A bunch of lawyers have agreed to pay a total of $50,000 to keep their clients who are suing them for retainer fees for up to a year, according to Ars Technic’s Aaron Smith.
The lawyers are trying to recoup costs incurred by clients who have lost attorneys because of the lawsuits.
The practice of “retainer fees” is legal in many states and some countries.
They’re used by lawyers who have retained an attorney for a period of time to avoid having to pay fees when a new lawyer comes on board.
If the attorney is terminated, the fees are refunded.
The attorney gets a portion of the fee, and if the client is terminated for any reason, the fee is still payable.
The money will be used to reimburse attorneys for the fees they’ve incurred.
“Retainer fees are a controversial practice that many lawyers have been hesitant to pursue because of their reputation,” Smith writes.
The average retainer agreement is $1,000, Smith reports.
He adds that this type of agreement is not uncommon for law firms, particularly when they are trying out new attorneys.
Retainer fees, which are typically set at a percentage of the amount of fees charged to a client, are common in litigation where the lawyer is not the one who is representing the client.
It’s common for lawyers to hire a third-party firm to represent their clients, which allows them to recuperate the costs of representing a client without having to hire an attorney.
“When you do a retainer, you can get reimbursed for costs you’re not actually responsible for, which can be significant,” Smith told Ars.
“You can save yourself a lot of money by hiring a third party and paying them directly.”
The lawyer is required to pay for all legal services that go into a retinue, including the legal fees that the lawyer has to pay.
But this fee doesn’t come without a cost.
If a client loses an attorney during a lawsuit, the lawyer’s retainer could be worth less.
If that happens, the client has to ask the court to force the lawyer to pay the lost fee.
Retinue agreements can vary, but they generally come in the form of a one-year retainer or a one year, five-year contract.
They can include a limit on fees paid, which is usually set at 20 percent of the total fees that will be charged to the client, Smith writes in his blog post.
The law firm that is the one paying the fees will be able to determine what fees they can recover, and that can include fees from court settlements.
The lawyer can also take the client’s case to arbitration if they want, Smith says.
“They can negotiate to make it easier for the client to recover the fees that are due, and they can also negotiate to get them back to the office as quickly as possible,” he said.
Retainers are typically meant to protect lawyers who are still working with clients.
When they terminate a client’s representation, the attorney can take the money to keep working on their case.
This means that lawyers are not paying any fees on their own, but instead can get to keep a portion.
Smith adds that a lawyer may also want to take the retainer money to recurments if the attorney has an ongoing legal matter, which means that the attorney will need to work on another case, as well.
“This means that if the lawyer retainer is in the $100,000 range, they’ll still be able afford to pay another lawyer or to hire another attorney, and the client will still be the one with the remaining fees,” Smith said.
This arrangement isn’t limited to retinues, either.
The RetainerLaw blog also mentions that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit recently ruled that the fees for certain law firms that work for the government could not be deducted from the fees paid by their clients.
This ruling, however, only applies to federal and state law firms.
“The law firm is a contractor and has no legal standing to object,” wrote Judge Stephen C. Smith, writing for the panel.
He added that he agreed with the panel that “the law firm has the right to opt out of the retinuance.”
