OUR FIRST COUNSEL: STOP ACCEPTING THE STATUS QUO.
For decades, the very companies that built their successes by not accepting the status quo became dependent on law firms whose business practices remained virtually unchanged.
That time is long gone. Which is why Butler Snow rises above the old ways of practicing law. We recruit, staff, and reward your team to give you efficient, expert solutions driven by your goals, not ours. Our offices don’t compete, they collaborate. Our fee structures help you increase your bottom line, not our billable hours.
We let go of law outdated, so you can experience Law Elevated. You’re constantly reaching for the next level. Our team is right there with you.
IF EDISON BILLED HOURLY, COULD WE AFFORD A LIGHTBULB?
It’s the kind of challenging question we ask ourselves every day. First, the truth: Edison didn’t invent the lightbulb. He saw its true potential and elevated it. He and his team worked tirelessly for one year to create a practical lightbulb that would last more than 1200 hours to make the benefits of electricity affordable to all. Which leads to this question: Had their mission been to expand their team to justify ever-expanding hourly rates, would they have solved the problem at all?
We believe creative and practical fee structures are long overdue in the practice of law. Which is why we retooled ours long ago. By doing away with attorney origination fees and other structures that put a firm’s interests ahead of its clients, we help you predict and budget legal costs more accurately. And, by rewarding collaboration and efficiency instead of competition and extra hours, our teams work more closely with you to achieve the best possible outcomes.
