Thank you for your answer. My relative and friends are willing to give me the fully authrization to lead such a joint group of engineers and lawyers. They are more willing to give a percentage.
If I let a law firm to take the attonery, I signed a contract with the firm to provide consulting service. Or the law firm hire me. I want to my work to be paid by a portion of the potential settlement. It is like a saleman. Genelly, the saleman is paid by a percentage of sale he made. Is that reasonable? Thanks.
