As attorneys-at-law and notaries public, we respect the professional code of conduct applicable to our sectors. We are particularly bound by professional secret, which guarantees you absolute discretion. Our independence from third parties guarantees you the neutrality of our legal advice.
As attorneys-at-law, one of our major objectives is to defend the interests of our clients the best we can. This not only concerns proceedings but also informing our clients of the risks associated with proceedings before initiating legal action.
In the context of mandates as notary public, we are obliged to safeguard the interests of all parties to a contract and of all the clients impartially.
The fee scales are different for the mandates as attorney-at-law and notary public. Hereinafter, we inform you concerning the applicable guidelines for the calculation of our wages and fees.
For the determination of our fees, we basically respect the Bernese Decree on the attorneys' fees; however, the rate of our fees corresponds at least to the following amounts:
Marc Renggli, attorney-at-law and notary public: CHF 300.00 per hour, in the field of marital property and inheritance law (specialist attor-ney SBA law of inheritance) CHF 330.00 per hour (except ancillary work for inventories and certificates of inheritance: CHF 300.00 per hour);
Jaqueline Renggli, attorney-at-law: CHF 300.00 per hour
In addition to these fees, our actual expenses and the federal value-added tax have to be paid.
