Results-Based Fee Agreements: Plaintiff side Contingent Fees

Historically, contingent fee litigation has been undertaken for a flat percentage of the recovery. Populus Law sometimes will handle your case on this basis. The specific percentage depends on the nature of your case, so please contact Populus Law for a quote.

Populus Law also handles contingent fee litigation for a sliding percentage of the recovery. Litigation has very specific stages starting with pre-suit investigation all the way through trial and appeal. Because Populus understands each of the stages, it can handle your case for a percentage fee that starts relatively low and gradually increases as the case progresses to and through trial. What this means is that if Populus Law settles your case quickly, you receive a greater share of the settlement.

The option that is best for you depends on the nature of your case and your litigation goals. Populus Law is happy to discuss the alternatives with you and give you the time you need to examine your options and decide which one is best.

No matter how you choose to structure your fee agreement, Populus Law will never encourage you to settle for less than full and fair compensation.
