The Wave of the Future

- Reuters

We’re building a better law firm experience for attorneys and clients.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here is what our attorneys highlight when asked why they choose to practice at Scale.


The quality of the team is the #1 reason our attorneys work here. With thousands of applications in a few short years, we’ve been selective about who joins.


Our tech-first, efficient platform lets attorneys take home the majority of the value they create, which is high on the list of why our attorneys join the firm.


Despite our remote-first platform, two-thirds of our attorneys regularly work in teams of four or more attorneys.


We ask our attorneys to give us a regular NPS score (does your firm know what that is?), and we consistently rank “excellent,” the highest category.

Success on your terms.

Own the value you create.

Traditional firm fees are mostly waste: costs and profit that do not benefit the average client or attorney. We’ve turned that model on its head, and pass through the majority of the fees collected to the attorneys doing the work. That simple but fundamental switch reflects a completely different way of doing things.

Does the ‘Work from Anywhere’ Practice Model Lead to Increased Revenue? The Data Shows It Can.

The allure of working from home is here to stay. The pandemic showed us that not only is it possible, but it’s far more desirable for many, many lawyers and staff. Given the choice between taking a break from work by gossiping around the office water cooler or picking up their child from school, many have chosen the latter. Who needs to spend $20 on lunch when you can prepare a cheaper, healthier and more delicious lunch in your own kitchen? Why not clear your head by taking your dog for several walks throughout the day? And no one needs to sit in more traffic, ever.
