Our Approach


Noben | Simons manages each dossier in a highly professional manner.

We will handle your dossier pragmatically and efficiently right from the initial contact. The focus is always on open, respectful and transparent communication and this applies to both the conceptual progress of the dossier and the financial aspects.

Initial Contact

During the initial conversation we consider the nature and extent of the situation with you. We also provide information on our work methods and the financial consequences of initiating a dossier.

Dossier Management

We will assess the feasibility of the dossier as soon as possible. As part of our dossier follow-up procedure we not only provide theoretical advice, we also endeavour to provide tangible and pragmatic support where possible.

Termination & Archiving

We make every effort to process each dossier on schedule and within a reasonable period of time. Each dossier is terminated and archived with due care and attention and in the strictest confidentiality.

Our Tariffs

Noben | Simons focuses on transparency when it comes to costs and fees.Our tariffs are always discussed with the client in advance.

Fees

With most dossiers our fees are calculated on the basis of time spent,in which the nature and complexity of the dossier, and experience and expertise of the lawyer in charge, defines the hourly rate.In some cases the extreme urgency of an intervention and the achieved result will also be taken into account.


Depending on the nature of a dossier, the fees can also be based on a fixed amount or calculated as a percentage of the achieved outcome. A charge for administrative and secretarial costs will also be added to our fees. In principle these are fixed amounts for each letter, copy, etc. At the start of each instruction we prefer to record any agreements in contract format, based on the model contract formulated by the Orde van Vlaamse Balies (OVB – Flemish Bar Association).
