Frequently Asked Questions

What's Mediation?
Mediation is an extrajudicial, private and voluntary, procedure of conflicts resolution and is especially dedicated to all litigation in which there is an interest of its stakeholders to fulfill the consequences of the solution to be found, allowing the maintenance of their relations (commercial, neighbourly, friendly, family, good name, etc.) or its improvement, through an attitude of civic responsibility and cooperation, respectful and confidential, in solving the problem.
Do you elaborate Drafts and Contracts?
We prepare and provide drafts of texts and legal documents, namely, contracts, powers of attorney, minutes, letters, applications, etc. Texts elaborated with rigor and topicality, in various areas of Law.
How is your team built?
All of our exerienced lawyers are fully registred members of the OAA (Angolan Bar Association). Our team is, also, endowed with a solid academic background and knowledge in various legal spheres and sectors of activity. These facts allow us to advise clients with technical quality and responsiveness.
Do you a have a pricing policy?
Because we are the clients' legal service providers and non-partners, we calculate our fees essentially based on the amount of time spent, which is by nature the best method of the effort to be developed in face of specific difficulties. Specific services are provided against the payment of fixed amounts, established in an internal table, of which we previously informed our clients. With regard to the fixing of fees, we have adopted two basic rules:
1. Procedures that have a fixed value, established by an internal table.
2. Procedures that can only be valued according to the time spent and the income obtained in that time. We call this factor "useful time spent".
More about the Princing Policy
All tasks are recorded with reference to the time spent, in a computerized time-sheet, which allows the client to have a strict notion of the time spent and the work performed, registered in court proceedings to which he also has access. If the time recorded is excessive for the developed task, it is reduced by the supervisor. Each category of lawyer has a hourly rate, depending on their experience and the lawyers-trainees are overseen by the most experienced lawyers. At the end of each case, depending on the results obtained, the value of the fees can be influenced by a "cause result function", which has a sense of success fee. This function is never applied when the result is not considered satisfactory, which can sometimes occur, despite our greatest diligence.
