Fixed legal fees

- Setting up a company in Lithuania
- Registered address service in Lithuania

All of the above fixed legal and accounting fees shall be paid for before the start of work. The main advantage of a fixed fee is that it cannot be changed thereafter and, when ordering the required service, you will know exactly what is included in the agreed amount, when the work will be completed and what obligation our company has to you.
Hourly legal fees
An hourly fee for legal services provided by Company in Lithuania UAB is the most common method used to pay for legal services. An attorney will keep track of the time spent on investigating the client’s request and providing the legal service itself. All legal projects are unique and payable depending on the amount of time spent on their implementation, since in most cases it is not possible to calculate the cost of implementation without a close investigation and review of the project. The hourly rate set by our company for participating in such projects is EUR 150+ VAT. Invoices for this type of legal service will be agreed upon with the client and issued by progressive stages to help produce a project budget.
Deposit system of payment for legal services
Advance/deposit payments for the provision of legal services will be transferred by the client to the bank account of Company in Lithuania UAB after the contract is agreed upon and signed by the two parties. The amount transferred will be deposited in a trust account and, while fulfilling a legal order on behalf of the client, we will be able to progressively withdraw funds from this account as payment for the work performed depending on the time spent on the project. If, after the fulfilment of the client’s order, unused funds remain in the trust account, they can be used to order other services from Company in Lithuania UAB.
Our company is always aimed at providing high-quality legal services to our customers in all areas of our practice. We are always open to dialogue, flexible in determining the cost of services and ready to discuss payment terms with you on an individual basis.
