The traditional law firm model rewards inefficiency - the longer it takes the more they get paid. How does that work for the client?
Not at all.
How does it work on larger matters?
For larger matters we break the work down into stages to provide a more accurate description of the scope of work in each stage. Depending on the matter, the initial stages may be fixed fees with subsequent stages having an estimate of fees, which can be fixed as the matter progresses and when the scope can be better defined based on the conduct and direction of the matter.
Our fixed fees are for our professional fees and do not include disbursements, such as search costs, or court filing fees. These are disbursements we incur as your agent to enable us to complete your instructions and we invoice these to you for reimbursement. We do not put any mark up on these disbursements.
