The lawyer fees are freely set in accordance with the provisions of Law No. 1130 of December 31, 1991, and Decree No. 11971 of November 27, 1991, and Decree No. 790 of July 12, 2005.

Fees calculation

Time-based fees

The lawyers inform their clients of the hourly rate they propose to apply if they choose the time-based method. They also provide an estimate of the time likely to be devoted to studying and processing the case. This rate may vary within the same law firm depending on the cases being handled. A higher hourly rate may be agreed upon for cases that warrant it.

Fixed fee

The lawyers and their clients agree on fixed and final fees.
The services covered by these fees must be precisely specified.

Contingency fees

The lawyers may agree with their client on the establishment of additional fees based on results, which must be expressly stipulated in a prior agreement concluded between the lawyers and their client. However, such an agreement must also provide for primary fees for services.

In the context of partial legal aid and fees based on results, the requirement for a fee agreement is strictly defined by law.
