Depending on the circumstances and the nature of the mandate, we may even be able to provide you with a fixed quote enabling you to know in advance exactly how much your matter will cost you.
Based on a number of factors, including your own preferences as well as the nature of the mandate, we may enter into a formal retainer agreement with you. In other instances, we may simply set out our retainer through an exchange of e-mails although, as a general rule, mandates involving the resolution of a dispute will be consigned in a formal retainer agreement.
We generally do not work on a 100% contingency basis although in apt circumstances we may share some of the risk with our client in return for an appropriate success fee, which will often be expressed as a percentage of the amount in issue.
All new clients are asked for a monetary retainer, which is a sum of money that we will hold in trust for you until it is applied towards the payment of one or several future invoices.
We accept the following forms of payment: Canadian currency (subject to compliance with applicable anti-money laundering rules), cheques, bank drafts and Interac e-transfers. Please note that we do not accept credit card payments at this time.
