he difference between greatness and mediocrity is focus, attention, and persistence. We understand that what looks like talent or skill is often persistent focus and careful preparation. This is how we approach our work with clients.
Every firm says they're client focused. We make our client’s lives easier. What that means to us is that we respond quickly, we speak simply, we explain thoroughly, we listen carefully, and we make our advice actionable.
We have high standards. We believe that high standards are contagious; people are drawn to high standards. Our clients and associates choose to work with us because of our high standards.
At Jibe, our billing philosophy transcends hours and invoices. It’s less about money and more about integrity.
Services fees are a big part of the reason we created this firm: to deliver value. As chief legal officers, we represented our clients as buyers of legal and technology services. We have worked with low-budget vendors and regretted it. We have worked with Ivy League lawyers and cringed at hourly rates over $1,000. At the end of the day, we had to defend our budget and represent work product to a board of directors.
We know how to right-size a project based on our clients’ risk tolerances and budgets, because we’ve been there.
We encourage all of our clients to consider their representation options carefully. While our firm is structured around value, we may not be the cheapest option you can find, but we definitely will not be the most expensive. We commit to delivering value, meaning that we would be happy to be on the receiving end of the invoice.
We know that with each project we perform for your business, or each contract we negotiate on your behalf, we made your business a little more valuable.
