Our rates

Our rates

During the first introductory meeting, we will decide on the strategy to be followed and discuss our rates. We will, of course provide, an estimate of the costs that is as accurate as possible. However, as the actual costs will depend on a number of external factors, this can only be an estimate.

Monthly invoices will be sent for work carried out and the statement of the costs will consist of the following components: the fee, disbursements, office costs and VAT.

The fee is the amount charged by the lawyer for the hours spent on your case. The disbursements are indirect costs, such as court registry fees, bailiffs’ costs and travel and subsistence expenses. Office costs are added to the fee to cover overheads. VAT is also added to the total amount invoiced.

Our lawyers charge reasonable fees due to a relatively low hourly rate combined with an efficient way of working.

The hourly rates depend on the experience of the lawyer and the nature, importance and urgency of the case.

It is customary to request payment of an advance (a retainer), before we begin work. The size of this advance is based on the estimated cost of the legal assistance to be provided during the initial period. This advance will be deducted from the final statement of costs and is retained as collateral until the case is finished.
