Fee and billing
The services are generally invoiced on the basis of an agreed fee according to time expenditure. The hourly rate depends on the value of the interest, the complexity of the case and the experience or specialization . The fee is always subject to VAT (7.7% VAT).
As a rule, an advance payment is required. The final invoice will be provided after the end of the mandate. For long-term and particularly complex cases, periodic partial billing may take place. The law firm will be happy to discuss such preferences with you.
For companies and private individuals with recurring needs for advice, it is possible to obtain legal services for an agreed monthly or annual flat rate.
Legal expenses insurance
If your legal expenses insurance includes the free choice of lawyer and covers the legal dispute, there is at the most the possibility of financing the legal dispute by the legal expenses insurance. In this case, a written cost approval obtained in good time from the legal expenses insurance helps to clarify the question of financing.
Free legal aid
In case of having insufficient financial resources for litigation and attorney's fees, the law firm will be pleased to examine the possibility of petitioning for legal aid at the competent court. The prerequisite for this is being impecunious and that the requested court does not consider the request to be legally hopeless. In such case, the court and attorney fees are initially paid out of the court cashier.
