I have recently partnered with a friend to launch Greathouse Holloway McFadden PLLC, a new nontraditional law firm. GHMC was started by Wanda Greathouse Holloway, one of the foremost experts in the United States in labor and employment matters and myself (Barry McFadden), a corporate and transactional lawyer (and most recently senior counsel in the Houston office of Seyfarth Shaw). GHMC currently has seven full, part-time and contract attorneys and is following the non-traditional firm approach. We are currently using the virtual office model with lawyers located in a number of different cities, and our model is based upon nearly unlimited flexibility (we say that “clothing is optional” when working since we permit all lawyers to work remotely) and far lower billable hour “goals.” The initial client reaction has been nothing but positive and we are already working with a number of Fortune 50 and 100 clients. Additionally, the reaction from other lawyers with similar credentials that desire to join our firm has been incredible.
