Frequently Asked Questions
Caravel Law is a leader in legal innovation across Canada. Through a vigilantly maintained, low overhead cost structure, we are able to provide you with quality legal advice, at pricing that is significantly lower than traditional law firms. With both traditional law firm experience, as well as significant practical in-house experience across all industry sectors, our team of business-savvy lawyers are ready to deliver for all clients. We focus on happy clients and happy lawyers.
Many traditional firms have multiple layers of staff, which leads to a higher billing structure for clients. Caravel only hires experienced lawyers and we charge an hourly, daily or monthly rate, which is typically 50-75% less than other firms. No surprises! The quality of both the work and the expertise can outpace the market, while the billing is reflective of our unique and innovative structure. Whether you need support directly in house as counsel, in a fractional capacity, or just for a singular project, our team is skilled and ready to support you.
Our team is flexible to the needs of the client. We have lawyers across the country and with extensive experience working both onsite and remotely. Our fees will remain the same for either type of engagement. Our Happiness Team is here to help determine together what the best solution would be for you.
We have experienced lawyers from all aspects of the business and legal world. All lawyers that work with Caravel have come on board because they respect and appreciate the fresh approach that we deliver. Each lawyer is familiar with the more traditional model of a law firm, or with the intricacies of being in-house counsel, and is committed to delivering those same levels of legal counsel, but in our unique and forward-thinking manner. We remove the pressures of billable hour targets and other traditional firm tactics so that our lawyers can focus on delivering exceptional services that don’t sacrifice client satisfaction. All of our lawyers are listed on this site – check out their bios here!
Lawyers who are “Of Counsel” practice through their own professional corporation in association, and not in partnership, with Caravel Law Professional Corporation.
Here is where you will notice the biggest difference. While we have lawyers and other corporate supports with the same skill set as the bigger firms and equal, if not more, dedication to implementing innovative legal tech, we have eliminated many of the standard overhead costs that creep into your bill. We charge a flat hourly, daily or monthly rate. Simple as that! Our Happiness Team has extensive knowledge of what types of projects and services are required by both small and large organizations. We work with you on your overall requirements and help deliver a solution that is best for you and your legal needs. Whether you are a single entity, a start-up or an established, scaled company, we can help!
Legal tech is a rich and innovative industry. Our head of Legal Innovation, Monica Goyal, scouts new legal systems and software to help you from the beginning of our relationship, right through to the end! We have found incredibly efficient sources of technology that improve client onboarding, secure communications, project management and much more, all in an effort to deliver effective legal support for our clients. We are NOT an old school firm that hasn’t moved into the next generation – we are leading it.
We would be happy to discuss what this would look like. Please reach out to our Client Happiness Specialist to learn more. Let’s talk!
The level of support you require will determine how much time a Caravel lawyer will work directly with you.

Our legal team maintains the highest professional and ethical standards and proactively works to prevent any conflicts of interest. At no time will you ever feel that you are not a priority – that is a Caravel promise.
