Basis for the fee calculation are the appropriate valid lawyer tariff as well as the autonomous fee guidelines
("Autonome Honorarrichtlinien"). The amount thereby depends on the value of the matter (assessment basis) as well as the achieved performance.

Furthermore a possibility of free fee agreement exists, which is not affected by the tariff. The fee can also be
calculated by hours, whereby the fee can be dependent on the achieved performance.

During civil processes the underlying party is (on principle) responsible to compensate for all expenses of the defence caused by the proceedings and the prosecution according to the lawyer tariff.

For criminal matters, the autonomous fee guidelines apply, which likewise are calculated according to
expenditure and duration of the procedure.
