A local law firm is bucking the trend in the way it charges clients for legal services.


Whipping the Cat aims to differentiate themselves by charging clients based on a fixed-fee, rather than a traditional hourly-rate.


CEO and Founder Grame Wilson spoke to CapeTalk’s Kieno Kammies about their business model.
