WE WORK WITH YOU DIFFERENTLY – PRICE CERTAINTY AND BETTER VALUE FOR YOU
The market is changing and clients don’t want to be charged for every six minutes they spend with their lawyers, receiving invoice after invoice. Other industries don’t charge that way, so why should lawyers? You have a responsibility to control your spend and we get that.
So at Actuate IP we work on a Fixed Price basis. Now that’s a game changer. At the start of each IP project we carefully scope it and then mutually agree on a fixed price.
HOW CAN WE DO THIS?
We can confidently scope your project because we are experienced at what we do. We know how a matter is likely to unfold and the choices that will need to be made. With a fixed price in place, we then collaborate with you and focus on what is important – getting the right job done.
Our innovative approach encourages collaboration and certainty. Traditional obstacles, like hard to control legal spend or exposure to inefficient time based charges are removed. Instead at the heart of it is an approach which is purely now motivated by achieving results in the most effective way possible.
REDUCE YOUR IP LEGAL SPEND
We also understand that the market now does not want to pay exorbitant legal fees. So we have structured our firm to meet that expectation. We utilise technology and project management methodology to confine firm overheads and expenses to what is necessary. This means we don’t pass on unnecessary overheads and other variables into the price we charge you.
With each fixed price project in place, it means you can communicate with your Actuate IP team as often as is required (email, meetings, phone) without extra fees. We call this Unlimited Access and it is a direct legal spend saving to you.
WHY DON’T WE CHARGE FOR THAT TIME, UNLIKE OTHER PROFESSIONAL SERVICE FIRMS?
Because we believe it fosters a productive client relationship and more importantly encourages key information share which is vital to achieving the right IP project outcome.
As a result of our innovative approach, you benefit by paying for what is necessary – our IP skill and expertise.
WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN FOR YOU?
Our client centric business model means you will benefit from top tier and specialist IP experience at lower pricing. You don’t have to pay top rates to access the same high quality IP expertise and results. With Actuate IP, at a reduced legal spend rate, you don’t compromise on premium expertise delivery either.
