    Companies welcome the efficiency of the small firm model. Clients get a triple bang for their buck - more partner attention, lower partner rates, and less of the inefficient and high-rate associate time appearing on bills. Small firms are also able to sustain themselves better with a model that seeks early resolution of cases; by contrast, large firms would go out of business if they settled most of their cases early on.

    I think this is a good move, towards more nimble work practices
