Pricing

The virtual research department can assist you with legal and technical research, and includes writing and editing services.

Each level builds on the other–if you don’t use all the services for your level in a month, the unused portion carries over to the next month.

We are happy to chat with you about which virtual research department pricing is right for your business.
