Hey, I’m Andrew Legrand, founder of the Spera Law Group and the author of this blog. Back in 2011, I started this site in an effort to demystify the day-to-day legalities of running a small business. If you’re self-employed and are looking for advice from a general counsel, you’re in the right place!
You’ve probably contacted attorneys before and were met with quotes for astronomical hourly rates or requests for $20,000 cash retainers. Unfortunately, that’s the norm in the legal community. That bug us (and even lawyers need lawyers!), and we started this firm with business owners in mind.

You’ve Found the New Norm
We’ve attempted to change that model by eliminating the hourly rate in favor of flat fees and the five-figure retainers. We’re your outsourced general counsel who can answer those day-to-day questions without running the clock. When matters become more complex, we bring in experienced attorneys who can address those specific issues (usually, at a fraction of the price of those big firms).
