The prices for services provided to our clients are set in accordance with Act No. 85/1996 Coll., On Advocacy, as amended, and in accordance with the provisions of Sections 6 to 12 of the Decree of the Ministry of Justice No. 177/1996 Coll., Lawyer's Tariff, as amended ( hereinafter referred to as the "lawyer's tariff").
When taking over a client's case, we inform the client in advance about the expected scope of work and provide an estimate of the total costs and cash expenses, which will have to be incurred by the client to fully resolve the matter. Furthermore, we also require a deposit for the provision of our legal services.
For the services of a DKS LEGAL lawyer we most frequently use an hourly contractual fee. This is determined by the number of hours that the lawyer actually spends processing a specific client´s request. Time remuneration appears to be an objective way of remunerating a lawyer, taking into account the time actually worked. The hourly contractual fee for the legal services of DKS LEGAL ranges from CZK 2,000 to 6,000 (excluding VAT), while the rate is agreed on taking into account the specifics of a case at hand and the client's requirements.
The flat-rate contractual remuneration is set at a fixed amount for the provision of legal services in one specific or more matters, or for the provision of legal services for a certain period of time. It is especially suitable for legal entities to which legal services are regularly provided in a similar extent, thus a monthly flat fee is agreed for continuously provided legal services.
The non-contractual fee, calculated according to the lawyer's tariff, is awarded to DKS LEGAL in the event that we do not come to an agreement with the client on the contractual fee for the provided legal services. In accordance with the non-contractual rate, remuneration is due for each individual act of the provided legal services.
