How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Commodities/Futures Attorney?

Many clients wonder how expensive it will be and how these are charged when hiring an commodities/futures attorney. The answer often depends on the type of the project. For example, if your matter involves a contract review, usually, we can give you a budget and flat fee quote, once we are able to see the contract. In some cases, clients ask us to review agreements they have been presented with, or prepare an agreement they need to present another party with, and we can usually do so for a flat fee. We offer flat fees to make hiring a commodities/futures attorney more affordable. The typical fees for an commodities/futures attorney are hourly; however, in our experience, there are a variety of projects that can typically be budgeted and billed on a flat fee basis. We work with clients to make the hiring of an  commodities/futures attorney as affordable as possible.

When Should I Hire a Commodities/Futures Attorney?

One of the biggest mistakes many clients make  is not getting legal help soon enough.  Because commodities/futures law is relatively new, many clients are not fully aware of all of the state and federal regulatory landscape which serves as the backdrop to commodities/futures creation, exchange, purchase, and sale. Having a commodities/futures lawyer assist with these tasks can avoid the pitfalls that may result from lack of awareness of complex securities and laws governing nonfungible tokens and cryptocurrency transactions.  A commodities/futures attorney can help you accomplish these tasks.

How Long Will my Project Take to Complete? 

Generally, we fulfill client orders for services on projects within 1 to 2 days. Obviously, it will depend on the exact nature of what you need. We suggest that you start by contacting us to tell us more about your project, and during the consultation, we will let you know what the estimated time frame will be, once we have more information from you. Most clients have their orders for services fulfilled within 1 to 2 days. If it will take longer than this timeframe, we will let you know.

How to Request a Flat Fee Quote?

The best way to request a flat fee quote for your project is to email us with what you need and, if it involves reviewing an agreement, a copy of your agreement. We will usually respond within 24 hours and provide you with the flat fee quote. Or, you can use the attached link to our form to Request a Consultation. 

There is no charge for budgeting. If you would like to go forward with our firm after receiving the quote, then we would love to work with you.
