Since 1965, Freeman & Freeman has successfully handled hundreds of complex civil trials and appeals, and has resolved thousands of matters without trial, in twenty-two states, D.C., and in federal courts throughout the country. The firm is rated by its peers as preeminent counsel in Martindale-Hubbell’s published peer rating system for lawyers. The value to our clients, however, is not measured so much by the experience and success in handling their litigation claims, but in our ability to protect our clients’ interests from the inception, avoid costly and protracted litigation altogether, and better position our clients to achieve their business directives.
The long-term relationships Freeman & Freeman have built with its clients stem from applying one fundamental premise:
EVERYTHING IN THE ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
MUST SERVE THE CLIENT’S BUSINESS PRIORITIES.
Gone is the notion that there is a mystique about lawyering that allows the lawyer to control the client and define the relationship. In its place are these basic forensic business values we practice every day:
|We have strong business instincts. Our legal services are designed to facilitate your ability to achieve your business goals.|
|We make it our business to understand your business, not just the legal issues relating to it.|
|We act as your true business partner. Our legal representation is one of true collaboration with you.|
|We keep you apprised of changes in the law affecting your business operations.|
|We educate and inform your personnel, consistent with your company’s needs. We provide “in-house” seminars and other valuable educational resources that are of real value to you and your staff.|
|We are accountable to you. Fee and expense projections, planned staging of our representation, periodic evaluation of the progress and direction of the assignment, and of potential outcomes, all allow you to plan more effectively.|
|Our senior attorneys are actively engaged on your legal matters, yet our business model allows us to provide their services at substantially lower cost to you. By streamlining our overhead, we pass through the savings to you, our client.|
|Value-based legal fees are an option, including up-front negotiated fee projects or risk-sharing agreements.|
Freeman & Freeman is committed to these values; our peers rate us as pre-eminent; our clients endorse our representation of their interests and our commitment to the success of their business; and our longevity speaks to our stability.
Let our experience ensure your future. We welcome your inquiry, and as always, your initial consultation is on us.
