Disparaging Discount Rates
Few people are willing to look a gift horse in the mouth, but Rees Morrison does just that when he criticizes law firms that offer discount rates in this post. Morrison wonders if discounted rates aren't just a way to provide less service or incentive for clients to sign up for more work. He writes that rates should reflect the ability and experience of lawyers -- and if that's the case, there's really no reason for discounts.
Does your company pressure firms to offer discounts? Are you a law firm that uses discounts to lure clients? What is your feeling about the practice of discounting. Tell me what you think.
