Our billing method is transparent and adapted to our added value
In principle, we invoice on the basis of time spent. For certain services, in particular those related to our dispute prevention activities, we can offer you a fixed fee.
Our hourly rate depends on the complexity of the case and the importance of the interests involved, in accordance with article 11.2 of the French National Rules of Procedure of the legal profession.
We do not charge for all the hours we spend on your case : only those that reflect our actual work as lawyers are charged.
Moreover, we spend a certain number of hours studying new avenues, ensuring the accuracy of our research, as well as fine-tuning the drafts of our arguments. These are inherent to the identity of our firm ; the majority of them are not charged to you.
In addition to our hourly fee, we generally charge a contingency fee, which is a percentage of the amount recovered or saved, ranging from 3% to 8%.
When we advance them, travel, translation and court costs (bailiff, court clerk, etc.) are charged to you without any margin.
Each invoice details the nature of the services provided. Invoices are issued at regular intervals so that you can keep track of them.
We ask you to pay a retainer fee when opening your file, in accordance with article 11.6 of the French National Rules of Procedure of the legal profession.
To facilitate payments from China, we accept UnionPay, Alipay and Wechat transfers.
