Fathom Law is a modern business and technology law firm delivering expert legal guidance fully aligned with their clients’ business strategies.
Fathom Law is also a Stride client.
What was the problem?
Eric Ferraro, the founders of Fathom Law wanted a service that would take the back office hassle of his plate, both the process and the personnel. Fathom Law commits its senior attorney’s to laser focus on tech client needs from financings to IP, litigation and M&A. There is little time for back office distractions but law firms like Fathom have to manage a lot of back office elements like time tracking, invoicing, collections, and compensation.
Eric didn’t want to hire in-house and hope that it would “work out” with that person. Having a single point of failure creates risk, as does the risk of hiring the wrong person.
“The reason we work with Stride is to have institutional stability.” – Eric Ferraro, Founder and Managing Attorney
