Our network of top-quality lawyers specialize in exactly what you need. Unlike the typical law firm, we charge a fixed rate on our most requested services such as incorporations, shareholder agreements, service agreements, and more.
We've been proudly featured across the country — here's how our lawyers can help you on Goodlawyer.
Most lawyers charge by the hour, which means you’ll never know how much it will cost until it’s too late. Plus, you have to pay all fees upfront before any work begins. This can come as quite a shock when paying $5,000 for an incorporation that could have been done for just $500!
All of our lawyers must pass our vetting process before they can join our network. Once approved, they're publicly reviewed by clients and removed if their ratings fall too low. Our good lawyers are good people, and they're here to help.
There are more than 20,000 law firms in Canada. Finding the right lawyer for your situation is often a time consuming process, not to mention it's almost impossible to know if they're actually a good lawyer who cares about your problems.
Goodlawyer is proud to offer upfront fixed prices on exclusive microservices like Advice Sessions and Contract Reviews, as well as other common legal services. There are no retainer fees or billable hours — never pay a penny more than you agreed to.
Legal services in Canada are typically priced using the mysterious billable hour. They're rarely made public and for many law firms the final price of a service isn't calculated until after it's completed, leaving clients with a shocking and unclear bill.
Goodlawyer's fees are among the lowest in the country — nearly half of the traditional firm rates! How, you ask? Because we save lawyers hours of overhead in marketing and admin on each client, helping them provide legal services more efficiently. See our pricing page here.
Lawyers are professionals and their time is valuable, but marketing and admin account for up to 70% of a small firm or solo lawyer's time. They recover those sunk costs with expensive billable hours and pain-stakingly track their time to bill you in 6 minute increments.
Business law includes any and all laws that can affect business operations. This makes it a very broad field that is constantly evolving. Business lawyers must be familiar with standard business practices as well as business law.
Booking an Advice Session with a business lawyer can save your business from conflicts later on. It's a good choice to ensure you receive the legal counsel you need before making big decisions or entering contracts as it can protect you and your business. For example, a lawyer can review your standard contract to ensure it is legally binding and that you have all the protection you need if there is a problem in the future.
If you have questions about a contract you can have it reviewed by a lawyer. Contracts are often illegal, invalid, or unenforceable and shouldn't always be taken at face value.
Corporations can be modified at any time through a number of different mechanisms. This includes transfers of ownership, the appointment of new directors, and mergers and acquisitions of other companies.
Every lawyer has been interviewed and background checked. They must be licensed and receive consistently positive reviews to remain on the platform.
Good lawyers can provide most legal services. The cost of the initial advice session will be deducted from the cost of the larger service.
If you are unsatisfied with the legal advice you receive from your lawyer, Goodlawyer will give you your money back. Simply email [email protected] to request a refund.
You will be able to select the lawyer you want to work with. We partner with lawyers in every major Canadian city, but we can’t guarantee they will be available at all times.
Wasn't sure what to expect but was blown away by the value and quality of help I got through Goodlawyer for my small business! Will 100% be back.
Goodlawyer can get you the answers you need, without any financial risk. Booking is fast and easy and you won't be charged if you aren't satisfied.
