In 2008, as a small band of BigLaw refugees, we started the alternative fee arrangement revolution by creating Valorem Law Group. We designed the firm with two specific missions: (1) handling complex litigation nationally using alternative fee arrangements (AFAs) while (2) providing unwavering client service. Even Wikipedia credits Valorem as one of the groundbreaking firms for AFAs (and no, we didn't post that ourselves). In 2016, we were named one of the 22 firms in the U.S. "Best at Delivering AFAs." Legal departments big and small hire Valorem to handle their commercial litigation needs -- not just because they want budget certainty, but because we have a proven track record of success in courts across the country.
At Valorem, we draw on our experience handling hundreds of lawsuits since 2008 using alternative fee arrangements to continuously improve our methods. We couple all fee arrangements with practical tools and technology so clients can maximize legal spend while getting unwavering client service and the outcomes they need. Our experience has not gone unnoticed -- clients often come to us for Second Opinions to objectively evaluate an issue in a lawsuit or weigh in on the overall strategy for a matter being handled by others.
If you are new to Valorem, don't come to us because we have been doing alternative fee arrangements longer than other firms, come to us because you want business-savvy, result-driven lawyers who are different in ever way (except quality) than the same old, same old. We've been waiting for you. Seriously.
