We strive to get deals done and navigate legal risk to a good result for clients. We believe that creative problem solving and viewing legal issues as challenges to overcome produces results for clients. The law is not the most important thing. Achieving results for the clients is what matters most.
In October 2004, we left traditional big law firms to test a new business model, as one of the first virtual law firms in the country. We set out to achieve the goals of achieving better results for clients and value for the cost, and to provide lawyers with a better business model. With overhead reduced to what we need to do our work, we are able to offer clients significantly lower billable rates, and alternative fee arrangements, including fixed and deferred fees, to fit the circumstances. This model has proven successful and sustainable, as working remotely has risen, technology supporting the remote worker has dramatically improved, and the market has grown to accept the remote office as a legitimate and professional manner of working.
