Litigation Cost Management Projects


LCM assists clients in a broad range of cases and situations relating to legal fees. Projects have included:


Fee analysis

LCM has been retained to analyze the legal fees and expenses in various types of cases, such as common fund fee applications, fee-shifting cases, insurance bad faith and coverage cases, and disputes between law firms and their clients. LCM's role has generally been to assess the appropriateness and reasonableness of the fees and expenses being sought, provide a written analysis and opinion, and, where appropriate, expert witness testimony. LCM works both with parties seeking and opposing fees.
