We do not value our work on a time spent basis. This applies to bills as well as internal tracking of lawyers’ activities. Instead of producing timesheets, we provide clients with a detailed activity sheet enclosed with our monthly invoice. Therefore, unless you specifically request us to send you timesheets, only activity sheets will be supplied. 

As a rule, we do not bill by the hour. Our various alternative billing methods are value-based. Our coveted area of expertise is creating strategies. What may take weeks to deliver, we have delivered on the spot. We value speed and creativity. When our success is attributed to weeks of close collaboration with our client, we value solutions and lessons learned.
