If the attorney at law does not arrange otherwise with the client or if the client does not make another measure the attorney at law is obliged to provide all urgent actions within 15 days after the termination of the contract so that the client does not suffer any harm on his rights or legitimate interests. This does not apply if the client notifies the attorney at law that he does not insists on performance of this obligation.

In the event that none of the above types of fees is agreed with a lawyer (Olomouc 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).
