OUR FEES

HOURLY

The majority of commercially contested matters are billed based on how long it takes the lawyer to accomplish what you’ve hired them to do. We offer a schedule of rates and also a Flat Firm Hourly Fee in many circumstances.

FLAT FEE

Several areas of law are more transactional in nature – that is, there are a standard set of steps to complete the task. The time and cost to complete the steps is fairly consistent. For these areas of law, we are able to set a fixed price to accomplish the transaction. In the odd case, a situation may fall outside of the norm and as a result may cost more or less. If this is the case, we would discuss this with you in advance of starting work on your file. We would come to an agreement on the cost before you commit to hiring us.

CONTINGENCY

Contingency billing is when you don’t pay unless the lawyer recovers money for you. Usually you agree to pay the your legal representative a percentage of what you receive. Contingency arrangements start at 25% at Higgerty Law. Our team will meet with you to determine whether or not we feel you have a case. If we feel confident that you will be successful, we may offer to may take the file on contingency. You will sign a contract outlining the specific payment details. Whether you are responsible to pay the necessary disbursements as you go along will be something decided at the outset.

INCORPORATION

The total cost to incorporate provincially including our fee and disbursements is $1800 including tax.  You pay in advance.  The funds are held in trust and spent as needed on disbursements, like the set up of your minute book, seal and registration of officers and directors.  We pay ourselves only after your company is incorporated and the minute book assembled.

NOTARY PUBLIC

To have a lawyer or commissioner of oaths notarize a document costs $75 + GST.  Each additional document requiring notarization costs $20 + tax.  You pay at the office after the documents are notarized.  If you are a past client of the firm, the notary public service is complementary.  If your documents require notarization, you must wait to sign the document in front of the notary public.  The person signing the documents must also bring a valid original (not a photocopy) government issued photo ID.
