Should you have in mind a project not listed above, your company may opt for an hourly rate of 300 RON/hour and a flat fee to be decided separately per project, based on the degree of complexity and the estimated workload.
Last, but surely, not least, we offer you the option of establishing a retainer agreement and fee relationship, which can be extremely advantageous for your company. The fee will include a minimum number of consultancy hours to be decided based on the company’s needs, while at the same time creating an important discount to the hourly rate mentioned above.
For example, for a 10 hour minimum (which, from my experience, proved to be enough for a medium-sized company) the retainer fee would be 300 EURO. The hours not spent in one month are rolled-over into the next period (without limitation). Should the total hours surpass the minimum contracted hours, the extra hours shall be paid at the same discounted fee. Also, the extra hours can be compensated with the not-spent hours (in the previous months or the next 3 months following the carrying performance of extra hours).
In time, we have realized that the retainer is much more financially advantageous than paying the fines applied by the civil servants during checks or the bribes they might solicit in order not to fine you. We also see it as a means to improve the Romanian business environment, to make it less prone to corruption. By using the services of a lawyer, you get to know the law, i.e. both your rights and obligations, which means you will be prepared for any checks from the public authorities; and second, the civil servants will know right from the start that they will not get the bribe they might be after and will leave you alone. In 2015 we’ve seen it with our own eyes that CORRUPTION KILLS (the fire in Colectiv club) so we have a moral duty to the victims to fight this subversive scourge.
Please note that the retainer fee includes any of the services mentioned above (including Trade Register services), except court litigation, for which a separate fee shall be negotiated (at a discounted rate given that you are already our client). In addition to this, we will keep you informed about any amendments and new legislation pertaining to your area of interest.
In hoping that we managed to convince you to work with our firm, we reiterate the invitation to come by our office to meet us and discuss what legal services are best suited for your company.
