Our office also invoices, when applicable, the cost of any advanced payments that it may undertake on behalf of its clients (bailiffs’ fees, registrars, hearing fees, etc…) in addition to the fixed fees.
As far as these expenses (that are qualified as legal costs) are concerned, they are generally uncured to the party which loses the case in order that they can be invoiced to the adversary and not to the client. The customer can recover these expenses from the adversary or directly from the Court.
In the event of appeal, the costs incurred by first instance proceedings are invoiced to the client who will recover them, in that event, from the adversary if they are incurred upon him by the Appeals’ Court.
The remuneration of a lawyer is determined taking into account the following elements:
The firm invoices its fees on the basis of time spent on a case which, if required, are adjusted upwards or downwards according to the rules indicated above in addition to an adjustment according to the results obtained, always in accordance with the previous agreement.
Fees based on the time spent
The lawyers’ hourly fees are as follows: 220 € HT. All the time passed on a case is invoiced on this basis, this includes travel time and waiting time at audiences and time passed on the telephone.
When the outcome of an intervention by a Lawyer leads to a quantifiable result, a contingency fee is invoiced in addition to fees for the time passed on a case.
A fees agreement may be signed between the client and the Lawyer in which it is specified if a contingency fee has been agreed upon or not, along with the procedure defining the valuation of this complementary fee, if applicable.
One or more complementary retainers may be demanded as a case advances according to fees, expenses and other costs engaged.
At the end of a case, a final invoice is established to complete the dossier. This includes, if applicable, a contingency fee for results obtained and also takes into account the retainers already paid, which will be deducted and appear in this invoice.
Once a dossier has been opened, or during the course of proceedings, a fee agreement may be determined which defines in advance the tariffs to be applied according to interventions carried out by the practice.
For certain types of dossier, a fee agreement can be determined (especially in the case of regular advisory meetings) which can be assimilated to a form of subscription.
