Beveridge & Diamond is a midsize firm, with 100 lawyers in seven U.S. offices, that specializes in environmental, natural resource, and land use law and litigation.
The firm offers fixed rates for nearly 20 percent of its work, says Managing Principal Ben Wilson. It also purchased updated billing software and conducts early cost assessments of cases.
“What we’re trying to do is make certain the next generation of shareholders at our firm are getting all the coaching and assistance they need to build their practice. This is also about making certain we are looking at ourselves introspectively so we’re offering clients value,” Wilson adds.
