Services and pricing
I primarily handle civil, criminal and administrative cases for private clients. The majority of the civil cases concern inheritance law (property division, as well as estates). I also have notable experience in European Arrest Warrant and extradition cases.
I am an expert in procedural law (title of docent at University of Helsinki) and I am available if there is need for a legal opinion on that field.
Cases concerning immigration and child custody does not belong to my practice any more.
Hourly fees (includes. VAT 24%)
|Charge for routine matters||297,60 € / h|
|Charge for special expertise, tasks using other than Finnish language, urgent measures etc||310 – 372 € / h|
Prices include value added tax 24 %. Please note that clients who are resident outside of the EU are not liable for VAT.
A fee is not charged for the first phone consultation or preliminary email exchange if they do not lead to a assignment.
Legal expenses insurance usually covers legal expenses for private persons and companies in civil matters and in criminal cases for the complainant. If one does not have a legal expenses insurance, it is also often possible to receive public legal aid in court matters, in which case our fee is either partially or completely paid for by the state. However I handle public legal aid cases only to a limited extent and only in the Helsinki metropolitan area.
The invoicing is based on the time used on an assignment. For individual telephone conferences, emails and other small tasks I charge a minimum of 12 minutes (0.2 hours).
The costs that authorities collect and other expenses are invoiced separately. For example for travel expenses I invoice 0.67 €/km and for large amounts of printing and photo-copying I invoice 0.37 €/ black and white page.
