What to Expect About Small Business Law and Litigation


Attorneys who agree to represent individuals with small business issues will typically bill clients on an hourly basis or on a fixed-fee basis for some services.


Attorneys charge for expenses incurred on behalf of clients. These expenses typically include copying charges, long-distance phone charges, postage, faxes and filing fees, and other expenses associated with handling your case.


Attorneys are required to provide written fee agreements. Fee agreements clarify what you will be charged for, when you are expected to pay your invoices, and what you should do if you have a concern about fees.
