When a client needs to speak with Michael, they can speak with Michael, and he can readily implement a different course of action that suits the client’s best interests. Because there’s no significant staffing hierarchy established to a particular matter, other attorneys do not need to be consulted in order to implement a change in the representation, etc. You want it, you got it – today.
In contrast, thanks to using the latest technology, we are nimble, efficient, and mobile. It means we can spend time and energy on your case rather than troubleshooting the daily hardware and software problems the big firms face.
We utilize the best technology to enhance our practice and benefit our clients. We are not confined to our office, chained to a desktop computer, or burdened with IT maintenance. Thanks to the smart use of technology we can focus on providing our clients with the best representation possible. By streamlining our practice we can focus on what our clients hire us to do – advocate on their behalf and work diligently toward a desired result.
Lower overhead not only helps our bottom line, it translates directly into lower overall expenses for our clients.
When you pay by the hour, you want to be positive that you’re not paying for wasted time or redundant tasks. Big firms tend to shuffle your documents around, requiring several lawyers to review and approve them, not to mention that everything might have to be cleared with a senior partner, who may be extremely busy and hard to reach. All of that shuffling results in increased costs and expenses for you and your business.
Small firms prize efficiency. Your interests are our priority and we never try to “nickel and dime” you by adding useless steps. Our main concern is your success and your time. We understand that wasted time is your wasted money, so we work to conclude projects quickly and effectively.
With the large firms you’re buying a brand name. With our firm you’re buying so much more.
We offer unusually high quality legal services to clients with specialized and unique needs. And we serve our clients’ needs in an individualized fashion.
What distinguishes us from the large firms is that we are offering a differentiated product. We provide the pragmatic, cost-conscious advice of career inside counsel. Our practice is limited to the areas in which our knowledge and experience speak for themselves. And we keep our costs low and share these cost savings with our clients.
The advantages of hiring our firm are superior value, greater access to the attorney handling your case, and higher priority among the firm’s clients.
We have a great deal of experience in the securities industry and the FINRA forum. This means that we are already familiar with the issues that frequently arise in complex securities matters and we are able to apply broad and deep industry knowledge to resolve even the most contentious securities disputes.
A smaller boutique firm like ours with significantly less overhead can afford to work on smaller matters that big firms can’t afford to work on. That lets clients test-drive us on a smaller matter. Clients can hire us to handle a smaller dispute where there may not be millions of dollars at stake. They can see how we do, get to know us and how we work, and may become more comfortable hiring us for the bigger case down the road. With a bigger firm, you don’t have the opportunity to test-drive the lawyers like that because they only want the million dollar cases.
While a long roster of diverse legal services may look impressive on paper, it’s fairly pointless in practice. You need one good attorney who knows the ins and outs of the area of law that’s relevant to your case. Our clients understand that the lawyer’s skills are far more important than the length of the firm’s office hallways.
Though the “team” of lawyers at a large firm may be used as a selling point, it’s actually a drawback. When multiple people are involved in a case, there can be breakdowns of communication which lead to misunderstandings, needless errors and lost time. And that is an expensive disservice to you and your case.
With a boutique firm you always know who you’ll be talking to, and it will always be one attorney with a thorough knowledge and understanding of your situation. This personal relationship and attention builds trust, creates synergy, and results in a better outcome for your case. We work to achieve better results through collaboration with your dedicated attorney.
