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 in-house and remotely. And our fees will remain the same for either type of engagement. Working with our Happiness Team, we can determine together what the best solution would be for you.
We have experienced lawyers from all aspects of the business and legal world. All of the 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 have removed the pressures like billable hour targets or working with singular clients so that our lawyers can deliver 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 with the same skill set as the bigger firms, 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!
We embrace technology from the beginning of our relationship with you, right through to the end! We have found incredibly efficient sources of technology that help with 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.
The level of support you require will determine how much time a Caravel lawyer will work directly with you. You can determine how much or as little time you require, and our lawyers are trained to balance their workload which will always ensure client satisfaction. We ensure that there are never conflicts of interest, and rest assured that our legal team has the highest professional standards and ethics. At no time will you ever feel that you are not a priority – that is a Caravel promise.
From an overarching perspective, we stand alone in terms of how we run our business and serve our clients. Our clients are diverse, their needs broad-ranging, and we have solutions that deliver to each high standard. We are not a traditional law firm and we do not practice in a traditional manner. For us, clients come first and we have figured out a way to serve them ALL in a new and effective approach. Still not convinced? Check out “OUR APPROACH” and you will see what we mean!
