“Having a fixed monthly fee has evolved in our brain over time – it just makes sense. With Source, we essentially have an in-house legal team, and this has proven to be very powerful, particularly with urgent deadlines. For us, the biggest win with Source is the flexibility and the expedience of their speedy turnaround for advice and contract reviews.”
