What Are Unbundled Services?
Unbundling of legal services occurs when a lawyer and client agree to limit the scope of the lawyer’s representation in a legal matter. When a lawyer’s services are limited in this way, the client stays in charge of and responsible for the client’s legal matter. The idea behind unbundling legal services is to reduce the costs of legal services by reducing the services the attorney provides. Unbundled legal services are offered as an alternative to complete legal representation in a matter. Unbundling legal services is not appropriate for all legal matters.
