Class Actions Fees

fees icon While fee arrangements may vary with specific cases, Class Members usually don't have to pay any fees to Class Action lawyers to handle their lawsuit. Class Action lawyers are usually paid a percentage of the award if they win, and nothing if they lose.

Also, Class Action lawyers usually pay for all of the up front disbursement costs, such as expert reports, advertising costs, and mailing and administration costs; in larger Class Actions, this can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Fee arrangements must be approved by the Court.
