Fee Arrangements

Litigation involves both risk and reward.

Results matter. Costs do too.

We don’t follow a leverage-billing model where more work is its own goal. We work for results. With an alternative fee, you can share in the benefits of our approach. Whether your case calls for a contingent fee, a fixed fee, or a hybrid fee, alternative billing arrangements provide you with the stability, flexibility, and upside to suit your case’s needs.

Contingent fees demand competent representation. They end the stream of bills and eliminate busy work. Contingent fees drive results because contingent fees reward lawyers for effectively and efficiently resolving their client’s problem. We prefer to get paid to solve your problems, not just work for work’s sake.

Fixed fees are growing in prominence, particularly among corporate clients. Built with budgets in mind, fixed fees provide predictability and accountability. We work with the client and learn about the particulars of the case to arrive at a fair fixed fee that works for both the lawyers and the client. As litigation ebbs and flows, fixed fees protect you from the unpredictability of hourly billing.

Hybrid fees combine a fixed or hourly fee at a reduced rate with a smaller contingent component to reward the firm for desired results. This billing arrangement reduces the risk to the lawyer and client. Hybrid fees temper the potential expense of a fixed or hourly representation while retaining for you a larger portion of any award. Flexibility is the hallmark of hybrid fees because it allows us to create a fee structure that meets the particular needs of your case.

In all cases, we collaborate with you to tailor the fee arrangement to fit each particular case’s merits and risks.
