The business terms and conditions of KLAR Law Firm apply to any assignment undertaken by KLAR Law Firm unless otherwise agreed in writing. The terms and conditions are set out below and can also be downloaded here.
1. Accepting an assignment
Before accepting an assignment from a client, we ensure in accordance with the Danish Bar and Law Society and our own internal procedures that no conflict of interest or other disqualification exist.
KLAR Law Firm is – like all other law firms – subject to the rules of the Danish Act on precautionary measures for the prevention of money laundering and funding of terrorism. We are thus obliged to collect the necessary identity information from new clients as well as existing clients that have not previously submitted such information.
All employees at KLAR Law Firm are subject to confidentiality obligations and all information received from our clients is treated as confidential.
3. Insider Trading
The partners and employees of KLAR Law Firm are subject to our internal rules on insider trading prohibiting the disclosure of inside information concerning listed companies and restricting trade in listed securities.
4. Fees and invoicing
Our fee is usually based on how much time we spend on the individual case. However, the following factors may also influence the size of our fee: The outcome of the case, the size and complexity, the responsibility and values involved and the degree of special expertise required.
A description of our hourly fees can be found on our website at the following URL: http://www.klaradvokater.com/Fees.73.aspx.
We shall be pleased to provide an assessment to the client of the expected size of our fee before we commence any work. In smaller cases where it is possible to foresee the outcome, we are often able to give a fixed price for our work with the particular case. In more complex matters, this is rarely possible. Instead we may be able to give a price for the execution of a subtask before we perform it as well as an estimate of the total fee. Additionally, we will keep the client informed of the time consumption in larger cases.
We invoice our clients on a monthly basis unless other invoicing terms have been agreed upon or where appropriate. The terms of payment are net 14 days from the date of invoice.
We normally request advance payment in relation to outlays and other case-related costs. In some cases, we may also ask for advance payment of our estimated fee. Transportation time is invoiced at 50% of the hourly rate, except where we perform work for the client during transportation or where another arrangement has been made.
5. Intellectual Property Rights
Unless otherwise agreed with the client, the copyrights and other intellectual property rights to the work, documents and other material produced by KLAR Law Firm shall belong to KLAR Law Firm.
6. Liability and limitation of liability
The lawyers of KLAR Law Firm are all subject to the rules of the Danish Bar and Law Society and we therefore solely advise on Danish Law.
Our legal advice is targeted at each specific commission and it should not be used for any other purpose without our written consent.
We are liable for the advice rendered to our clients according to the general rules of Danish law.
Our liability is limited to DKK 10 million for each matter. Our liability for any loss covers only direct losses. KLAR Law Firm is thus not liable for any loss of profits, loss of operation, loss of data or goodwill or any other indirect or consequential loss.
The client can only bring a claim against KLAR Law Firm (i.e. KLAR Advokater P/S) and not against the individual partner or other employees.
7. Governing law and jurisdiction
Any dispute between a client and KLAR Law Firm shall be settled in accordance with Danish law and is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Danish courts.
