Fees

In accordance with ethical standards, in particular the regulations of the Paris Bar, our firm determines legal fees based on established practices, taking into account various factors such as the complexity of the case, the expenses incurred by the lawyer, or the resources required to manage the case.  

Before the first meeting, fee arrangements are discussed and then confirmed in writing.  Of course, we do not charge fees before they are explicitly agreed upon.  The fees for the first meeting are always deducted from subsequent invoices in the case we continue working together. 

Our lawyers are dedicated to providing detailed explanations and we encourage our clients to ask questions, fostering a strong, trust-based lawyer-client relationship.

Every customer is unique, and so should be each solution.
