Over the years, we have recovered millions of dollars for insurers while only taking selective cases, often after other firms turn them down. In the past year alone, Fields Howell attorneys returned $2 million to insurers in two cases we resolved. With our contingency fee model, we take all the risk.
Fields Howell is happy to consider subrogation cases on an individual basis, negotiating a progressive contingency fee that accurately reflects the risks associated with your case. Most subrogation firms prefer to negotiate a flat-rate across all subrogation matters they handle, and as a result, the rate charged on the cases they elect to pursue is often disproportionate to the risk, reducing insurers’ recovery. We think that approach takes advantage of our clients.
