Sajen Legal’s sole purpose is to protect small to medium-sized businesses.   As a business owner, you need a lawyer that puts your business first. A firm that works with its clients, not on them. Sajen legal is not only there to support you as your business grows and expands, but when things get rough, we have your back.

Are you interested in fixed-fee legal services?

If you've visited a solicitor, you will know that they charge by the hour, or, to be more specific, the six-minute unit.

You will also be aware that, under this kind of arrangement, your legal bill can become very large, very quickly. So, if you’re a business owner who has retained a lawyer only to discover that their legal bill has become more of a problem than the issue that caused you to visit them in the first place, you aren't alone.

The cost of legal services has caused many small and medium-sized business owners to avoid visiting a lawyer, because they've found the exorbitant fees far outweigh any benefits.

The lawyers at Sajen Legal have been providing business law and litigation advice for over 25 years, and we've seen the damage that can be caused when businesses manage their legal issues without the assistance of a solicitor.

We decided that there had to be a better way to do things.

So, we've worked out a simple method of ensuring that legal services are affordable for small and medium-sized business.

What is Sajen's solution? Offering you fixed fees for all our legal services.

We call it the Sajen Accord.

What is the Sajen Accord?

The Sajen Accord is an agreement between you (the client) and us (the law firm).

We provide three options:

  • 1

    Fixed fees for a particular transaction/deal or any other piece of legal work

    You retain us to work on a particular transaction/deal or any other piece of legal work for a fixed fee.

  • 2

    Fixed fees for a particular litigation matter

    You can retain us to work on your legal dispute or litigation matter for a fixed fee.

  • 3


    We will charge you a fixed periodic fee, which you pay weekly, monthly or quarterly (whatever suits your cash flow) on the basis of either a:

  • General retainer (which includes all your commercial legal work, including any litigation matters)
  • Specific retainer (which covers particular aspects of your commercial legal work).

At the end of each year, we sit down and discuss the scope of the work for the following year and work out an appropriate fee for our services.

Under both the general or specific retainer, you can throw as much work as you like at us (as long as it falls under the scope of your retainer).

What does the Sajen Accord mean?

Under both our fixed-fee and retainer options, we guarantee you will never be billed per phone call, email or meeting. In short, it is a bit like having an in-house lawyer at your disposal.

Great idea, isn't it?

What are the benefits of the Sajen Accord for your business?

The Sajen Accord has a number of benefits for your business:

It saves you money and makes your legal costs predictable

The Sajen Accord provides an affordable way to receive legal advice.

Even more importantly, your legal fees are predictable, because we tell you exactly what they will be for the next year.

It gives you security

With Sajen, you won’t end up trapped in a legal nightmare because you are too scared, due to the potential cost, to call a lawyer to discuss your problem.

Instead, we work with you not only to protect your business but help it grow, by providing the legal support you need all day, every day.

You will receive commercially astute legal advice that is tailor made for your business

At Sajen legal, we provide advice targeted to your particular commercial situation, because we can take the time to understand your business, without everyone feeling like they have to watch the clock. This means that our legal advice takes into account your business objectives, as well as the commercial realities under which you operate.

You will receive high-quality legal advice

We believe that the Sajen Accord means you will receive high-quality legal advice, because we have time to analyse your matter or transaction, without worrying about how much the time we spend working for you will cost you.

It gives you peace of mind

With the Sajen Accord, you have peace of mind. You know your legal issues are in the hands of a capable professional, so you have time to focus on what you do best – grow your business.

You will become part of the Sajen family

Our clients say that they don’t see us as their lawyers. Rather, they see us as family.

Our Sunshine Coast office doesn’t look anything like a typical lawyers’ office.


Because, when you come to see us, we want you to feel like you and your business are part of our family – the Sajen family.

Lindy Atkin - Director Bark Design Architects
We have been using Sajen Legal for over 6 years for all our legal and company law requirements and have been
totally satisfied with their advice to our various companies. In 2011 we became members of Sajen Accord. This
is a great concept, for a set monthly fee all of our legal requirements are covered. If you are serious about having a
legal firm that truly understands your company's needs, you need to have Sajen as your law firm.

Jon Ruckman, Managing Director - Minpro Mining & Engineering
After utilising the services of various law firms and receiving little work for extremely high and costly fees, I was
reluctant to call solicitors and ask for legal advice. It was an extreme relief to find a law firm that understood its
clients; needs and were willing to work harder to meet them. I firmly believe that the Sajen Accord retainer has
saved my business thousands of dollars in legal fees and has provided me with a newfound security
and confidence during the daily operations of business.

Hayley Skinner, National Manager - The SunKISSED Girls
I am often asked: who looks after your legal requirements; contracts being a regular occurrence in publishing
and media. I am reluctant to give up this information, not wanting my opposition to have the same quality of
legal advice that I have come to respect and expect from the Sajen team. Sajen Accord gives my business a
real advantage over the competition. It almost seems unfair.
