Law firm bucks trend by offering clients fixed fee legal services
A local law firm is bucking the trend in the way it charges clients for legal services.
Whipping the Cat aims to differentiate themselves by charging clients based on a fixed-fee, rather than a traditional hourly-rate.
CEO and Founder Grame Wilson spoke to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about their business model.
The differentiating factor from other law firms is that right from the onset we decided to throw the hourly clock out the window and not charge people an hourly rate for legal services. Everything that we do is on a fixed fee basis.Grame Wilson, CEO and Founder of Whipping the Cat
Before we do anything we do a proper scope of what is needed and we give our client a price for that piece of work which is fixed.Grame Wilson, CEO and Founder of Whipping the Cat
