In some matters the Derbes Law Firm will represent a client while being remunerated other than on an hourly fee basis. Any such other basis would be set forth in the engagement letter/fee agreement. Other fee arrangements might be as follows.
A flat fee is an agreed upon payment for the entire matter or case. This fee arrangement is sometimes employed for a simple will, a simple succession, a debtor’s chapter 7 or chapter 13 filing, a short contract, or in connection with the formation of an entity. The flat fee arrangement is not limited to these matters. Our firm also performs notary work on a flat fee basis.
With a contingency fee the law firm takes a percentage of what is recovered, typically one third. The Derbes Law Firm generally expects clients to nonetheless pay out of pocket expenses during the course of the case; such expenses are billed monthly. Contingency fees are often utilized for business disputes and lawsuits, including commercial collections.
A blended fee arrangement is a fairly new and innovative method. In it the client pays a portion of the published hourly rate (typically one half), as well as the costs, but at the end of the case wherein there is a recovery in favor of the client, the Derbes Law Firm will receive a portion of the recovery (typically one sixth). The blended fee is utilized in lieu of a contingency fee.
