A. HOURLY FEE SYSTEM
This is the most common method by which our office charges fees to clients. Under this system we charge clients for the actual time spent by our lawyers that are assigned to the case. Currently the hourly charges of our lawyers are:
|Associates||Ranging from IDR 2,000,000 – IDR 2,500,000 per hour depending on Seniority|
By this method, we will charge clients monthly in arrear (except that for new clients, we normally require a deposit, the amount of which would depend on the case).
B. PROJECT FEE SYSTEM
This system would be beneficial to the client for transactions that are normally standard and can be readily quantifiable. In this system we would quote a lump sum fee (IDR 100,000,000 – 1,000,000,000) for the whole project with details of the scope of works covered. Any work beyond the scope of work or time beyond a capped limit would be charged separately. In order to set on appropriate lump sum fee, we would firstly have to know the scope of work required by the client.
C. RETAINER FEE SYSTEM
In this system the client pays us a fixed retainer monthly/annually, which will allow the client to utilize our services up to a pre-set time limit during the retainer period. Any time beyond the set limit will be charged additionally based on the applicable hourly fees of the lawyers handling the case (however with a pre-agreed discount). This system will provide the client with substantial savings if we are utilized effectively.
More details for of the retainer arrangement will be set forth in the retainer agreement.
Please note that all the fee systems above require the client to pay out-of- pocket expenses (e.g. traveling, long distance calls, photocopies, faxes, etc.).
We believe our experience and expertise in this area of law will support each client’s objectives of achieving the best possible outcome, whether it be precautionary of any business interruption or seeking first step of remedies for avoiding litigation case.
