What are European standards of legal services?

Standard № 1. Price

Lawyers should be professional, regardless of case value. Client may be surprised that in ten cents case legal services of Cai & Lenard’s lawyers are estimated at three thousand Euros. But one who pays the same three thousand for a case worth ten million will be surprised much more.

“I cannot imagine why a tax dispute legal support fee should depend on the amount of a claim! This turns a fee to additional tax for the client. Following this logic, doctors should bill according to the intensity of pain.”
Konstantin Pilkov,
Partner with Cai & Lenard

Standard № 2. Only necessary services

Cai & Lenard lawyers analyze new business and offer options. Only after strategy approval by the client the legal services actually start and the Firm is hired.”

“Client cannot and should not pay for lawyer’s listening and understanding of the case. Before purchasing, all of us want to check the quality, make sure that the product suits us, and get answers to questions. Legal services are no exception.”
Dmytro Symanov,
Counsel with Cai & Lenard

Standard № 3. Flawless reputation

Each advice is carefully weighed, every action is well-considered. Mistakes are exorbitant luxury, which Cai & Lenard’s lawyers used to work without.

“History, name and reputation of the Firm will speak when advertising & PR will fall silent. This is where it all started and what we will hand down to partners who will come after us. There is no greater value. There is no greater burden of responsibility. No guarantee is more reliable.
Daria Zaseda,
Partner with Cai & Lenard
