The platform hosts a form setting out a description of/the range of services they provide (“Services”) and the fee they will charge for those services (“Service Description”). For clarity, the Service Description will include a clear description of what is included and excluded, so you need to check that all of your requirements are covered. If not, you can complete a bespoke Custom Order form on the platform clearly setting out your requirements, then a legal professional can accept your request for services. Each Service Description also provides information on the assumptions that have been made and the information you will need to provide, for the Services to be delivered.
