|I find it particularly important that my fee
structure is clear for the client. |
In case of employers,
I charge on an hourly basis.
order for my clients not to be reluctant with "quick
questions", I am keeping my time in one-minute units. Upon
request, I will provide you with a fee
estimate before I start. You may expect a specialized
lawyer who knows his practice and does not need
to conduct extensive research for everyday questions. Consequently, you
will be surprised how reasonable my invoices
A compensation agreement for employers is available under downloads.
In case of employees,
I regulary charge fees pursuant to the statutory
fee table. You will be able to calculate the approximate fees by
following link. In case of an
unfair dismissal lawsuit, please enter your quarterly income under
"value of the matter in dispute" (Gegenstandswert).
If you have legal fees insurance, this fee structure is likely
to be accepted by your insurance. If you only need legal advice, the
statutory fee table does not provide for standard fees due to a
change of the law implemented on July 1, 2006. In such case, I
regularly suggest a compensation agreement which will be accepted by
your legal fees insurance.
