Having a lawyer "on retainer" means that the client pays a lawyer a fixed monthly fee on a regular basis.  In return, the lawyer provides legal advice and services (such as answering a client's questions on legal matters, giving advice on potential legal issues or reviewing and commenting on business contracts) within a previously agreed upon scope - avoiding  the delay associated with engagement arrangements and payment of a large retainer or surprise of short interval billing and typically higher hourly fees (as long as the services are within the previously agreed scope).

Endeavor Law provides "on-retainer" or fixed monthly fee billing arrangements to act as outsourced "in-house"  counsel in order to smooth out the peaks and troughs of ongoing general business counsel. These retainer arrangements tend to provide the highest degree of transparency and predictability possible for business owners or management who tend to have regular or on-going need (such as publicly-traded issuers or start-ups) for business legal advice or services on a timely basis. 

With a fixed monthly fee billing fee arrangement, Endeavor Law can stay connected with a client in order to get to know a client's business and its legal needs and challenges and better protect the interests of a client's business to help it to grow and mature.
