As a boutique firm, we are able to deliver high-level legal services to our clients on a more cost-effective and responsive basis than large firms of with attorneys of similar caliber. Unlike many firms that staff matters with multiple associates, we staff most matters with one partner with substantial “big-firm” and/or in-house experience. The partner will bring in other specialized and experienced attorneys when required. As a result, our clients receive the individualized attention that they expect at a reasonable price.
Depending on the engagement and the client’s wishes, we structure engagements based on traditional hourly billing, monthly retainers, flat fees, or a blend of these. With respect to transactional and most litigation matters, we have found that hourly billing continues to be the most transparent approach for our clients, but many of our clients prefer project billing, and we are happy to accommodate.
In the end, we believe that what matters more than hourly rates or the billing approach taken for a given engagement is the final number presented to the client. We work hard to ensure that the final tally for our work is commensurate with the value delivered and measures up favorably to the fees charges by other firms. Simply put, we want our clients to be happy.
