Limited Scope Retainers
A Limited Scope retainer is often referred to as the "unbundling" of legal services and is generalized as services that a lawyer or paralegal provides assistance with part, but not all, of a legal matter. The Law Society has referred to Limited Scope Retainers as filling a void and created to assist as an " ... affordable option for people who don’t qualify for legal aid, can’t afford a lawyer for their entire matter, or might otherwise choose to represent themselves."
An example of a limited scope retainer may be beneficial when you have your own internal legal team that has qualified and commenced claim but do not have the resources to attend settlement conferences, motions, trials or enforcement proceedings.
Contingency Retainer agreements are often provided for creditors, collection agencies, or lawyer referrals, to ULS. The retainer is built around the intricacies, complexity, expense, risk, and anticipated recovery, within the file being assigned. ULS may occasionally provide services in hybrid format where the fee is based on litigation success as a contingency but claim associated costs are paid up-front or as the expense occur.
United Legal Services provides a suite of competitive hourly services in litigation support and Small Claims Court litigation. Your hourly rate will be determined during our initial screen consultation and subsequent retainer meeting. The hourly rate is typically a fixed cost-plus file related expenses (disbursements) arrangement.
