Occasionally, WLG will take cases on contingency - where if we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us any fees. WLG does not accept many cases on contingency and satisfaction of a very stringent review process is required to be considered for a contingency fee service arrangement.
Hybrid billing arrangements are very common for WLG because of the flexibility they provide to the firm and to the client. In assessing the needs of the client and the circumstances of the case, flexibility in billing arrangements often helps clients obtain the legal representation they need to move their case forward or to conduct routine legal counseling, preparation of contracts, etc. Hybrid arrangements may include aspects of hourly billing, contingency fees, flat fees, capped fees, replenishing retainers, paid costs and more.
