Riemann law firm
1. Legal assistance
Riemann and the client regularly agree on the legal assistance, the scope of the tasks, the involvement of the client and others and the services.
Upon receipt of the case, Riemann examines whether there is incapacity, conflict of interest or any other reason why Riemann cannot assist in the case. Riemann will, if necessary, help refer to another lawyer.
Riemann undertakes to the client to provide qualified legal assistance provided on time and to an agreed extent.
Riemann is subject to the rules of the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act and must therefore, among other things, obtain and store identity information on the client.
Riemann keeps all case files on file for at least five years from the end of the case. Original
documents shall be returned at the latest at the end of the case.
Riemann determines the fee based on the time involved, the scope of the work and the responsibilities associated with the task.
Costs and expenses incurred in connection with the proceedings shall be paid by the client in addition to the fee.
At the start of an assignment, the client will be informed, upon request, of the amount of the
fee, if this is possible given the nature of the assignment. If the fee cannot be disclosed, the way in which the fee is calculated, e.g. the hourly rates applied, will be disclosed. In consumer relationships, the client will be informed of the fee before the work starts.
Normally Riemann invoices quarterly in arrears. However, Riemann may require advance payment or
deposit before work commences, as well as advance payment of
major external costs.
The terms of payment are net 14 days from invoice date. In the context of late payment, interest is calculated in accordance with the provisions of the Danish Interest Act.
All client funds entrusted to Riemann are managed according to the Rules of the Danish Bar and Law Society and are deposited into client accounts. Accrued interest accrues to the client in accordance with the Rules of the Danish Bar and Law Society.
Riemann is obliged to treat any information received by the client or received about the client confidentially. All employees of Riemann are subject to an extended duty of confidentiality, and in addition, Riemann has security procedures for handling all confidential material.
All employees of Riemann are subject to special rules in accordance with applicable legislation prohibiting the disclosure of inside information about listed companies and restrictions on trading in listed securities.
Riemann is responsible for the advice provided in accordance with the general rules of Danish law.
However, the responsibility for both Riemann and its partners and employees is limited to a maximum of DKK 10 million per task, but that the total amount of compensation that one client is entitled to receive cannot exceed DKK 10 million for all claims that the client raises in one calendar year.
Riemann and its partners and employees are not responsible for indirect or consequential damages, including operating losses, data loss, lost profit, goodwill, image, etc.
Riemann's partners and employees are not liable for any mistakes made by advisers to whom Riemann has referred the client, just as Riemann and its partners and employees are not liable for any mistakes made by subcontractors to which Riemann, in agreement with the client, has left parts of the task's solution.
Riemann is insured for liability in HDI Denmark, a Danish branch of HDI Gobal SE, Germany with insurance cover of DKK 20 million.
Riemann's advice and these business conditions are governed by Danish law.
Any disputes between a client and Riemann shall be governed by Danish law and may only be brought before Danish courts.
