NO BAD SURPRISES
In general, Ad Fontes’ fees are calculated according to the time spent, using an agreed hourly rate. Depending on the matter, a fixed fee or a contingency fee may also be discussed.
The choice of the billing method that best suits your situation depends in particular on the nature of the matter: if it is a matter of preparing general terms and conditions or a framework agreement, for example, Ad Fontes may propose a fixed fee. If it is a matter of defending you or a company in the context of complex and unpredictable proceedings, you will usually be charged on the basis of the time spent, but this will be estimated in advance. Either way, do not hesitate to speak frankly with your lawyer about fees and ask for a non-binding estimate.
Ad Fontes lawyers and their clients systematically sign a fee agreement before commencing work on a matter. While working on a file, Ad Fontes, as your law firm, guarantees a transparent insight into the lawyers’ time recording and the fees incurred at all times. If the originally agreed budget is reached before the matter is completed, the lawyers of Ad Fontes inform their clients in advance so that an adjustment of the budget or mission can be made if necessary.
