How does the attorney charge in Geneva?


May I ask how does the attorney charge in Geneva?

I know it depends on various case of cause. I would like to know the general rules.

So far as I know, it includes:

  • Retainer fee. It seems USD$6,000 is a basic quotation.
  • Charge per effective hours of work. It seems USD$500 per hour is a current market quotation.

Are there any other items?

Besides, what does it mean “effective hours of work”? How will I know the attorney is really at work in that hours? How do I judge it is reasonable?

For examples, if client ask the attorney to report the latest status, or client ask the attorney to explain current situation, should it be charged?

Sorry, this is my first time to co-work with an attorney in Switzerland. Thanks for your advice.
