Unbundled Legal Services describes legal services in which a lawyer or a law firm agrees with a client to provide some, but not all, of the legal work involved in a matter, with an understanding that the client is responsible for performing the services that the lawyer or law firm did not agree to provide. The lawyer and the client enter into a limited scope legal service retainer agreement. The limited scope of the legal work provided does not limit the quality of the legal work provided or the ethical standards upon which the lawyer or law firm operate.
Unbundled legal services allow a client to receive some legal advice and service at a reduced cost because the client is only paying for the legal service that client wants and no more. The costs of unbundled legal services are reduced further when offered over the Internet because this allows the lawyer and law firm to reduce expensive overhead of expensive physical buildings and offices by adopting high-tech solutions.Google+
