How Does an Alternative Fee Arrangement Work?
At the outset of a case, we will provide an initial case assessment and put together a proposal. As part of our initial conversation, we may suggest an AFA; we also encourage you to be proactive and ask us about the possibility of an AFA. At that point, we will discuss the specifics of the case in more depth, so that we can assess the complexity of the matter and likelihood of success, your definition of success, and an estimate of the time to be spent on the matter. Once we have made the necessary analysis, we will give you a formal proposal and discuss with you to see whether it makes sense for you.
