Issue Bad Legal Advisor Weisser Pardo AG
Pricing You might be blindsided by unexpected charges after services begin, without any upfront clarity or free consultation. You will be fully informed prior to the commencement of any billable activities. We offer a complimentary initial consultation lasting one hour for each project. Our billing practices adhere to an hourly rate, standard in the legal industry.
Confidentiality Your sensitive information could be mishandled or inadequately protected, leading to potential data breaches. Any information shared with us is safeguarded by Swiss attorney-client privilege. We use secure, open-source IT infrastructure to protect your data and avoid GAFAM technology wherever possible.
Professionalism Your projects may suffer from disorganization, missed deadlines, and a lack of structured management. Although we are a law firm, we provide our services like an IT provider. Large-scale drafting or research projects are managed akin to software development projects, including proposals, milestones, and deadlines. Review processes are scheduled systematically and well in advance. We pride ourselves on never missing a deadline.
Transparency You could be left in the dark about your project’s status, only receiving sporadic updates without clear communication. You will be continuously and regularly informed about the progress of your project, tailored to your preferences. By default, we inform you after the completion of each deliverable listing achieved results.
Genuine Interest in IT Your legal advisor might lack a thorough understanding of your technology, leading to subpar and uninformed legal services. We ensure that no material concerning your software or business is drafted until we have a complete and thorough understanding of all pertinent technological details. Our process is expedited by our extensive experience in providing legal counsel to businesses in the IT-industry and by efficient use of the most advanced and secure technologies. We use artificial intelligence diligently to protect your data, greatly increase our productivity, and lower costs.
Simplicity You might receive overly complex legal documents without clear guidance, causing confusion and hindering effective use. Our deliverables are designed to be straightforward and easily actionable, crafted in language accessible to non-experts. When dealing with multiple documents, we provide summaries that delineate the relationships between each text and facilitate orientation (like inline comments) as well as guides on how to proceed with the use of the text in legal procedures or in contractual negotiations. Clients can expect seamless communication in their preferred language, whether it be German, Spanish, English, or French. By the conclusion of our engagement, all parties involved will have a thorough understanding of the purpose and content of all provided materials.
Harmony Your lawyer might escalate conflicts unnecessarily, preferring litigation over peaceful resolution, potentially harming business relationships. We believe litigation is the result of failed communication and can often be prevented through diligent contract negotiation and early legal awareness. However, we do not hesitate to directly employ the most efficient methods to safeguard your interests.
