In general we invoice our fee referring to the necessary hours required for the assistance and also determined by the outcome of the assistance and with reference to the importance of the case for the client and the assets involved and with reference to the whether the case is comprehensive and or complicated.
Private consumers must be informed about how the fee in individual cases is determined and calculated. Other clients can request for a preliminary assessment of the necessary fondant required for the assistance or a more detailed information about the criteria, which will determine the fee which eventually will be invoiced. These initial assessments would be regarded as general guidelines due to the fact that legal problems and cases often develop differently than originally expected.
We invoice our clients every month, every three month or when the case is finalized, unless other specific agreement is reached with the specific law firm. VAT is added the invoice in accordance with Danish VAT regulations.
The conditions of payment can be seen on the invoice. In case of delayed payment interest will be added in accordance with the Danish Law of Interest and reminder fees will likewise be added.
