Alternative Pricing Arrangements

Serving clients with greater certainty, efficiency and results 

Winstead's Alternative Pricing Arrangements (APA) are designed to align attorneys and firm resources to meet our clients' business objectives in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible.

The firm has developed an APA policy and a process to assist clients with adopting customized billing arrangements and service plans. This effort is not just about alternative fee arrangements. It is also about collaborating with clients to develop strategic service plans that deliver value and results that contribute to their success

APA plans are developed through discussions with clients regarding their goals and objectives so that the foundation for the service strategy is strong. Topics discussed may include:

  • Client's short and long term business goals
  • Fee structures to match client goals
  • Budget forecasting and cost-control management
  • Appropriate staffing and supervision of staff
  • Utilization of technology to improve efficiency
  • Performance feedback from clients
  • Early case/transactional assessment
  • Joint multidisciplinary practice groups involving the client
  • Value-added services (news alerts, educational resources, onsite training/seminars)

To learn more about Winstead's APA policy and process, please contact your relationship attorney.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
