B. FEES  

3 calculation methods can be applied for the fees estimate:

- Payment per hour: an amount per chargeable hour for delivered services.

- Payment in accordance with the value of the case: a percentage of the interest of the case valued in money.

- Payment per performance: the amounts that in particular cases may be charged for specified cases.

Correction coefficients may be applied to any calculation method and these form an essential component for budgeting the specific fees in a case.

1. Calculation per hour 

If this calculation method is chosen, the time spent will be recorded. Chargeable hours are hours that are demonstrably worked on a particular case. Other hours that are general but necessary to be able to render a specific service relating to a file are not chargeable.

Our office applies an indicative basic amount of €120 per hour excl 21% VAT, i.e. €145.20 incl 21% VAT per hour.

A number of correction coefficients can be applied in deduction or addition in line with the importance of the case, the experience of the lawyer or other factors, such as the urgent nature of the degree of difficulty of the file.

2. Calculation in accordance with the value 

The fee is calculated by band in accordance with the following scale:

from €0 to €7,500
from €7.501 to €75,000
from €75.001 to €150,000
from €150.001 to €300,000
more than €300,000

15% (+ 21% VAT)
10% (+ 21% VAT)
8% (+ 21% VAT)
6% (+ 21% VAT)
4% (+ 21% VAT)

Correction coefficients may be applied here. A reduction of the percentage to half, for example, could be applied in specific cases, such as for the amount that is not the subject of any dispute or that is only partially disputed.

3. Calculation per performance

For certain proceedings our firm applies specific rates which are an average for those specific cases. 

C. EXPENSES


The office expenses to be charged include the following items:

1. Word processing: This post covers all office expenses and is calculated as a fixed amount over the number of pages typed at €11 excl VAT per page, which is €13.31 incl 21% VAT

2. Photocopies: €0.40 excl VAT per copy, which is €0.48 incl 21% VAT

3. Travelling expenses: €0.50 excl VAT per kilometre, which is €0.60 incl 21% VAT

4. Opening file: €50 excl VAT, which is €60.50 incl 21% VAT

5. Special office expenses: These costs include international telephone and fax conversations, flights and such like. They will be charged separately to the file for which they have been incurred at real cost. Registered post and other special dispatches are also included in these costs and may therefore be charged separately.

5. Court costs: these are estimated separately.
