“I’ve felt more connected joining Practus (a virtual law firm, in the middle of a global pandemic) than I did when joining my previous law firm.”

Andrea Shaw, Partner

My clients prefer the pricing and service aspects of the business model and have directly benefited from having senior lawyers in my field bringing a depth of experience to the table.”

Alex Alberstadt, Partner

“When a client wants to hire me, they get me and the benefit of my work product. They aren’t paying for me to farm out work to a junior associate who has never practiced in the area before.”

Ethan Corey, Partner

“Practus has allowed me to better manage my work and personal life. Not only the virtual aspect of the firm, but the collaborative nature of all the partners. Practus provides us with optimal work-life balance.”

Robert Moreiro, Partner

“The bench strength to practice law nationally with finance and deal making partners in the areas where my labor and employment and policy work creates cross marketing opportunities.”

Robert Fried, Partner
San Francisco, CA

“Clients reasonably expect their law firms to leverage technology and efficient processes to reduce the cost and increase the impact of their legal spend.  Practus allows me to deliver on this expectation.”

Is there a financial incentive to keep work at the firm?

Yes! You get financially rewarded by keeping work in-house. We want your colleagues to refer business to you and vice versa. We work hard to create a culture that encourages collaboration and cross-selling so that you can grow your book.

How do you handle billing and fee arrangements for clients?

At Practus, attorneys can run their practice how they see fit. Alternative fee arrangements are encouraged. Whether it is a fixed fee, success fee, contingency fee or an hourly fee, it is up to you and your client. We use a leading comprehensive practice management solution called ProLaw by Thomson Reuters. It helps partners connect, track matter updates, stay current and have secure access anytime from anywhere.

Where do partners work?

Partners can work wherever they thrive. Practus is primarily a virtual firm with few brick and mortar locations. Most partners prefer to work from their home offices. Others rent office space that they share with local Practus partners. Some partners even rent occasional space at Regus and only use it when they have meetings. Whatever works best for you and your practice is what we support.

How do partners work together?

Culture, collaboration and cross-selling are all dependent on each other. We nurture a strong work culture because we know that a cohesive team helps bridge gaps and keeps people connected. We have regular events, celebrations, meetings and virtual activities that help our attorneys feel united. We also encourage smaller group meetings and working sessions to help attorneys with business development planning and strategic client pitches. Our business team of non-attorneys provide support and are dedicated to help our partners grow their books.

What technology do we offer when you join?

Given our virtual model, technology is a critical component to our success. Our Chief Technology Officer meets with every single partner during their onboarding process and helps them develop a bespoke software and hardware checklist so that they have everything they need on day one.

  • Pro Law by Thomson Reuters
