Open For Business

Whether you're a business owner or team leader, running a business is both exciting and rewarding. But, it can also be stressful. You have people who depend on you to deliver on day-to-day tasks while also guarding against an uncertain future. One of the most frequent (and important) concerns that pops up in your mind is likely how much everything the business needs is going to cost when all's said and done. You know even the smallest expenses can add up overtime, so you gather all the data you can to make strategic decisions about how to invest every dollar. That's not just a great practice, it's an economic necessity.

 

Unfortunately, common law firm practices ignore this necessity, with many lawyers still adding up their "billable time" haphazardly only to send the client occasional surprise invoices. This approach just adds stress to an already costly engagement.

So why do many lawyers work this way? While some do it with a "that's how we've always done it" mentality, most probably just want to limit their risks. Lawyers are notoriously risk averse, so the idea of committing to a price without a guarantee of how much time it will take them is very uncomfortable. Being in the habit of selling their time, they don't want to feel like they are giving anything away for free when overruns happen.

CoreServe Legal takes a different approach. Instead of thinking of services as "selling time," the firm looks at it from the client's perspective. This means CoreServe Legal takes a value-based approach to pricing its services, looking at a deliverable's usefulness (not how long it took to create and work through).  The firm believes that's simply a better way of working with clients.

To be sure, setting fixed fees for legal services isn't easy. It demands a lot experience with specific project types to evaluate a given project in advance and confidentially guarantee a price upfront. It also requires some creativity to deal with the diversity of possible projects. And no matter how good the predictive model is, some projects are going to have unforeseen wrinkles that throw everything off. But, that's a risk CoreServe Legal is willing to take for its clients to make the engagement a little easier and take a major concern off of the client's plate.

With those ideas in mind, CoreServe Legal put together detailed service specs and created novel pricing structures to offer its upfront fixed-fee guarantee for a variety of projects. Reach out today to learn more about how fixed fees can help your business optimize legal investments on a budget!
