A Fortune 500 company may have a sizeable legal department and a significant budget for legal expenditures. Most small businesses don’t have legal departments or budgets to hire lawyers to pursue legitimate claims. I frequently talk with small business owners about a potential lawsuit but they’re weary of pursuing it because of the cost of hiring lawyers. While each case is different, I have represented businesses and individuals with fee agreements that minimize the financial impact of litigation on clients. In addition, some contracts include a prevailing party attorney fee provision while some claims brought under certain Colorado statutes or federal law include a prevailing party attorney fee provision which can shift the cost for the litigation to the opposing party.
Business works best when people are paid for the results they achieve. With a business or commercial litigation contigency fee model, the client only pays for results.
