Changing the Way Defense Firms Do Business

Boyd & Jenerette is a civil litigation defense firm that is comprised of experienced trial attorneys who represent insurance companies and self-insured entities in a wide range of civil claims and litigated matters. The attorneys at Boyd & Jenerette are well aware of the current issues facing our clients including costs of defense, close file rates, extracontractual exposure and current legal trends, and therefore we partner with our clients to develop defense strategies that are beneficial both as to cost and ultimate outcome.

We strongly believe that the traditional defense firm structure that was focused almost entirely on billable hours is outdated and does not meet our clients’ needs. In addition, we have found that we do not need to have multiple physical office locations in order to cost effectively service our clients’ needs throughout Florida and Georgia. We take advantage of the efficiencies that are possible due to technology, and have attorneys that work remotely in multiple locations who have secure access to the firm’s databases.

Committed to Cost Efficiency

Boyd & Jenerette stresses cost-effective case resolution in the following ways:

• Team approach including legal assistants and paralegals reduces billing
• Technology replaces travel whenever possible
• Remote access for attorneys minimizes fixed overhead expenses resulting in cost efficiencies that are passed on to our clients
• Paperless operating environment streamlines case management and reduces costs

Experienced in Metrics and Alternative Fee Arrangements

Boyd & Jenerette takes a business approach to the practice of law and is constantly searching for innovative ways to reduce the cost of litigation for our clients and this includes:

• Alternative rate structures
• Initial budgets for litigated matters
• Flat fees for litigated and pre-suit cases
• Flat fees for coverage matters, depending on complexity
Fast track teams
• Goals for closed files
• Targeted litigation plans to reduce expenses
