How much does a Flat Fee retainer cost?
Flat fees vary from case to case. For pre-litigation employment cases, the flat rate for negotiations that don’t involve filing an administrative case (with the EEOC, for instance) the flat rate is $9,000 (This rate is similar to the hourly retainer, which is $6,000. The extra $3,000 in this case is a “success fee” which you only pay if we negotiate some kind of settlement agreement). For cases that involve filing with the EEOC, the flat rate is $15,950.
On occasion, we enter flat fee arrangements for cases that involve filing a lawsuit. The firm also offers these rates on a case-by-case basis.
