Consultancy

Mills & Clarke delivers legal consultancy relating to ICT and intellectual property.

These services are typically charged at an hourly rate agreed upon with the client, reflecting the extent and difficulty of the assignment as well as the size of your company.

For limited and well-defined assignments we also offer the option of a fixed fee. That way you can avoid unpleasant financial surprises.

If you would require more structural legal support there is also the option of a subscription. That way you are entitled to a certain amount of hours per week at a reduced rate. When preferred we will be physically present at your company during these hours. These subscriptions are very flexible and can be terminated or altered on a monthly basis.
