How Are Turkish Local Lawyers Who Provide Legal Services in International Commercial Disputes Usually Charged?
The Turkish Bar Association and the local bar association to which the lawyer is a member annually publishes an attorney fees scale that covers several types of proceedings.
The amount given in that scale are minimum amounts for the service provided by the attorney in regards to the case.
Without charging below of the amounts given in that scale, attorneys have the right to determine how to charge their service to their clients.
The most common ways to charge attorney fees in Turkey are either deciding on a fixed amount for the whole process – which is called ’’fixed fee’’ -, or charging the fees by how many hours spent on that case – which is called ‘’hourly fee’’ .
