We work hard to make sure that our perception of value matches our clients’ perception – whether avoiding exposure to risk, finding a simple solution to a complex problem, clear communication, creativity, timely performance, ongoing support, legal skill, straightforwardness, or follow-up.
We are conscientious about client retention and pay close attention to client surveys. We are committed to controlling costs through lean staffing and creative billing options. We budget appropriately with built in flexibility for unanticipated or extraordinary events.
Consistent with our history of innovation, our firm is receptive to alternative fee arrangements. Sherin and Lodgen offers blended rates, caps, contingency arrangements and discounts for nonprofits, as appropriate.
I appreciate that Sherin & Lodgen retains a “big picture” perspective and will work towards reasonable and attainable solutions without jeopardizing a deal. They also understand the importance of managing costs. They consistently provide straightforward legal and cost assessments and have become an important participant in our cost/benefit analysis.
