Terms & Conditions

In accordance with our values, we attach the greatest importance to providing our services in a responsive, operationally efficient and transparent manner :

Deadline

Keen to meet our clients’ expectations, we agree beforehand on the date and time at which our services must be provided. Meeting this deadline or fulfilling it early is one of our commitments. 

Deliverables

We tailor our services to meet the needs and expectations of our clients.  Depending on whether they wish to have an overview of a particular issue or strictly practical advice, we will either provide you legal memoranda, briefing notes or email summaries that are always accompanied by actionable recommendations. 

For the sake of efficiency, we systematically attach a summary of our takeaway points to any document of more than five pages.  

Costs

In general, the firm’s services are billed on a time-spent basis. 

The hourly rates charged by Magenta depend on the level of experience of the lawyers involved. 

However, depending on the nature of the matters that our clients entrust to us and/or in consideration of the nature of the relationship, Magentamay agree to the following specific terms of retainer:

  • Preferential hourly rates (price based on volume of fees, blended rates, etc.)
  • A fixed fee for the entire scope of engagement
  • A fixed fee together with a contingency fee

These agreements are formalized in writing prior to the start of the engagement.  Finally, and in order to be as transparent as possible vis-à-vis our clients, all of our statements of fees are accompanied by time & expense timesheets itemizing the services provided by each member of the legal team on a daily basis.
