New Law Firm Aims to Change Industry Culture

Pillar+Aught Launches Harrisburg Office




Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (February 6, 2017) — Nine innovative local attorneys today announce the launch of a full service law firm, Pillar+Aught LLC, with the goal of changing the traditional law firm experience by offering a new team approach and unique pricing options.

“It’s time for the legal profession to evolve,” said Todd Shill, co-founder of Pillar+Aught. “While outstanding client service and proven expertise will always be paramount, that simply isn’t enough anymore. Our profession needs to evolve like other industries to create a culture that uses the latest technology, is flexible, in terms of both pricing and delivery of services, and understands that the attorney-client relationship is a two way street.”

By integrating cutting-edge technology and committing to the development of long term client relationships, Pillar+Aught is able to offer more favorable pricing arrangements and unique value propositions, such as modestly priced, fixed fee in-house training seminars, flat fee Securities and Exchange Commission work, and no cost attendance at client board meetings. Traditional, old-guard law firms are burdened with high fixed overhead costs and a staid culture preventing them from offering such flexibility and innovation.

“A fundamental principle of Pillar+Aught is the understanding that every client is a ‘firm’ client,” said Ken Rollins, co-founder. “Clients are always astounded by how antiquated lawyer compensation systems are, which typically incentivize hoarding, gate keeping and prioritizing of relationships. At Pillar+Aught, we want our clients to know that they can contact any of our attorneys, any time, and that attorney will service that client with the highest priority.”

Highly regarded experts in their respective fields, Pillar+Aught attorneys have counseled clients in dozens of transactions representing hundreds of millions of dollars in transaction value, successfully litigated sophisticated commercial and employment matters before federal and state courts, negotiated complex collective bargaining agreements on behalf of counties, townships and boroughs, and recovered millions of dollars on behalf of injured victims.

Pillar+Aught’s founding partners hold numerous professional distinctions and honors and represent a combined 134 years of experience:

Kevin M. Gold Labor and Employment, Intellectual Property Law

Cory A. Iannacone Commercial Litigation, Labor and Employment Law

John R. Martin Commercial Litigation, Labor and Employment Law

Kate Deringer Sallie Business, Banking and Bankruptcy Law

Todd J. Shill  Business, Employment and Entertainment Law

Lindsey E. Snavely Commercial Litigation, Labor and Employment Law

“While each of us are proven experts in our practice areas, we offer an even greater resource to clients — a true team approach,” explained Kate Deringer Sallie, co-founder. “We are known for our responsiveness and practical guidance to all aspects of a client’s business. We are a one-stop-shop.”
