At Michael’s Law Firm, we try to be flexible in terms of our fee arrangements, and in select cases, may consider handling matters on a contingency fee basis (provided documented damages are high enough). If we elect to handle your case on contingency, our fees are simply a percentage of any money recovered, though depending upon the case, we may require you to cover disbursements, which include things like Court filing fees, fees for process servers, expenses incurred, expert reports, and so on. Handling matters on contingency depends upon the anticipated value of the case along with the perceived credit worthiness of the defendant (in most cases, contingency representation is unlikely where the defendant is an individual without insurance coverage). If you have questions about the payment arrangements that may be available in your case, call our Toronto and Hamilton law office at 647-495-8995 to discuss your case today.
In most Commercial Litigation cases, fees are charged on an ‘hours worked’ basis. Thus, if you only need our Ontario business lawyer for a few hours to consult with regarding negotiations or to review a certain document, you will only pay for the actual time spent on your matter. In other cases, we offer limited scope retainers where likewise, we only charge for the work performed (typically, for one unique step or process in your matter). At your initial consultation with Michael’s Law Firm, we will explain how this fee arrangement works in further detail.
