Outside Counsel Fee Information

 

Our office compiles information quarterly on fees and expenses paid to Special Assistant Attorneys General ("SAAGs"), outside counsel retained by the Attorney General's Office to perform legal work on behalf of the state.  SAAGs are typically retained to handle cases where the Attorney General's Office has insufficient staff attorneys to handle the caseload, cases where it would be inefficient to send staff attorneys to hearings for cases such as child support or deprivation hearings where cases are heard in all 159 counties, or in instances that involve a specialized practice area, such as admiralty law or intellectual property law, in which it is not economical to keep a specialist on staff in that practice area.

Information on fees and expenses paid to SAAGs will be updated quarterly as the information becomes available.
