During the operation of Representative Office or Foreign Invested Company in Vietnam, SB Law can supply Legal Retainer Services.
All Services will be rendered by SB Law as a legal division of the Company in Vietnam.
Notwithstanding this, in no case shall the Services Performance rendered by SB Law create an employer-employee relationship between the Consultant or Lawyer entrusted by SB Law (hereinafter referred to as “Consultant”) and the Company.
The Consultant shall have no right to receive any employee benefits including, but not limited to, health and accident insurance, life insurance, sick leave and/or vacation.
Specific hours to be worked by SB Law’s Consultant shall be determined by SB Law. The Company will rely on SB Law to work as many hours as may be reasonably necessary to fulfill SB Law’s Obligations under the request of the Company.
Time for which charges apply includes but is not limited to telephone calls, correspondence, emails, meetings, legal analysis and research, review and drafting of documents, depositions, conferences and travel. Occasional calls of only a few minutes in duration are not typically billed to the Company.
However, the time of both parties must be respected, and calls lasting over 10 minutes will be billed to the Company. All meetings must be prescheduled. Cancellation requires a minimum of 15 hours advance notice. Missed meetings or cancellations without sufficient notice will be billed to Company. However, Company shall indemnify compensation that SB Law has to pay for cancellation of flights booked for the meeting.
Due to the virtual nature of the relationship, Company should understand that SB Law is a business with other clients to serve, and requires fair, realistic notice in order to attend to requests and projects.
Poor planning or miscommunications on the part of Company will not constitute an emergency for Service. SB Law may require detailed clarification of projects in order to meet expectations and provide the best support and highest quality work.
