In the event that none of the above types of fees is agreed with a lawyer, the so-called non-contractual fee will apply. The amount of non-contractual fees is determined by Decree of the Ministry of Justice No. 177/1996 Coll., On lawyers ‘fees and lawyers’ compensation for the provision of legal services (lawyer’s tariff). The text of this decree is available, for example, on the website of the Czech Bar Association – here. The big disadvantage of non-contractual remuneration is that it cannot respond either to the specific circumstances of the case or to the client’s circumstances. This fee is typically applied in the case of ex officio (appointment of a lawyer by a court).
