New clients are received at the Firm for a first meeting which enables them to meet the lawyer or lawyers who will be in charge of their affairs, introduce themselves and to define their needs, problems, and the type of services they expect.

This first meeting subsequently makes it possible to define fees in conjunction with the client, based on the files entrusted, the type of dispute, and the difficulty of the case.

A fees agreement will then be drawn up and concluded between the lawyer and the client, which sets out the principles governing the payment of fees.

In addition to the provision which must be paid by the client at the outset, calls for provisions may be issued periodically, depending on the services carried out and the status of the case.

Fees may be calculated according to three methods:

1. Time spent

The time spent in connection with a given service, the lawyer being required to inform the client of his hourly rate and that of the other persons involved in the file (partners, associates).

The client may at any time request a detailed statement of time spent and of services rendered.

2. Fixed price

Under this arrangement, the lawyer charges his client a lump sum for all services which he must provide. This sum may not be exceeded without the client's consent.

3. Supplementary success fee

The lawyer's remuneration for his services may be increased by a supplementary "success" fee. The definition of "success" must be clearly set out when the contract is signed. This success fee is based on the sums obtained by the client or the savings made thanks to the lawyer's services.

However, by law, the total fees of a file may not depend solely on a successful outcome.

The client also bears the expenses incurred by the lawyer in connection with the file (travelling expenses, accommodation, procedural costs, etc.).
