The fees are calculated on the basis of the complexity of the case, the time required for processing and the personal situation of the client. The fees can be determined as follows:

  • Flat rate Fee

    The attorney charges his client a lump sum for all the work he must perform and no extra fees can intervene without the consent of the client.

  • Hourly Fee

    Depending on the case, an hourly fee may be charged. The client is informed beforehand of the hourly rate which is adjusted depending on multiple criteria. In this event, a summary note detailing every aspect of the case is drafted.

  • Performance fee

    Depending on the case, a complementary performance fee may be added to the flate rate or hourly fees. The rate is discussed and agreed upon beforehand. It will be due when the conditions are met, usually when a verdict is rendered by a Court.

  • Fee agreement

    For perfect client information and transparency throughout the process, the attorney and the client draft an Agreement that clarifies the entrusted tasks as well as the fees to be applied.
