"Strong business acumen and provides a tailor-made service while billing transparently"World Trademark Review, 2016

The firm is aware of the vital importance of cost control and understands clients' essential need to regularly check the activities carried out as well as the related costs. Trevisan & Cuonzo provides accurate estimates of the expected costs and a fair indication of the basic timeline for completion of specific stages of an operation.

The firm is flexible and willing to consider dynamic and negotiable fee structures as well as alternative ways of charging fees. These include fixed fees, fees subject to a fee limit, fees based on the value of a transaction, retainer fees or fees calculated by reference to hourly rates.

Unless another fee structure has been specified, the firm will charge fees with reference to the amount of time spent by individuals on client  work, or alternatively at an hourly rate, which is adjustable according to the urgency, complexity and value of the matter at hand. However the firm is always pleased to discuss alternative fee structure arrangements as well as operating a preferred billing system. Billing in US dollar and/or pounds sterling is also available on request.

To keep clients informed of legal expenses incurred as the matter proceeds, Trevisan & Cuonzo issues interim invoices at 1 to 3 monthly intervals unless instructed otherwise. Detailed time sheets indicating the lawyer, activity and time spent are always provided.

Further information on legal fees are available on request. Please contact the accounts department by email (accounting@trevisancuonzo.com) or by phone (+39 02 8646 3313).
