The type and amount of services, and the term of the contract can be negotiated individually with every client .

What is the difference between hiring a legal adviser and the conclusion of a contract for the subscription to legal services?
The differences are in the type of contract:
- When hiring a legal counsel it is a labour contract, so the employer should comply with the labour law (payment of social security, holidays, arrangements for the termination of the contract, providing of work space, legal information systems, materials, compliance with working hours, etc.)
- When hiring an attorney the contract is civil (meaning less restrictions), so parties can negotiate the period, termination conditions, the volume of services to be included in the agreed price. The cost of supplies, work space, social security payment, etc. are at the expense of the attorney.
There is no difference in the quality of work done, since it depends on the knowledge of each individual lawyer.
