At Gray Reed & McGraw, we understand the importance of sharing business risks with our clients. Doing so develops a bond of trust which, in our view, is the most critical aspect of the client-attorney relationship. We strive to work with our clients to arrive at a fee arrangement that encourages our mutual success and efficiency.

We are also a firm that understands how a soft and unpredictable economy can impact companies and business leaders.

Our goal is to be our client’s partner. One way we have always demonstrated our commitment to our clients is by offering options to standard hourly fee arrangements. We have regularly represented clients on the basis of alternative fee pricing, long before most firms started talking about alternatives to the classic hourly rate. Some of these forms of alternative billing include:

  • Fixed Fees
  • Contingency Fees
  • Negotiated Rates
  • Blended Rates
  • Retainers
  • Combination/Hybrid Terms

We frequently represent property owners in oil and gas, condemnation, major property damage claims, or ad valorem property tax litigation on a contingency basis.

Not all cases lend themselves to an alternative fee structure, but if you have a matter that you think might be appropriate for an alternative fee arrangement, we are happy to consider it. In addition, if you know someone who is concerned about their ability to fund the cost of complex commercial litigation let them know Gray Reed might be able to help.

Please contact a Gray Reed attorney to discuss your legal needs and a fee arrangement that best suits your particular situation, budget and preferences.
