Why Fractional is the Future

Hiring a part-time executive is nothing new to businesses with growth goals and constrained resources. LinkedIn is saturated with requests for fractional services because founders know that cost-effective talent is critical to the long-term success of a scaling business — and the same is true for legal expertise.

However, due to the high-cost law firm model, many executive teams treat their lawyers as luxuries for only critical matters.

Goodlawyer integrates legal talent into businesses to support their daily operations with Fractional Counsel. It's a sophisticated, flexible and cost-effective way to have a trusted legal partner in your business's operations, making it perfect for startups, scale-ups, and established companies looking for an efficient way to get legal support.

See how it's benefitted Helcim — a scaling Canadian fintech looking for a legal team to channel its culture and strategy.
