Value In Action

Value In ActionMuch is being made in the current economic climate of new efforts by law firms to lower fees and be responsive to the financial challenges clients are facing. At Lindabury, we have not waited for the seismic shift in the economy to consider the financial challenges of our clients. We have long sought to provide excellent value through the fine work we do and the reasonableness of our fees. Our law firm model is built around quality legal representation, personal partner attention to clients, and efficient associate attorney and support personnel staffing. We strive to make every client feel as though each is our only client by going above and beyond what is asked and expected.

Critical to this orientation is effective communication. We work with our clients at the onset of an engagement so that attorneys and the client are aligned regarding goals, objectives and outcomes. We have found this approach affords us the best opportunity to achieve desired results and objectives.

Our firm is constantly adapting to meet the changing needs of the business community. To better serve our clients, Lindabury invests in new technology and training and the professional development of our attorneys and staff. This training and education allows us to efficiently manage the complex transactional and litigation matters clients rely on us to address.

Lindabury also invests in the development of our associate attorneys. We maintain a robust attorney mentoring program whereby senior lawyers in the firm are responsible for guiding younger lawyers in their professional development. The multi-year mentorship program helps Lindabury nurture and develop a homegrown stable of highly trained and qualified attorneys who understand the law and the business environment in which the law is applied. Through this mentoring program we are working to ensure that future generations of Lindabury attorneys are attuned to benefits of our value-oriented approach: providing the highest quality legal service while creatively collaborating with our clients.

We work with clients at the onset of an engagement to discuss fixed fee and other alternative fee arrangement options. As with any fixed fee arrangement, all of the parties involved need to be satisfied with the arrangement for it to be truly successful. Such was the case recently when our client sought to close on venture capital financing. For the client and the venture capital group providing the capital, establishing reasonable certitude regarding the legal costs of the deal was critical. The client, a $20 million payroll and employee benefits services company, could not afford to see too much of its funding go to legal fees after it had carefully negotiated the buyout of partners and sought to expand its business. Lindabury’s Bob Anderson, one of our corporate and securities attorneys, was familiar enough with the client and the details of a $7.5 million transaction and experienced enough with the nature of the deal to prepare a fixed fee that was acceptable to all parties. Bob negotiated, documented and closed the deal on time and within budget and helped to set the client on course for its promising future.

We welcome new and current clients who want to work with us to solve or avoid legal problems or obtain other effective representation at costs that meet your financial objectives. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your legal needs.
