As members of the Norwegian Bar Association, we are required to provide clients with a written confirmation of new assignments. Assignment confirmation is given at commencement of the assignment or as soon as possible thereafter. In cases where work must start immediately, confirmation of job commencement is sent by e-mail. The business terms of the assignment are provided in the written assignment confirmation and in Lund & Co’s general terms and conditions.
Fee calculation and invoicing
As a rule, we charge our clients based on time incurred for the assignment. When determining the fee we take into account the nature of the case as well as difficulty, the values concerned, results achieved, if specific deadlines apply, as well as lawyers’ experience and expertise in the field. Hourly rates and specific conditions will be stated in the assignment confirmation. By agreement, we will in certain cases invoice work according to an agreed fixed price.
