We say it time and time again: Here, law is done differently.
Time costing makes little to no sense – often, there is no connection whatever between the fees charged and the value of the work done. Quite frankly, it often rewards inefficiency and tempts lawyers to behave badly. From the client’s perspective, it is uncontrollable and does nothing more efficiently than generate unpleasant surprises.
Legal costs are a business risk like any other. Our business is management of that risk. We attempt give our clients certainty as to their legal spending and we approach the question of pricing with the client’s specific needs and constraints in mind.
We believe that our clients would like to pay us fairly for what we do and that a fair sharing of risk and reward is conducive to a strong long term relationship.
Finally, we love being lawyers and we want to enjoy our work, work with clients we enjoy, hang out with colleagues we like and go home each day with a sense of genuine satisfaction and reward.
