Firm Fee % calculation in the Settlement Tab of the Damages layout.
When you enter a Firm Fee % (depending on the Firm Fee Type selection), Smokeball will calculate the amount of firm fees into the “Less Firm Fees” field.
If the Firm Fee Type = “Percentage of gross settlement”
then “Less Firm Fees” = Settlement Amount * Firm Fee %
If the Firm Fee Type = “Percentage after firm costs”
then “Less Firm Fees” = (“Settlement Amount” – “Less Firm Costs”) * “Firm Fee %”
If the Firm Fee Type = “Manual entry” Then “Less Firm Fees” is not calculated and is open for manual entry of fees.
Ability to add notes in the Negotiations section
In the Settlement tab – Negotiations section, a new feature has been added to allow you to enter notes for each negotiation.
By click on the Notes icon, a Negotiation Notes window will appear. You may enter notes for each negotiations line item. After you enter a note, the Notes icon will change to a red/orange color.
Ability to switch to other tab screens from the Settlement Tab
In the Settlement tab, you can click on the highlighted items and will be redirected to that tab. For example, if you click on “Earnings Loss” on the Settlement tab, you will be directed to the “Earnings Loss” tab.
