Unbundled Legal Services

This page on unbundled legal services is scheduled for a complete rewrite in 2020 to more directly align with the strategies in our new bestselling book The Small Firm Roadmap and the coaching we offer in the Lawyerist Lab.

For too long the billable hour was the only pricing and delivery tool in a lawyer’s toolkit. And unfortunately, the billable hour is often one of the worst pricing systems a lawyer can use as it often pits a lawyer’s interests for income against a client’s interests for efficiency.

For over a decade we’ve been advocating for lawyers to pursue alternative fee models, including flat fee, unbundled, and a la carte legal services.

We do a lot of teaching about unbundled legal services and other alternative fee arrangements in our Lawyerist Lab program and include questions about these issues in our Small Firm Scorecard.

We’re in the process of building out this page, but in the meantime, we encourage you to learn more about our strategies for implementing unbundled services in your firm outlined in the Small Firm Roadmap. You can download the first chapter here.
