Contingency Fees: Simply Smart Business
Many businesses use general business counsel on an hourly or per-project fee, which makes sense for general business needs. When faced with the risks of significant litigation, however, the hourly fee framework is not ideal. That’s why we have developed a solution for our business clients. Spangenberg uses contingency fee arrangements and blended fee structures to share in the risk and exposure with our clients.
This approach to the legal fee system serves several purposes, including:
- Encouraging efficient and prompt resolution consistent with your goals
- Reducing financial exposure
- Eliminating the incentive to draw out litigation that is present under more traditional fee models
Intelligent Strategies Focused On Results.
Business disputes can quickly drain a company of resources that would be better focused on generating revenue. The needs of small, medium and large companies differ. Our firm can craft an individualized strategy designed to meet your business's unique needs.
If going to trial is the best—or only—option, we have the trial experience necessary to navigate the complicated legal landscape. At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, our reputation for preeminence and willingness to try cases to verdict speaks for itself, and changes the dynamic of otherwise drawn-out and seemingly endless business litigation disputes.
