The Prinz Law Office to Launch New Alternative Billing Solution

Monday, October 1st, 2018

The Prinz Law Office is pleased to announce the launch of a new alternative legal billing solution for our clients in the software/SaaS, tech and health tech/digital health, and IT/healthIT industries: the subscription billing model.  We have been following the recent popularity of this model with California companies, and have decided to adopt our own version.  We believe that it may be a good fit for clients with ongoing firm needs, particularly in the transactional space.  Our new plans will be based on daily and half-daily billing, eliminating traditional hourly timekeeping for clients who choose this option. For more information on how a subscription solution would work, please contact Kristie Prinz at kprinz@prinzlawoffice.com or 408.884.854.
