Clients appropriately consider a variety of criteria when selecting attorneys to assist in litigation matters. BBL recognizes that clients have the ability to select from many firms, including large and small firms. BBL offers clients the best of both worlds:
The size, services and benefits of a small firm:
- Individual attention, responsiveness, and flexibility;
- High-quality, cost-effective legal and administrative services that are defined by the client’s needs, not ours;
- Enthusiastic staff who know that the client’s business is important; and,
The resources of a large firm:
- Trial lawyers experienced in a variety of specialty areas;
- Focused technology, staff, and resources;
- Case handling, trial, and lead counsel experience throughout the United States; and,
- Nationwide relationships with experts, other attorneys and law firms.
BBL provides its clients with a long-term commitment and personal service, whether they face litigation or claim, business opportunity or challenge. BBL’s size, experience, and methods of practice combine to provide the more sophisticated legal services expected from a big law firm. However, BBL offers that level at a value and with a flexibility that larger firms are often unable to provide.
With regard to rates and charges, BBL believes in dealing with the subject up front. While a majority of files are handled on the traditional hourly basis, even there BBL offers something different. BBL’s rate structure is provided to you at the start of an assignment. BBL’s bills will be timely, accurate and detailed, but will not contain the clutter that you may have come to expect from attorneys. BBL does not bill for routine long distance charges, fax charges, routine computer research charges, or routine copying charges. BBL treats those as a cost of doing business. Make no mistake, BBL seeks to be fairly compensated for the work done on the client’s behalf. However, BBL commits that the client will understand what work has been performed and what has been charged for that work. BBL’s bills will not contain hidden charges. BBL welcomes scrutiny of those bills to determine whether clients have received value from our efforts.
BBL will also consider in appropriate circumstances other fee arrangements such as contingent fee arrangements, fixed fee arrangements, or combinations.
