Fees - Ombudsman
Like many law firms in Paris, our fees are as a rule calculated on the basis of time spent on the dossier entrusted to us.
The hourly fee for each party intervening on a file varies depending on the type of service and the complexity of the dossier.
Pursuant to Article 10 of Act No. 71-1130 of 31 December 1971 on the reform of certain judicial and legal professions, as amended by Law No. 2015-990 of 6 August 2015, Art. 51 (V), the fees for postulation, consultation, assistance, advice, drafting of private legal acts and pleadings shall be determined in agreement with the client.
Except in the event of an emergency or force majeure or when acting as total legal aid or in the third part of Law No 91-647 of 10 July 1991 on legal aid, the lawyer shall enter into a written agreement with its client in the form of a fee agreement specifying, in particular, the amount or method of determining the fees for foreseeable due diligence and the various fees and disbursements envisaged.
To avoid any ambiguity, the issue of fees is clearly explained during the first contact and formalized in a fee agreement.
Pursuant to Article 152-1 of the French Consumer Code, the consumer ombudsman for lawyers may be referred in the event of a dispute:
