Small Law Firm Scores with Big Clients
At the midtown law offices of Zeichner Ellman & Krause, partners proudly point out that the furniture is secondhand and the carpet is far from luxurious—or even new.

“We don’t go for gold doorknobs,” says co-founder Mark Zeichner. “We have offices that are adequate.”

At Zeichner Ellman, a 35-lawyer boutique with clients ranging from Citigroup Private Bank to Bear Stearns & Co., frugality is key. By skimping on overhead and by paying its attorneys a bit less, the firm is able to beat many of its competition on price.

In an era in which consolidation has created mega-firms, Zeichner is a small outfit that has found a way to fight back. It directly exploits the weakness of the legal behemoths—their bloated costs.

Its 16 partners’ hourly fees average $370, while its associates bill around $235. That compares with $800 for partners and $450 for associates at the big firms.

“Given the emphasis on cost-cutting and saving in corporate legal departments, firms like Zeichner Ellman play a valuable role,” says Richard Zakin, executive managing director at Strategic Legal Solutions, a recruiting firm. He notes that corporations can typically slice 10% from their legal bills by farming out to smaller shops all but the “bet-the-company” cases.
