The patent attorney performs his/her activities for a fee and has the right to request a reasonable advance from the client (Section 40, Act No. 417/2004 Coll., the Act on Patent Attorneys and on Amendments to the Act on Measures for the Protection of Industrial Property).
Clients are advised to inquire about the application of the type of fees, or their amount, before the actual legal action, consultations (including telephone consultations), etc.
Contractually by a written agreement
The contractual fee must be agreed in writing. The contractual fee may be concluded by email, e.g. by agreeing to an offer for services.
