Complex Litigation Services (Part 5): A Complex Litigation Competitor with Sane Rates—How Hilgers Graben Has Done It
Over the course of this five-part series on complex litigation, we have defined what companies need when they buy complex litigation services (Part 1), typical marketplace options (Part 2), the pros and cons for virtual firms (Part 3), and why Big Law hourly rates are so high (Part 4).
