ZERO - COST - RISK FOR YOU

Litigation funding and legal expenses insurance
If you have legal expenses insurance, we will take over the settlement with your insurer. Otherwise, financing through a litigation financier is possible, who will assume the costs of your legal dispute.

Remuneration according to RVG

 

In Germany, lawyers' remuneration is regulated by law in the Lawyers' Remuneration Act (Rechtsanwaltsvergütungsgesetz).

The exact remuneration is calculated according to the so-called amount in dispute.

 

Here is an example:

Your employer gives you notice of termination. You have been working for the company for about 5 years and earn 2,500.00 EUR/gross per month. We obtain a severance payment of 10,000.00 EUR for you as well as a good employer's reference.

 

Important! You can claim the lawyer's fees as income-related expenses in your tax return for any tax savings.

 

Our remuneration according to the RVG:

For out-of-court representation this is currently 818.20 EUR + 19% VAT. The amount is made up of a so-called business fee and a lump sum for expenses.

 

Should the matter require proceedings in court and we have to go to a conciliation hearing, we will have to add 1,535.39 EUR + 19% VAT. This sum is made up of a procedural fee, an appointment fee and a lump sum for expenses. However, the extrajudicial costs will be credited, so that your original amount will be reduced.

 

If a settlement is reached out of court or in court, we receive a so-called settlement fee. In our example, this amounts to EUR 614.00 + 19% VAT for a court settlement and EUR 921.00 + 19% VAT for an out-of-court settlement.

 

Of course, before you instruct us, we will inform you about the exact costs that may arise under the RVG.

Fee agreement

 

If, for example, no amount in dispute can be determined for your mandate for the time being or if a matter proves to be particularly extensive or complex, we offer you the possibility of a fee agreement.

 

Here we set an hourly rate and a number of billable hours in advance. The billing is exact and fully transparent. Should the budget be exceeded

 

For example, we will draft your general terms and conditions at an hourly rate of EUR 140.00 plus VAT and estimate 5 working hours for this. The fee here is therefore EUR 700.00.

Litigation funding and legal expenses insurance

 

These two options offer you the possibility of obtaining justice at low risk and, at best, even free of charge.

 

Litigation financiers are companies that assume all the legal costs of a legal dispute. Even those of your own lawyer. Very similar to an insurance policy. In the event that you win the legal dispute, the litigation financier receives a percentage of the successfully negotiated sum. If you lose the lawsuit, the litigation financier pays the entire costs of the lawsuit. You, on the other hand, do not have to pay anything.

 

With traditional legal expenses insurance, we first obtain a confirmation of cover. This means that we have your insurance company confirm in advance that it will cover the lawyer's fees and court costs. The settlement is also made directly with the insurer. Apart from a possible excess, you have no financial risk and do not have to worry about anything else.
