What We Offer
Value

Although a substantial portion of our work is conducted on a nationwide basis, our Midwestern roots are reflected in our pricing.  We want to partner with our clients to reach the right solutions for all of us.  And, while much of our work is done on a traditional, hourly basis, we offer a variety of alternatives on projects that are best approached differently:

  • fixed-fee contracts focused on specific types of matters;
  • fixed-fee contracts based on the phases of a matter;
  • fixed-fee contracts for specific services; and
  • outcome-driven fees ranging from traditional contingency fees to hybrid billing.

There's no one best system.  A value-oriented, more flexible approach is a better model for both attorneys and clients.

Computer-Aided Design Does Not Make You a Copyright Cad

Architects, designers and developers in the age of computer-aided design (CAD) are understandably uncertain about copyright protection for architectural plans, criteria drawings, layouts and other instruments of service. A recent decision out of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio found that copyright infringement did not arise from layering another architect's prototype plans into a CAD file and using them as part of a "tool kit" to create new architectural plans because the new plans were not shown to be substantially similar to the prototype plans....
