screen-shot-2016-12-20-at-2-56-08-pmIs it that time already!? One minute it is Thanksgiving and then you blink and the New Year is on your heels. Many of us are packing our bags for the holiday break, worrying about getting our presents wrapped and purchasing last minute gifts. But we forget to stop. Stop for a moment and think about all of the people you see each day who would love a smile or a wave. Text your family and tell them not to stress too much about gifts or dinners. The time flies by every year. By the time our blog is flush with new content in January, 9DOTS is already thinking months and months ahead. We are sure your business works the same!

The holiday season isn’t the only time we should live joyfully & peacefully, but it is a good time to take a second to make the next year even better! Stop and smile, say thank you, more often than during just the holiday season. When we are up late and worrying about getting final gifts wrapped–take a moment to think about how lucky you are to be able to spend so much time with family.

I remind you to stop and take a minute, just as I write to remind myself and the rest of the 9DOTS team. We should live our mission each and every day, live our values of mutual respect & integrity outside of the holiday season. Our mission states that we offer precision solutions & uncompromising service, and that is what 9DOTS does, but our team lives all aspects of our mission and will work to weave it throughout the entirety 0f 2017 as well!

Happy Holidays! We hope your holiday season and new year are filled with peace, love & joy.

Global Legal Post posted just yesterday that “a recent survey conducted by the Association of Corporate Counsel has found that 50% of chief legal officers and general counsel are expecting the use of alternative fee arrangements to increase in the coming year.” The report suggests that using AFAs ensures a greater than 90% chance of keeping to budget targets, and thus helping to manage expensive litigation and other legal costs..
