Our Group has a keen awareness of the need for a cost-balanced approach to litigation. We strive to contain legal costs and at the same time provide a full and vigorous defense.

Bleakley Platt is committed to our clients’ success and believes that in some instances, an alternative fee arrangement may be preferable to a traditional hourly fee structure. Such arrangements require approval by the Firm’s management. To learn more about the Firm’s policy regarding alternative fee arrangements, click here or speak with a partner.
