We know litigation can be costly. We also know that litigation is not a choice for defendants and often a
last resort for plaintiffs. These realities render the traditional law firm model of hourly billing impractical
in many cases. Moreover, at most firms, hourly billing is untethered to the result—you pay the same
hourly rate regardless of the result.
Our alternative fee arrangements provide a practical solution to these problems and ensure there’s no
daylight between our clients’ interests and our own. These arrangements may include fixed fees, fee
caps, contingencies, risk collars, and holdbacks. In almost all cases, our alternative fee arrangements our
tied to the result—if we win, we get paid more; if we lose, you pay less. We think this properly reflects
the central tenet of our Firm: winning matters.
