Every day, businesses everywhere fall victim to gouging by law firms. It’s built into the law firm model. Lawyer compensation and advancement are based on “billable hours,” creating a powerful incentive to churn client matters. Timesheet padding is rampant.
Many businesses grudgingly accept this, believing they have nowhere else to go for top-quality legal services. Others are unaware of the abusive practices that pervade the law firm culture.
