“Outside GC grows concept with companion company,” October 16 Boston Business Journal article, quoted Paul E. Clifford on alternative law firm models.
From the article:
“I think you’re going to see more and more of these types of firms,’ said Paul Clifford, a principal at Law Practice Consultants LLC in Boston. ‘It’s a very valid concept that I think general counsels and companies like because they are experienced lawyers,’ he said. ‘What clients are looking for these days are experienced lawyers at a reasonable price. Because these outfits don’t have a lot of overhead, they can do outstanding legal representation at a reasonable price. Clients have rebelled against that whole $800 an hour routine.”
