Holdbacks

What We Do

We believe the final fee paid should reflect the outcomes achieved.  So many of our fee agreements involve a holdback, where a portion of our fee (20% is the most often used percentage) is not paid until the end of a matter or when some other benchmark is reached.  At that point, either at your discretion or according to some other criteria, the holdback (or some portion of it) is paid to us or refunded to you.  There are infinite variations on this concept, but the idea is that the money is at risk and our performance and your satisfaction are the criteria by which allocation of the holdback is determined.
