Venture Capital & Private Equity Law: Getting good legal advice for your business shouldn’t be painful. The Exemplar legal team is here to help your business thrive. That means taking the time to get to know you and your business, to understand your unique circumstances, challenges and goals. Exemplars unique structure allows our attorneys to provide relationships as a service, with only value-based pricing and no hourly billing.
Value-based pricing is transforming the legal industry. With value based pricing, the goal is to pay less for the effort and more for the results. When implemented properly, it promotes the following:
- reduces total legal spend
- increases predicability of budget
- Reduces billing disputes
- promotes law firm risk-sharing
- improves the productivity of attorneys
Exemplar Companies was one of the first business law firms in American History to abandon the hourly bill over 15 years ago. We prioritize forming genuine relationships with the clients we serve, and genuine relationships don’t happen when you bill by the hour.
