Our alternative fee arrangements: all about partnership
When we opened our doors 30 years ago, we introduced a new, innovative idea to the legal profession: alternative fee arrangements (AFA). A creative approach that moves beyond traditional hourly billing, the AFA model underscores our commitment to clients and to successful outcomes. And it works: What started at Burns White in 1987 has become an accepted industry-wide practice today.
Recognized for our creative billing structures, Burns White works with clients to identify a value-based fee arrangement that fits within their budgets and meets their legal—and business—needs. While we offer a variety of AFA options, all are based on three fundamental elements: predictability, risk-sharing, and partnership. These basic tenets help to eliminate financial uncertainty and reinforce our commitment to delivering the best outcome for your business.
