Large companies can pay the high hourly rates charged by large law firms. Start-ups and small businesses cannot, yet they need the same quality of work. Fortunately, there are lawyers with years of large law firm experience that do not have to change high fees because they do not have the burdens of high overhead, junior lawyers whose compensation bears no relation to their contributions to the client, and unproductive (but highly compensated) partners. Roger Wiegley, with 17 years at Wall Street law firms and several years at financial firms, is one of those lawyers.
Long-term relationships with clients are far more important than fees for a particular assignment.
