Hello, I employed a law firm to defend me in a law dispute over a property breach of sale contract lawsuit filed against me. The Law firm eventually won the law suit.
Finally, the law firm, based on the complaintent request to renegotiate a settlement and my consent and approval to that, negotiated for a couple of weeks until we reached one agreeable to both parties.
Considering i have paid no less than 30k in invoices to the law firm based on an hourly rate, do i still owe the law firm a brokerage commission of any sort, or do they price their negotiation services as part of their legal services and thus only require their hourly fees?
I wanna know what's appropriate cause i plan to preserve a
good relation with law firm and am embaressed to ask them
