Working with You

Innovation & the Delivery of Legal Services

We address client goals in ever-changing environments through professional matter management and leveraging technology, with a human touch.

 

Greenberg Traurig is a leader in creating and implementing alternative fee arrangements that provide value for our clients. A significant amount of GT’s work annually utilizes alternative fee arrangements, representing more than 1,000 clients in many industries.

The best and most effective arrangements require input from the client; the open sharing of information; and a clear understanding of, and alignment with, the client’s business objectives. Working with our clients with the goal of reducing and controlling the legal spend, we have used various approaches, including:

  • Fixed Fee Arrangements
    • Fixed fee for entire matter
    • Fixed fee for specific phases or tasks
    • Portfolio pricing
  • Shared Risk Arrangements
    • Holdbacks with success fee
    • Broken deal discount
  • Blended Rates
  • Hybrid Fee Arrangement

Our certified project managers have over 50 years of experience delivering value through innovation, including but not limited to process improvement and client portals for 1) litigation matter management and matter status tracking, 2) matter document management, and 3) expert witness tracking, among others.

The team:

  • Develops and implements matter support tools and templates.
  • Works with outside counsel as well as within client legal departments.
  • Offers project management education to increase efficiency and transparency.
  • Leverages technology to reduce costs, streamline processes, and increase communication.

Greenberg Traurig has invested in third-party and proprietary software which allows for tracking, managing, and reporting on alternative fee arrangements as well as budgeted hourly matters. Key staff members, including a Chief Pricing Officer, financial analysts, and legal project managers, actively assist the client and GT legal team in developing and managing alternative fee arrangements.
Our strategic integration of technology keeps costs down, keeps our attorneys accessible and connected to clients, and expedites solutions. We leverage a variety of technologies to help support our clients and their unique goals.

We provide:

  • Innovative, reliable back-office systems.
  • Seamless knowledge management.
  • Litigation support and eDiscovery.
  • On-site software development.  
  • Custom client collaborations.

Greenberg Traurig is committed to the security of the data entrusted to us by our clients. To this end, we have joined a small group of leading law firms that have obtained the highest level of data security certifications:

  • The recognized international standard ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for our critical data systems, including our document management system, email system, and our U.S. data centers and
  • Privacy Shield designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission and Swiss Administration specifying data protection requirements needed to be in place when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United Sates.

The process by which both certifications are achieved is thorough but critical in today's data-driven business climate. The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system, including compliance with more than 100 controls in areas covering Access Control, Encryption, Incident Management, Business Continuity, Policies, Human Resources, Asset Management, and beyond. Privacy Shield certification requires all Privacy Shield participants to declare their commitment to complying with the Privacy Shield Principles which is enforceable under U.S. law. These principles include providing free and accessible compliant dispute resolution, cooperating with the Department of Commerce, maintaining data integrity and purpose limitation, ensuring accountability for data transferred to third parties, transparency related to enforcement actions and ensuring commitments are kept as long as data is held.

This is more than just about better technology; it is about optimizing the way we think and act to protect our clients, online or offline, because clients’ best interests are at the core of everything we do.
