Small Business Legal Essentials
A low monthly fee gets you a ton of legal services you can use for
common issues your business faces every day.

Included Letters or Phone Calls
A provider lawyer can provide further help with business legal matters by sending letters or making phone calls on behalf of your business for in-Province/in-Territory business legal matters, each on a unique business matter, with 1 follow-up communication if a response is received from a third party. Receive any combination of 10 letters or phone calls annually on separate business legal matters (limit of 3 per month). Additional communications may be obtained for a flat fee of $75 each. Collection Letters and Designated Consultations are not covered under this benefit.
