The Business Litigation Attorneys at Parker Waichman separate themselves from the pack by accepting business litigation cases on a contingency fee or “only-if-you-win-fee” basis. This means that you will not have to pay attorneys’ fees unless we prevail, and your attorneys’ fees will be paid from the recovery in your case.
Now, let’s discuss the benefits of working with Parker Waichman LLP. We offer a team of expert, experienced, and highly educated attorneys, who provide fair, ethical legal counsel that is unmatched in the industry, while also ensuring our clients receive individual attention throughout the entire process. We collaborate closely with our business clients to gain a full understanding of the legal issues they face and have the deep understanding and expertise needed to evaluate the various strategies required to provide the best legal options available concerning the merits of potential litigation and settlement, negotiation, and any budget and timing constraints.
What is a Contingency Fee?
According to the American Bar Association, a client pays a contingency fee to the attorney only if the case is successfully handled. Contingency fee agreements are only entered into in cases in which money is being claimed, which is generally seen in personal injury or workers' compensation claims, areas in which Parker Waichman LLP has significant experience.
Depending upon the state in which your case is brought, contingency fee cap rules may apply. For example, in New York State, the typical limit is 33 1/3 percent of the full recovery amount. Because of this, Parker Waichman LLP is able to offer contingency fee arrangements with lower contingency fees than those assessed by attorneys in other locations where contingency fees may be as high as 40 percent of the recovery amount.
With a contingency fee arrangement, we agree to accept a fixed percentage of the recovery, which is the amount that is finally paid in the case. If you win the case, the lawyer's fee comes out of the money that is awarded. When a case is pursued on a contingency fee basis, should the case not end successfully, neither you nor your lawyer will receive any money; however, under the contingent fee basis you will also not be required to pay attorney fees for the work completed on the case.
At Parker Waichman LLP, you may remain confident that, when we handle your case and you enter into an agreement on a contingent fee basis, you pay absolutely nothing. Some law firms mandate that their clients remain liable for various fees and charges, regardless of the outcome, such as court filing fees and fees for conducting depositions.
