How Are Attorneys Paid in Class Actions?
Generally speaking, attorneys handling class action cases are paid from the overall judgment secured against a defendant. This collective lump sum of money is called the “common fund,” and is split between the lawyers handling the case and the plaintiffs they represented. However, Feazell & Tighe has often been successful at getting defendants to pay attorneys’ fees on top of (and not out of) the common fund. The attorney fees in these cases are subject to court overview.
