Hjort makes every effort to ensure that its services are competitively priced. On the whole, our fees are based on the actual amount of time involved, although this may vary depending on the nature and complexity of the work. In simple and straightforward cases, and upon request, clients may be quoted a fixed price in advance.
The firm's lawyers are subject to the Norwegian Bar Association's Code of Conduct and in consumer matters we are bound by the Norwegian Competition Authority's regulation governing the disclosure of the cost of services. This means that, in connection with the start-up of a new case, the client will be notified of the applicable hourly rates, the way in which the fee will be calculated, as well as an outline of our billing procedures. If the client so wishes, we can provide continuous information about costs as and when they are incurred.
Hjort does not work on a “no-cure-no-pay” basis, and the rules of the Norwegian Bar Association preclude us from fixing our fee solely as a percentage of the amount in dispute or any financial settlement resulting from the case.
