With thanks to Robert Ambrogi for the heads up, I wanted to suggest you take a look at the web site of Exemplar Law Partners. The first page of the web site states an unequivocal position on hourly billing. “No hourly bill. No hourly bull. Exemplar is the first corporate law firm in the nation to exclusively adopt a fixed price model designed to align our interest with our customers while enabling businesses to better manage their legal budgets.”
I don’t know these folks (and I can’t find out who they are on their web site), but I hope they make millions. I applaud them for a forward-thinking approach to client relations and wish them well. If they succeed, others will follow.
