payments can also be made through a secure online portal.
  • Flexibility is key. Some clients prefer to operate with evergreen (periodically replenished) retainers to reduce the hassle of monthly invoices. Others are managing their own cash flow, and prefer to transition from the initial retainer to monthly billing.
  • Fixed-fees can apply for certain types of work when possible. However, some projects work best under the age-old hourly rate structure. When work requires time-billing at our hourly rate, we work efficiently to offer superior value.

Jason Wiener|p.c. value-pricing is based on:

  • Maintaining lean operations and minimal overhead;
  • Variable hourly rates depending on the nature and complexity of the work;
  • Collaboration with clients. Some clients want to be deeply involved in the iterative process. This can facilitate decision-making and streamline the work. We are equally happy to work with clients who simply want to review and approve the finished product;
  • The firm works with legal professionals with varying levels of experience and who each bill at variable rates, depending on the work. We do our best to balance the need for experience and competence at the lowest cost.
  • Supervised law clerks perform some of the deep research that may not otherwise be supported by a client’s budget.
  • We do not charge for travel within 20-miles of Boulder, Colorado when meeting at client’s offices or premises;
  • Through strategic partnerships with other legal, finance and business specialists, we are able to offer the depth of service often found at much larger law firms;
  • We are comfortable with and offer technological solutions that enable video, conference and other virtual meeting formats.  On request, we may agree to record a call or video session so you can go back or share with your internal team.
  • We pay for private, clean and accessible meeting space only when needed, which means we can pass along the savings from not maintaining regular meeting space; and
  • We provide “virtual” general counsel services by maintaining expertise in the many areas of law and regulation that impact start-up and emerging growth businesses, cooperatives, social enterprise, and hybrid forms.

Jason Wiener|p.c.’s value extends beyond legal services, and includes counsel with respect to many other strategic and critical issues.
