In the old days, lawyers scribbled in red pen or dictated and typists typed.
A lot of law firms still work that way. Just – not us.
We all have a lot to read these days.
So we try to make our documents shorter and easier to understand by cutting out old-fashioned, opaque legal jargon.
We don’t think there’s any need for it – and our clients find our rejection of 19th century language refreshing!
Lawyers have a terrible reputation for saying “but on the other hand…”
In our opinion, that’s not good enough. It’s confusing, and it leaves clients feeling like they’re doing all the work.
Freedman + Hilmi operates on a different basis to most other law firms.
For a start, we favour fixed or capped fees over hourly rates. That’s because we know that cashflow and budgeting are vitally important to businesses.
