Unbundling Resource Center

Unbundling, or limited scope representation, is an alternative to traditional, full-service representation. Instead of handling every task in a matter from start to finish, the lawyer handles only certain parts and the client remains responsible for the others. It is like an à la carte menu for legal services, where:

  • Clients get just the advice and services they need and therefore pay a more affordable overall fee;
  • Lawyers expand their client base by reaching those who cannot afford full-service representation but have the means for some services; and
  • Courts benefit from greater efficiency when otherwise self-represented litigants receive some counsel.
