Example for calculation

The case finished with your getting 5,000,000yen (economic value) and you already paid initial fee of 300,000yen+Tax in the beginning:

 

For 3,000,000yen economic value: initial fee 8% + contingent fee 16% (total 24%)=720,000yen

+

Rest of 2,000,000yen economic value: initial fee 5% + contingent fee 10% (total 15%)=300,000yen

=1,020,000yen

1,020,000yen +Consumption tax (if 5%)= 1,071,000yen is the total fee

1,071,000yen – 300,000yen+tax (you have already paid) = 756,000yen

 

Contingent fee 756,000yen is the amount you have to pay when the case finished.
