Retainers and Hourly Rates

Retainers are a sum of money clients pay before the start of work. (Note: A typical retainer for a musician/musical group is $1,500 and a production company is $2,000.) The firm will hold such retainer in trust for the client and subtract the Firm’s hourly fees and costs from such retainer fee. Legal research and contract negotiation are generally billed at the Firm’s hourly rate.
