Performance based fee arrangements


Arcus will commit significant resources to each client engagement and we ask our clients to understand and recognize the effort and resources that go into a successful merger or deal. substantial resources to the clients and projects we select. We do not charge individual laterals. The acquiring firm pays all the fees.  We do charge all candidates a reasonable one-time fee who engage Arcus as a merger advisor. For law firm merger candidates, the merged candidate and acquiring merger partner/firm that would form the combined firm would pay the merger consulting fees.


All merger candidates take advantage of our lower caps on fees compared to normal arrangements found in the industry. Our fees are also tied to actual performance of the combined firm by spreading the advisory fee across twelve months post merger. Our standard Fee Agreement consists of a retainer and contingency fee arrangement in which all container fees are 100% refundable if the merger fails. Clients are also offered fixed fee and hourly fee arrangements when working on specific projects or a limited basis.
