Fees

Table of Fees:

This office operates on the basis of the combination of two fee schemes: Hourly Charge and Retainer/Contingent Fee. When it comes to litigation, the client may continue with the Hourly Charge scheme or change over to Retainer/Contingent Fee scheme.

Hourly Charge

Hourly Charge \10,500−\42,000* per hour
*e.g. when working in English on purely business matters

The above range of fees reflects the complexity and nature of the subject matter and the financial condition of the client. Legal counselling fees fall under this scheme. However, where the counselling leads to litigation or negotiations and the Retainer/Contingent Fee scheme is opted for, the legal counselling fees due may be counted wholly or partly in the retainer.

Retainer/Contingent Fee Schedule

◆Retainer (as against the amount at stake given in the left column)

Up to \3 million \8% x 1.05
From \3 million up to \30 million \(5%+90,000) x 1.05
From \30 million up to \300 million \(3%+690,000) x 1.05
Over \300 million \(2%+3690,000) x 1.05

◆Contingent Fee (as against the amount recovered given in the left column)

Up to \3 million \16% x 1.05
From \3 million up to \30 million \(10%+180,000) x 1.05
From \30 million up to \300 million \(6%+1380,000) x 1.05
Over \300 million \(4%+7380,000) x 1.05

NB:
a) Above fees are inclusive of Consumption Tax due.
b) Above fees are for litigation. Fees are lower for negotiations.
c) Where the subject matter of the litigation is incomputable, the amount at stake is deemed in principle to be \8 million.

The above fees are indicative only, and may be increased or reduced, due consideration given to the complexity of the subject matter and the financial condition of the client.

Financially disadvantaged?

Legal aid may be applied for, both for legal couselling and litigation/negotiations. Where such aid is available, counselling is free, and no payment is required for at the time of initiation of litigation/negotiations. Legal aid also covers interpretation/translation costs to an extent.
This office will do applications for legal aid on your behalf.
