You are welcome to ask us about the potential amount of our fee before booking an appointment or placing an order. Unless otherwise agreed for out-of-court matters, we charge our fees in accordance with the regular legal model.
According to this legal model, which is binding on the legal profession, fees must be calculated and invoiced for each specific individual case on the basis of the facts relating to the fees. In civil law, the fees of the attorneys are mainly
calculated according to the so-called “value of the subject matter”. This is based on the principle that the fee is based partly on the forecasted (not the actual) workload and partly on the liability risk of the lawyer.
The Federal Chamber of Attorneys offers further information on this matter (also on the calculation of the fee amount).
For reasons of professional ethics and competition law, we are not allowed to provide legal advice in individual cases without a mandate and subsequent fee calculation.
In out-of-court proceedings, we agree upon an hourly fee or a flat fee.
In extrajudicial consulting matters, we agree upon an hourly fee or a lump-sum fee, depending on the expenditure, in order to increase the transparency of the incurred costs for our clients.
Long-term/Permanent mandates are frequent in our law firm; for this purpose we offer alternative remuneration methods, such as monthly or annual lump sums.
