The following is a list of packaged services offered by the Digital Business Law Group (DBLG). What do we mean by packaged? It means that it is a "legal offering" with well defined roles, responsibilities and deliverables. In many cases it also means that we will quote a fixed fee, once we jointly have determined the scope of the offering. Where this applies each package will quote a price (or price range), a list of actions, and one or more deliverables. The fixed cost is determined via an upfront review by us (and an agreement by you) as to the exact scope. Certain organizations or individuals will require more or less of what is defined in the complete package depending on their respective needs. There is simply no engagement until we have a written agreement regarding how to proceed.
