The Future Of Goldman Law Develops

What Does A ``New-Age`` Law Firm Have To With Pirates?

Pure water of lake and mounts covered by snow in spring

Bermuda Shorts, Pirates & Rum

We discovered that clients did not wish to meet with us in our formal offices (we did not blame them) and even when they did, they claimed to be more keen on meeting at the beach, wearing shorts and drinking rum cocktails.

How then would it be possible to charge them on a pure time cost basis? On the other hand, complex transactions, involving billions of dollars, were undertaken entirely by email and telephone/video contact with a face to face meeting reserved for the celebration of another deal being closed. Clearly, per hour charge rates were ineffective and inefficient from a whole range of perspectives. In terms of time costing, there was no connection between the fees charged and the value of the work done. From the client's perspective, such billing was considered uncontrollable, unpleasant and created shocks and surprises that were not appreciated.

So, we now strive to give certainly to each client, as to their legal expenditure, and we approach the question of pricing with the client's specific needs and constraints in mind.

Pre-Covid Innovations

Removing paper, high-rise offices and outdated thinking.

Goldman's dispute resolution/ litigation group has furnished legal advice and steerage throughout a hard and vicious court scenario. I discovered them to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable, and honest. Jas is amazing on the overview and strategy. Ms Jen Cheal as the practice manager excels in knowledge, details and delivery; harnessing and enhancing the lawyers. Kim as client liaison is great to call when I need to speak with the legal eagles on weekends or nights when no one would answer my call! Thanks for the corny jokes Kim! (seriously). The senior team kept me informed and drove the litigation better than I expected and honestly, its no comparison to other firms I have used. I have used some very large and good firms (at 30% more cost +) but it always comes down to the people and their willingness. Not cheap here - but always reasonable and willing to review invoices and fees. Worth double with the drive and energy to win! Litigation is never a good thing and the last thing you need are jaded lawyers. Recommended and 5 star ! Thanks guys!

For you sceptics out there - No am not paid for these comments and no am not related to anyone at G&C 🙂 My experience with Goldman & Co Lawyers from start to end has been far less daunting and surprisingly pleasant which I wasn't expecting at all when dealing with lawyers. Everyone I spoke to was very approachable, professional and the best quality which was important to me - VERY RESPONSIVE with working to a tight dead line. Next best criteria for me was that G&C was very comparable when it came to pricing. I would have no hesitation in using Goldman & Co again if required and would recommend you give them a call to discuss your requirements.
