Alternative Fee Arrangements

The business and legal markets are ever-evolving, and Christian & Small offers alternative fee arrangements that meet the changing needs and goals of our clients. The firm generally charges its clients on an hourly rate schedule, with rates commensurate to the experience level of the attorneys handling the matter, as well as the matter’s complexity.

In an effort to meet the needs of our clients, Christian & Small has arranged a number of alternative fee arrangements that may better suit the different types of representation sought by our clients. Some examples of these alternative fee arrangements include (but are not limited to):

  • Labor & Employment: A monthly retainer to handle any employment and/or Human Resource issues that may arise for businesses – with the retainer amount being tied to the number of employees of that company;
  • Commercial/Business Contracts: Flat fees for basic contracts and corporate formation documents; and
  • Litigation: Flat fee arrangements for certain types of litigation where different fees are earned for different benchmarks over the course of litigation.

If you are a business or professional looking to explore alternative fee arrangements, we invite you to discuss these with the Christian & Small attorney(s) who serve as your primary contact for handling new matters. We always strive to be innovators in every aspect of our practice and are committed to developing diverse models of value-based billing alternatives for our clients.
