For attorneys the following professional rules apply:

  • Professional Code for Attorneys
  • Occupations Rules for Attorneys
  • Federal Ordinance on Attorneys
  • Professional Rules of Attorneys in the European Union.

You can retrieve these rules on the webpage of the Federal Lawyers  under http://brak.de.

The Federal Ordinance for Attorneys (BRAO) obligates attorneys to obtain a malpractice insurance with a minimum coverage in the amount of 250,000 €, Sect. 51 BRAO. This requirement is met by Dr. Stefanie von Werder which has a malpractice insurance from Allianz Versicherung AG.

The Act on the Remuneration of Attorneys (RVG) stipulates that the fees and disbursements of attorneys are calculated based on the value of the subject-matter dealt with by the attorney. This typically is an amount of money which the clients demands that the other party pays to it. If the dispute is not about a claim for payment, e.g. in case of a divorce or a termination of employment, the value of the matter is determined according to fix criteria which I am happy to explain to you. In case the value of the matter is in dispute, it is determined by the court.

The amount of the remuneration is determined  according to a fee schedule, attachment 1 to the RVG. In case of dispute, the amount of the fees charged by the attorney is reviewed by an expert opinion of the Lawyers Chamber.

The remuneration can also be agreed between client and attorney. Such a remuneration agreement must be signed separately outside the form power of attorney which the client gives the attorney.
