LaGarde Law Firm offers a contingency fee arrangement for business litigation, allowing businesses to receive legal representation without shouldering the costs up front. With a contingency fee arrangement, rather than being compensated with an hourly or per-case fee, we carry the costs of litigation initially and accept a percentage of the settlement as payment. In addition to our fee, we are also reimbursed for court costs and other expenses that we have incurred on the client’s behalf.

The contingency model is a mainstay of personal injury law, but is not typically applied to business disputes, such as litigation over breach of contract, financial fraud and breach of fiduciary duty. At LaGarde Law Firm, we understand that many business disputes can be prohibitively expensive to litigate even when your case is strong, which is why we take on the costs and risks of litigation with you.

Houston businesses can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in up front attorney fees

Traditional business litigation fee structures often entail hundreds of thousands of dollars in up-front legal fees, with no guarantee of success. At the same time, hours billed, rather than cases won, becomes a metric of productivity for attorneys. In some cases, the cost of litigation may end up exceeding the cost of the hours billed. Hourly billing is especially limiting for small businesses in dispute with larger corporations, who may be unable to seek recourse without business contingency fee legal services.

Your lawyer has a strong incentive to achieve maximum results

Operating on a contingency basis means that we have a strong incentive to obtain the greatest recovery possible. As a contingency fee law firm, we only get paid when we get results. This also means that we are confident in the merit of the cases we accept.

Business contingency fees are determined on a case by case basis. The expected costs of litigation and the level of risk associated with the case are the most influential factors.

If your business has sustained damages as a result of wrongdoing on the part of another person or business, consulting with a skilled attorney is the first step to getting compensation. LaGarde Law Firm is home to experienced business litigation attorneys who provide legal services on a contingency fee basis.
