Limited scope retainers offer the following advantages:

  • Save time – with less to do on your own, you will have more time to dedicate to other occupations;
  • Save money – hiring a lawyer to perform only the legal tasks you are not comfortable doing on your own will save you money on legal fees;
  • Remain in control – you control all other aspects of your matter save for the ones you retained a lawyer to complete.
