About The Firm
As an entrepreneur, you are bombarded with demands from people who wants answers: investors, key employees and regulatory bodies, for example. We know because we’ve been there. You need someone who answers to you. Here at the Van de Verg Law Office, we answer to you: the entrepreneur.
“We answer to you: the entrepreneur.”
At The Van de Verg Law Office, we aim to help you grow your business while reducing your stress level, by providing you with affordable, tailored and timely legal support. With over 20 years of in-house and outside counsel experience guiding start-ups and emerging companies alike tackle thorny issues which combine business, legal and technical aspects, we offer Baltimore-area technology companies solutions that address their unique needs. Together, we will protect your assets and construct actionable plans to steer your business to continued success.
We understand that when you're starting a business, you need to save as much money as possible. The Van de Verg Law Office believes in providing the legal advice you need, when you need it, at a price you can afford. Our process begins with a free initial consultation that pinpoints your specific legal needs, issues, and opportunities. From here, our team constructs a custom plan that will give you all the necessary services to maximize your legal spend. Our flexible fee arrangements include:
Flat-Fee Package: With this approach, we agree on a one-time flat fee that covers a package of related services. For example, a start-up package might include home-state LLC formation, foreign entity registration in additional states, multi-member operating agreement, contracts for key employees, customer service contract, trademark registrations and a trade secret protection program.
Outsourced General Counsel: This approach is best-suited for emerging companies with a growing backlog of recurring contractual, compliance and/or corporate housekeeping requirements, which require legal analysis, drafting or supervision. For a fraction of the cost of a full-time in-house lawyer, we can pinpoint and plan for those tasks which require legal expertise. A monthly GC suite of services might include regulatory compliance reporting, organizing corporate annual meetings and updating corporate policies governing cybersecurity best practices, employees and intellectual property protection.
Traditional Per-Hour Billing: With a wealth of real-world executive experience, minimal overhead and no expensive firm superstructure to feed, we are able to offer top-notch business legal services at competitive per-hour rates.
The Van de Verg Law Office is your advocate – we want you to succeed because your success is our success. To do this, we work with you to address and conquer any legal concerns while earning your trust in the process. Our goals are to give you the peace of mind and tools you need to run your business effectively. We will help you start, maintain, and grow your business in a legal and fulfilling way.
