Hourly rates for lawyers have increased significantly. Klein & Wilson’s rates are lower than its BigLaw competitors, even though Klein & Wilson regularly tries cases against BigLaw. Fee structures are not the only problems at some law firms. At many firms, especially large firms, there are too many people assigned to a case. As a result, several attorneys bill for the same work. Often, inadequately supervised associates bill many hours for which the client receives little value. Klein & Wilson’s small firm structure gives clients more value for their litigation dollar.
Klein & Wilson primarily bills its time by the hour. Sometimes, the firm accepts cases on a hybrid or contingency fee basis.
