Fees are provided for in a fees agreement provided to the client at the first appointment.
The fees, discussed prior to any work being performed, are detailed in a written fees agreement provided to the client after the first appointment.
For companies, our fees as a general rule are billed per hour. The per-hour rate (excluding VAT) varies based on the technical difficulty of the matter.
Estimated budgets for fees can be prepared, at the client’s request, based on an estimate of services to be performed. Flat fees can also be proposed for a certain volume of matters.
An itemized statement of services performed and proof of expenses and costs incurred are included with each invoice.
For individuals, in litigation or pre-litigation, we generally propose a fees agreement that includes a fixed fee and a success fee based on the amount won.
