Evolved, not virtual.
HCH Legal uses an operating model that keeps the firm in the background, and restores the direct relationship between attorneys and their clients. The firm provides our team with the tools to build, run, and manage a law practice. Our professionals have the freedom to scale their infrastructure and to define their client relationships.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO OUR CLIENTS?
Our professionals are responsive and adaptable to client needs. In traditional law firms, policies impose rules and standards designed to serve the firm, not the client. At HCH Legal, rate reductions, flat fees, fee caps, budgets, estimates, contingent fees, invoice adjustments, and other shared-risk fee structures are made at the discretion of the lead attorney. HCH Legal is designed to put the client and their individualized needs first.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR OUR PROFESSIONALS?
Our operating model allows our attorneys to establish and govern the financial relationship to suit the clients. Each professional makes his/her own decisions as to office location, staffing, business development, and other cost-elements. Rather than being assigned overhead by a traditional firm, our professionals can design their infrastructure to suit their practice.
WE ARE EVOLVED, NOT VIRTUAL.
Firms that operate like HCH Legal are often called "virtual" but there is nothing virtual about us. Reducing operating costs and adopting the latest technology for client service, positions HCH Legal where traditional law firms are all headed.
HCH Legal STANDS OUT BY OFFERING MORE.
HCH Legal is not the only, nor the first, law firm to adopt this operating model. However, HCH Legal is committed to providing the infrastructure necessary to attract and retain the best attorneys by allowing them to work at the highest levels. Our professionals are provided with network and phone technologies to encourage seamless collaboration and cohesiveness. We have a full-featured IP phone system and a cloud-based network on fully configured computers, with industry-leading document index/management, timekeeping, and billing applications. Our professionals are offered employee status, with access to health insurance and other benefits. We want our attorneys be well-equipped entrepreneurs, not isolated pioneers.
