Attorneys’ fees are governed by an implementing decree of the Ministry of Justice of the Slovak Republic No. 655/2004 Coll. on attorneys’ fees and compensation for the provision of legal services (thereinafter „Decree“).
In our offices we always determine fees individually with our clients, while fees depend on the complexity of the legal issue and the quantity of needed legal actions. Attorneys’ fee can be therefore determined by agreement between the lawyer and his client as a contract fee or as a tariff fee under the Decree.
In addition to the fee, attorney is entitled to reimbursement of expenses efficiently spent in connection with provided legal services, in particular, court fees and other fees, travel expenses and telecommunications expenses, expenses for expert fees, translator fees, expenses for copies of documents and reimbursement for loss of time.
