WE OFFER FLEXIBLE BILLING ARRANGEMENTS
Many small and medium-sized businesses are often constrained by litigation costs. Sometimes, the choice can be between foregoing a valid legal claim and paying high legal fees. Large law firms are notorious not only for billing junior attorneys at absurdly high hourly rates, but also for staffing unnecessarily large teams to handle business disputes.
We offer flexible, alternative billing arrangements in certain types of cases. This practice let our clients know in advance how much their lawyers will cost.
FLAT FEES PLUS REASONABLE COSTS AND EXPENSES
Under this billing arrangement, we will charge a flat rate as a fee, plus reasonable litigation costs and expenses. Litigation costs and expenses might include court filing fees, court reporters, deposition transcripts, and expert witness fees. These billing arrangements avoid surprise invoices and allow clients to know in advance the maximum fee obligation.
MIXED FEE ARRANGEMENT
A mixed fee arrangement is a hybrid between the traditional hourly rate (or capped flat fee) and a contingency fee. For example, we may assess a flat fee that limits the client’s out-of-pocket fee obligation in addition to a contingency (or success) fee that assess the balance of fees as a percentage of the client’s recovery at trial or through settlement. Much like a flat fee, a mixed fee arrangement makes out of pocket costs for fees predictable and wholly within a client’s control.
