HENRY GANTT 1861–1919

“The service the lawyer renders is his professional knowledge and skill, but the commodity he sells is time” - Reginald Heber Smith, INVENTOR OF THE BILLABLE HOUR

“the habitual charging of fees less than those established in suggested or recommended fee schedules… may be evidence of unethical conduct.” – ABA Comm. on Professional Ethics Opinions (1961)

David Ogilvy

I pioneered the fee system, but I no longer care how I get paid, provided I make a reasonable profit. – David Ogilvy


“The last buggy whip factory was no doubt a model of efficiency…. There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” ― Peter F. Drucker
