Unless otherwise agreed, our fees follow the Lawyers' Compensation Act, which as a rule determines the amount of the fee according to the value of the issue.
For any consultation out of court and in case the fees for representation according of the Lawyers' Compensation Act are not adequate, we will agree a fee with you. We usually charge a fee of 200 € to 300 € plus VAT per hour. The exact amount will depend on the (economic) importance and on the complexity of the matter. We offer an initial consultation at a flat rate of 190 € plus VAT.
In cases of need we will also act in the framework of consultative and legal aid for our clients. You have to apply yourself to the competent regional court for a consulting aid certificate prior to the consultation and have to bring your own contribution of 15 € with you for the consultation. We will help you with your application for legal aid.
If you have a legal protection insurance we will, if you wish, inquire about the coverage in your case and, if appropiate, settle the bill directly with them. If you want to be sure about whether and to which extent your costs are covered ask your legal protection insurance for a coverage note.
