The Shepherd Company receives an asset recovery fee as set forth in our engagement letter after a claimant has secured an unclaimed asset. Our asset recovery fee does not include any of our costs, including attorney fees, and we do not ask for any up-front money from the claimant. Proving that a claimant is an heir or beneficiary is done at our expense.
We take all of the risk. Upon completion of the asset recovery process, the claimant’s money or asset will be delivered to the claimant’s attorney and The Shepherd Company is paid only after the money or asset is available to the claimant.
The Shepherd Company’s asset recovery fee is contingent on a successful recovery of the unclaimed asset for the claimant. If we do not successfully recover the asset for the claimant, we receive nothing, and the claimant owes us nothing.
