Quantity vs. Quality - the billable hour mousetrap


Billable hours have become a vicious task master hanging over lawyers’ heads, discouraging efficiency. Corporate clients, in particular, are choosing “pedigree” and "prestige" of their lawyers over “quality” in legal services and have only themselves to blame for the outrageous legal bills on their desks.

In this time of economic downturn, with companies failing right and left, only the strong and flexible companies will survive. Stop paying outrageous hourly rates and look for quality legal counsel that will provide cost-efficient and useful services. Your company's survival may depend on it.
