Pursuant to article 10 of the 31st December 1917 Law: "fees are determined according to the customs, the client’s situation, the difficulty of the case, the costs incurred by the lawyer, the lawyer's reputation and diligence".

Within that framework, EUROPA AVOCATS has made the commitment to the greatest transparency regarding the billing of the service delivered to its clients. This commitment includes setting out as soon as the first meeting the rules applicable to fees that will be put down in a written agreement.

The proposed fees, depending on the nature of the matter, can provide for a fixed fee for a determined mission, or an hourly rate.

With the client's agreement a performance fee that will partly depend on the outcome of the matter may be applied and will imply a lesser fixed fee.

Moreover, should you have legal expense insurance we invite you to inform you insurance company promptly.

In any case, EUROPA AVOCAT proceeds to foreseeable and transparent billing setting out all its diligence, costs and expenses.
