Fees – Law firm in AntibesThe fees of your law firm in Antibes are established in accordance with the conditions of Article 10 of Law 71-1130 of 31 December 1971, governing the profession of lawyer. In order to establish a relationship of trust, they are fixed between the client and the lawyer from the beginning of the case. These fees, as well as the costs generated by a legal proceeding, (expertise, bailiff fees, etc.) can be covered in whole or in part by a legal protection insurance contract, which can be purchased from most insurance companies. A fee agreement is thus established, in order to materialize the framework of collaboration between the law firm of your lawyer Fabien Manoury in Antibes, and his client.
PaymentYour lawyer, Fabien Manoury, receives fair compensation for the services he provides, as well as compensation from the work of an intervenor. In order to ensure the transparency of the billing of the services he has performed, and those of the various stakeholders on the case, the remuneration of each of them must be individualized and then brought to the attention of the client. The lawyer therefore undertakes to inform you about the method of calculation of the fees that will be practiced, and the costs claimed by his office, as soon as contact is made.
Other criteria also allow you to evaluate your lawyer’s fees in Antibes: the reputation of the law firm, its expertise and its specialization, if any. Finally, the client’s financial situation may also be taken into consideration.
Lawyer’s feesThe fees are fixed and negotiated between the lawyer and his client from the beginning of the procedure.
Different pricing models can be established:
Fees invoiced on a time-spent basis
When charging for time spent, the actual time spent studying and processing a file is taken into account. Once the interventions are completed, the number of hours worked is multiplied by the hourly rate previously fixed with his client according to the fee agreement. The result of this calculation will be the amount of the lawyer’s fees.
La rétribution forfaitaire est un système de rémunération privilégié dans le cadre d’une affaire ponctuelle. Définitif et non négociable, le coût des prestations couvre toutes les interventions nécessaires au traitement du dossier, jusqu’à sa clôture définitive, tel que le définit la convention d’honoraire. Flat-rate fee is a system of preferential remuneration in the context of a specific case. Final and non-negotiable, the cost of the services covers all the actions necessary to process the file, until its closure, as defined in the fee agreement.
Fees on the result of the judicial process
The agreement of fees on the result corresponds to a supplement of the remuneration to the time spent or to the flat rate. Thus, it is an agreed-upon compensation based on the success of a judicial process. The amount corresponding to this second instalment of fees is calculated as a percentage of the gains acquired as a result of the court decision.
Legal aidYour lawyer Fabien Manoury may, in certain hypotheses and exceptionally, be able to intervene under legal aid depending on the procedure to be initiated and the situation of the litigants.
Challenging lawyers' feesThe lawyer’s fees may be challenged by the client. The latter must therefore initiate proceedings to challenge the fees by sending a letter of complaint to the lawyer. Without a favourable response from the complainant, the mediator of the legal profession or the President of the Bar to which the lawyer belongs may be contacted by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt (and supporting documents). The mediator asks for the confrontation between the two parties, and if the mediation succeeds, the dispute ends. In case of disagreement it is the President of the Bar Association, having exclusive jurisdiction in the matter, who will assess and fix the amount of the lawyer’s fees.
