The litigation process represents a considerable investment of time and money by our clients.
The typical fee arrangement is an hourly fee arrangement whereby the fees are based on the lawyer’s hourly rate and the client pays the legal fees on a periodic basis.
Our current hourly rates are $265.00 for a lawyer and $100.00 for articling students, law clerks, and legal assistants.
However, there are alternate types of fee arrangements, including:
Contingency fee arrangement whereby the lawyer agrees to receive a percentage of the amount recovered after trial or settlement;
Flat fee arrangements whereby the client and lawyer agree to a specified fee. This is usually applied when a lawyer agrees to assist the client on a limited scope retainer for a specific procedural step in the litigation.
