Negotiating the fee for provision of legal services, the law office proceeds in compliance with the decree No. 177/1996 Coll. of the Ministry of Justice, attorneyship fee tariff, as amended.
The fee for provision of legal services is in most cases set on the basis of mutual agreement between the attorney and the client.
The fee, calculated mainly on the basis of the hourly rate, is determined in the first place by the tariff value and by the complexity of the matter.
It is also possible to agree upon a flat fee, upon a fee for each specific act of legal service or upon a success fee (a contingency fee) and upon a con-contractual fee for provision of legal services in accordance with the decree No. 177/1996 Coll. of the Ministry of Justice, non-contractual fees, as amended.
In addition to each fee, in accordance with the attorneyship fee tariff, the law office charges a compensation for out-of-pocket expenses purposefully incurred in connection with provision of the legal service, including especially court fees and other fees, travelling expenses, postal charges, telecommunication fees, fees for expert opinions and expert comments, translations, copies and photocopies. The law office charges these out-of-pocket expenses if they really arise only.
