A Different Law Firm
Our lawyers are all BigLaw refugees. SBH’s lawyers each left large law firms because we were concerned about internal pressures to bill hours for the sake of billing hours, growing “originations” to justify our contributions to the firm, and pushing work down to inexperienced lawyers. We believe that our lawyers should handle the day-to-day aspects of our clients’ cases, work on improving our trial and other lawyering skills, and worry about whether we are returning the best possible results for our clients.

A Different Philosophy
SBH’s lawyers don’t measure success by the hours we bill to our clients or a column that occupies some accounting report. The firm’s success and each lawyer’s compensation is based upon the results we obtain as a team. There are no billable hour reports circulated to SBH’s lawyers. There are no bonuses based solely on hours billed. We measure our success by the results we deliver to our clients. Just like our clients’ cases are judged on the merits, we like to be judged on the merits.
In BigLaw firms, teams are put together based on title and rank within the firm. We don’t assign work based titles in our firm, such as partner, associate, or "senior associate." We assign work based upon which lawyer has the best skills to handle each particular situation. We encourage collaboration, rather than considering it a weakness. Some of our lawyers are better “on their feet” in a courtroom than others. Some of our lawyers are better at researching and writing than others. We identify each others’ strengths – and weaknesses – and work as a team to bring the best possible approach to representing our clients’ interests.

A Different Track Record
We are not “litigators.” We are trial lawyers who represent business. And SBH is in the business of winning. Our corporate clients hire us to represent them in “high stakes” commercial litigation and employment litigation. Although each case is different and we cannot predict future results based upon past verdicts, SBH’s lawyers will work tirelessly to represent your company’s interests.

The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Every legal matter is different. The outcome of each legal case depends upon many factors, including the facts of the case, and no attorney can guarantee a positive result in any particular case.
