Practice charges


Unless agreed otherwise, the services provided by Rabotlaw are charged per minute, based on the following hourly rates (index 2013):

  • An hourly rate will be agreed beforehand; this can vary between €121,00 per hour and €242,00 per hour (between €100,00 per hour and €200,00 per hour excl. VAT) and depends on a series of factors.

At Rabotlaw, all services are charged by the minute (hourly rate divided by 60), so that the client only pays for the time that has actually been worked. Our hourly rates are indexed annually.


Rabotlaw makes every attempt to limit its office overheads by making intensive use of IT applications.
