We Focus On Value First
At Sbaiti & Company, clients look to us to produce the best possible result at the best possible value. Our size and structure allows to best produce value for our clients, and customize fee arrangement to match our clients’ needs. Sometimes that means a traditional hourly fee model, something it means a fee arrangement where we share the risk with our client. Producing the highest value for our client is our prime directive.
Traditional Billing Methods
Recent publications have reflected the upward trend in legal fees, meanwhile, we have been able to keep our rates stable for the benefit of our clients. And while competing on price is not our core value proposition, it is an unavoidable fact that our low overhead and lean staffing means that—compared to the large firm attorneys we litigate against and compete with Sbaiti & Company’s rates are substantially lower in the markets we most usually practice in.
This explains why more and more, Texas-based clients hire us to handle matters in the other states we are admitted in – California, New York and Washington D.C.—as well as several where we regularly practice with the assistance of local counsel, such as Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Arizona, etc.
To help clients manage the expense and risk of litigation, we often work with clients on a contingency fee or alternative structured fee that rewards us when we win. This aligns our interests with our clients’ best outcomes.
It is not uncommon for us to represent plaintiffs or defendants on a contingency fee basis that allows our clients to conserve cashflow during the pendency of litigation, but then rewards us accordingly for a successful result.
There are three success fee models we look at with clients to best balance the risk/rewards of our partnership with our clients:
Full Contingency Fee
Monthly Flat Fee + Success Bonus
Reduced Hourly Rate + Success Bonus
These fee structures are tried and true and work very well to balance the risks and rewards of litigation with the inevitable litigation costs and fees that can sometimes inhibit a client’s ability to fully litigate their matter and go the distance.
