Remuneration for legal services

A contractual fee is the most frequent method of negotiation of the remuneration. It is determined individually by agreement, depending on the legal and time demands of the relevant legal service. The hourly rate usually fluctuates between 2.000 and 4.500 CZK per hour. In case that there is no contractual renumeration agreed, a non-contractual fee can be used. Determination of the non-contractual fee is governed by The Decree of Ministry of Justice No. 177/1996 Coll., on enumeration and Reimbursement of Solicitors for the provision of Legal Services (Solicitor’s Tariff).
