Nearly all of our services are provided under fixed fee arrangements. In larger matters, we may have “phases” to our work, since it is sometimes difficult to determine the complete scope of the project up front. After we have had a chance to examine the available documentation and consider the scope of the work, we will provide the client with a fixed fee. Be assured that we will not begin work on the project until the client has agreed to the scope of work and corresponding fees.
Our minimum retainer is $10,000, with larger deposits required for larger engagements. We normally require a deposit of at least 50% of the project fee prior to beginning work, with the balance due in full before the expert report is provided to the retaining client or attorney. For engagements with shorter deadlines or unusual circumstances, we may require the entire fee up front.
All of our engagements are done under fixed fee agreements. Occasionally we provide certain services for those engagements on an hourly basis at the following rates:
Administrative/Paralegal – $150 – $175
Analyst – $250 – $300
CPA / Expert Witness – $400 – $600
$500 fixed fee
Our consultation typically involves both the attorney and the client involved in the litigation or fraud matter. We want to understand the case, the specific services that are needed, and how our financial analysis and expert witness testimony can help the case. We will then make our recommendations, offering a range of services and corresponding fees.
