Our attorneys respect the complexity of the roles of General Counsel and C-Suite Executives, the pace of your business, and the decisions and challenges your legal team faces. We aim to be responsive to your needs and mindful of your business goals and budgetary priorities. As stewards of your resources, we know you would expect nothing less. Our attorneys view their role as helping each individual client team member succeed.
- Integrative Client Platforms: Open and transparent communication through the use of technology allows us to more efficiently work with our clients. We realize our clients’ time is valuable and, therefore, we utilize technology that promotes practicality and clarity. In addition to secure cloud-based file sharing or client extranets where clients can easily share, view, print, upload and modify files, we can offer clients with multiple intra-disciplinary and complex matters a customized Interactive Client Portal designed to provide full transparency.
- Value-Based Fee Strategies: Recently ranked by BTI Consulting in the top 5 percent of law firms in client service (BTI Client Service A-Team 2015), Polsinelli’s business model of concentration in lower overhead markets allows us to offer our clients an outstanding level of service with a highly competitive rate structure, and also enables us to work with each client to select a value-based pricing approach that best aligns to the client’s business priorities. Polsinelli recognizes and appreciates the importance of providing predictable legal services spend, and routinely offers several fee options designed with our clients in mind, including traditional hourly billing paid monthly, flat fee arrangements, comprehensive flat (capped) fee arrangements, retainer agreements and others.
Unique, tailored fee arrangements are key tools in creating an arrangement that has the greatest relevance to our clients. Whether our clients desire the ability to control or predict billing expenses, establish transparency, share financial risk or create anything other than “traditional monthly billing at standard rates”, Polsinelli partners with our clients to find the most creative pricing options and tools to create a successful solution for both parties. We continue develop new tools and resources as we strive to deliver innovative and cost-effective legal service.
- Legal Project Management: Pressure from boardrooms, shareholders and management to reduce costs, provide and demonstrate value, as well as understanding risks have placed new requirements on general and in-house counsel, impacting how they manage their legal teams. Our Legal Project Managers work closely between the client and Polsinelli teams to define project management practices, integrate technology with legal portfolio management, develop budgets for matters, and act as the point person for non-legal support with the goal of providing our clients with the dynamic information that helps them accomplish their goals.
- Secondment: Our firm is also active in “lending” our lawyers to work in-house for major corporate clients on a full-time, fixed-priced basis through Secondment. Our priority is matching the most appropriate lawyer to our client based upon experience and client needs. This can be a highly beneficial experience for both parties. Receiving quality, embedded legal support and the attorney and firm gaining valuable insights into our client’s culture and business, creating a climate of trust and stronger relationships.
