Our fees

The fees are free and fixed in agreement with the client during the first meeting, according to various criteria, in particular the difficulty of the case, the urgency of the matter, the time that will have to be devoted to it, the costs that will have to be exposed. It is important to bear in mind that it is often difficult to determine in advance what the expenditures of a case will be.

The different ways of establishing fees:

  • Time spent: the hourly rate is set at 37,100 F CFP (including VAT) depending on the difficulty, the importance of the issue or the urgency;
  • Fixed fee: agreed upon remuneration, particularly suitable for simple and routine procedures or for a well-defined service; thus the client knows in advance the cost of the intervention of the lawyer;
  • Fees based on an assistance agreement: the firm and the client sign an agreement for a fixed period (generally for one year), determining the scope and modalities of the lawyer intervention; the client can then consult his counsel whenever he needs to, within the limits provided for in the agreement, while allowing him to lower the cost of the lawyer’s services over the agreed period;
  • Performance Fee: the “quota litis” pact, that is to say the agreement by which a lawyer and his client agree that the fees would only be due in the event that the case is won and depending on the result obtained, is prohibited in the French legal system and in New-Caledonia. It is, however, possible to agree on an additional result fee, flat-rate or proportional to the result obtained: gain of money or savings made, following the intervention of the lawyer.
