Our fees are established using methods that are both flexible and transparent, allowing us to remunerate both our work and the results obtained.
They are established on the basis of professional usage.

From the first meeting, we provide the client with all the details they request on the method of calculating our fees.

These can be established by agreement on the basis of an hourly rate.

A flat rate fee may also be charged taking into account in particular the importance or complexity of the case, the interest at stake, the urgency or the specificity of the dispute.

An additional success fee, in the event of success of the case following a trial or settlement negotiation, can also be agreed.

In certain cases, your insurer may cover all or part of your lawyer's fees. The insured then has the choice of his lawyer.

Member of an association approved by the tax administration, the MUSCHEL - METZGER association accepts as such the payment of fees by checks made out to its name or by bank card (decree no. 77-1520 of December 31, 1977).

The different forms of fee calculation

Fees for time spent

The lawyer specifies to his clients the hourly rate that they propose to apply if they choose the time spent method. He indicates to his clients the time likely to be devoted to the study and processing of the file. This rate may vary within the same firm depending on the cases handled. A higher hourly rate may be agreed in cases that justify it.

​Lump sum fees

The lawyer and his client agree on fixed and definitive fees. The procedures covered by these fees must be precisely indicated

Fees based on results

The lawyer can agree with his client to set additional performance fees which must be expressly stipulated in an agreement previously concluded between the lawyer and his client but said agreement must also provide for main fees for diligence.

In the context of partial legal aid and in that of success fees, the obligation of a fee agreement is strictly defined by law.
