The article 10 of the law of December 31st, 1971 establishes the principle of freedom in the fixation of the fees of lawyers:

" The fees of postulation, of consultation, assistance, council, drafting of private legal documents and plea are fixed in agreement with the customer. "

According to the law, the fixation of the fees takes into account several parameters: the time required for the analysis and the treatment of the case, the difficulty of the case, the degree of technical difficulty, the importance of the interests in cause, the moral implications and the pecuniary advantages got for the client, the financial resources of the client, the diligences and the fame of the lawyer.
